Solid Close to 2016 Gives Bright Future for Aluminos Chassis

The Aluminos name has been around North American karting for nearly a decade now, with owner Rob Soares involved in the sport much longer than that with other business ventures within the industry. When the Aluminos chassis made its debut in 2013, it quickly gained victories at the regional and national level. Soares himself piloted the chassis to victory at their home track in Sonoma, California while Kiwi Daniel Bray gave the brand its first SKUSA Pro Tour victory. Later that year, Kiwi Matthew Hamilton notched the first SKUSA SuperNationals triumph for the brand.

Team Aluminos is constantly among the top contenders at the major karting events in North America, including victories at the SKUSA Pro Tour, SKUSA SuperNationals, and others over the last few seasons. One event that continues to elevate in the western half of the United States is the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix. Each year, Aluminos has fought for victories and came away with the headline victory in 2015. Another solid driver roster for Team Aluminos traveled to the southern California city for the September 24-25 event, serving as the California ProKart Challenge finale. Once again, Aluminos was at the top edge of the fields with Kiwi driver Matt Hamilton defending his victory from 2015. A second victory was added by returning driver Jonathan Allan in S4 Super Master with Jason Pettit placing runner-up in S2.

Christchurch kart ace Matthew Hamilton is returning to the town of Lancaster in California this week to defend the S1SKUSARnd1PhoenixMattHamilton-2.jpg stock moto class title he won at the annual Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix kart street race meeting this time last year.

Lancaster is north-east of Los Angeles and as a round of the SuperKarts USA (SKUSA) organisation's annual California ProKart Challenge series it attracts some of the top kart racers in the United States.

The 2015 season is coming to a close, and the Aluminos operation continues to strive to be at its best for crunch time. When a season begins, teams and drivers work to be at its best when the prestigious victories and championships are on the line. Aluminos always positions itself to be among the contenders, and the recent Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix was a prime example. The seventh annual event in the southern California area took the California ProKart Challenge program and the best from the western half of North America to the city streets for a rare two-day event on a temporary circuit. Aluminos traveled south with a handful of drivers, coming away with a victory in the S1 Pro Stock Moto division behind Matt Hamilton and the triumph by Will Preston in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto category.
