Formula 1 Stars Ricciardo and Button at Pgr Kick-Off Event
Phil Giebler Racing, one of the most renown kart racing teams and Ricciardo Kart distributor on the West Coast, put on a star studded event for their customers at CalSpeed Karting and celebrated the birthday of Formula One Champion driver, Jenson Button.
Jenson invited his good friend and Red Bull Racing driver, Daniel Ricciardo as the duo spent the afternoon lapping, discussing the old days of karting with PGR drivers, and demonstrating the 2018 Ricciardo karts to the 90+ people at this very private event.

Red Bull Racing Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo was protagonist of a karting event on the eve of the Formula One Grand Prix in Monza –he finished 4th, despite the penalties forced him to start 16th.
On Wednesday 30th August, Ricciardo hit the track on the 7 Laghi Kart International Circuit in Castelletto di Branduzzo (Pavia) with his team Ricciardo Kart Racing–the brand born in 2015 with the partnership between Birel ART and the Australian driver.

Daniel has not only given his name to the different models, but will be involved in the complete design, production and development of the go-kart, providing Birel ART and customers, all of his experience and his passion.
"I am very happy to be able to kick off this project," - said Daniel - "I grew up racing karts, and even when I moved up to single-seaters I never stopped supporting this sport, always enjoying some kart racing in my spare time. Being able to follow the design and construction of a kart from a blank sheet to track debut is an adventure that’s very fascinating and I am glad to do this with a Partner who is just as excited: Birel ART. I hope that many girls and boys can learn this discipline, have fun and win with the Ricciardo kart."
