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.

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.
