Richert Set to Debut Slingshot Racing Cup This Week Winnipeg, Canada
Last year at this time, David Richert was fortunate enough to become just the 4th Canadian to finish a race through the streets of Monte Carlo at the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix weekend.
This year, Richert is set for a new challenge as, together with S.A.R. Sport and Recreation in Steinbach, he will debut the world's first ever Slingshot Racing Cup. Richert will also be participating as a driver in all on-track race events.
"I'm extremely excited to be part of this ground-breaking championship and play a part in growing it from the bottom up. The initial response has been fantastic and everyone is looking forward to racing around the circuit in a Slingshot this week."-David Richert
The racing action is set to begin this Thursday, June 1, at Gimli Motorsport Park with the green flag dropping at 3pm for Race #1.
Polaris, creators of the unique 3-wheeled Slingshot, are extremely excited to see the championships debut...
"We couldn't be more excited to be working with David and S.A.R. as they bring together the Slingshot Racing Cup. Slingshot is constantly looking for ways to show the capabilities of the vehicle and this is a perfect opportunity to partner with a terrific group of people that are as passionate about racing and Slingshot as we are on the brand team. We are excited to see it all come to life and cannot thank the team enough for all the hard work they have put in to make this happen." -Kevin Reilly (VP of Marketing - Slingshot)
At the end of this season the Slingshot Racing Cup championship winner will be given the exclusive once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience driving Richert's ultra quick open-wheel race car in Europe with a professional race team.
