Will karting finally be unified?
eRacingvision acquires majority interest in CART Stars of Tomorrow - Initiating talks with SKUSA for unified series top priority
May 8,  2002

DIAMOND BAR, CA  - CART 'Stars of Tomorrow' founder Bryan Herta announced today that eRacingvision has acquired a majority interest in the race series. "I am very pleased to have eRacingvision join me in continuing to build on the successes of the Stars program," Herta said. "This is our third year of operation, and a critical one in realizing our vision of facilitating a clear, affordable national championship and ladder system."

"From the outset, one of our goals has been to offer PR and marketing services to top-level motorsports organizations." added eRacingvision's Glenn Holland. "The opportunity to join the CART Stars program is one we relish and for which we are fully prepared. We truly believe karting has immense, unrealized potential and we aim to continue to raise that bar in the future."

ERV's Brian Stiver commented, "This will be a very exciting time for Stars and the karting community in general. Along with the affiliation with Championship Auto Racing Teams, we have some excellent sponsorship developments in the works. Furthermore, it is one of our highest priorities to make the Stars of Tomorrow National race at Buffalo Bill's into a massively successful event."

Stars co-founder Hollis Brown has left the organization to pursue other opportunities in karting. "I want to thank Hollis for his help in bringing the Stars of Tomorrow program to the level it is today. I wish him he very best of luck in his future endeavors," said Herta.

One issue on the agenda for the new ownership team is to initiate discussions with Superkarts! USA on series cooperation and possible unification. "One doesn't have to look very far to see what division does to racing," said Holland. "It is a top priority for us to re-open dialogue with SKUSA in order to find common ground and effect real progress."

Herta added, "I have had several discussions with Bobby Rahal and (SKUSA CEO) Jim Murley on this matter. Unification is a compelling goal, and we are interested in these possibilities with SKUSA as well as other organizations."

One potential envoy in any discussions is Bobby Rahal. Rahal's team has provided the Champ Car tests that are the ultimate reward for the Stars winners the last few years. "I am very happy to hear that 'Stars' has the team of eRacingvision behind it," stated Rahal during Tuesday's practice sessions for the Indianapolis 500. "I believe it's imperative that Stars and SKUSA come together in a way that ensures the growing success of karting in North America. I am happy to do whatever I can to help in that area."

The CART 'Stars of Tomorrow' karting series is the official first level in CART's driver development system. Specifically designed as a driver development series, Stars focuses on recognizing the skills of the drivers rather than the technology development within the machines, using FIA/CIK international standards. The Stars program consists of several regional race series, plus three national and one grand national events. More information can be found at www.nakarting.com.

eRacingvision is a sister company to Ekartingnews.com, the largest media channel for karting, and eRacingoutlet, a racing products distributor and online store. eRacingvision focuses on multimedia public relations, marketing, promotion, and design. Its clients include the North American Karting Association, Team Rahal, Miller Brewing, and drivers such as A.J. Allmendinger, Colin Fleming, Matt Jaskol, and Scott Speed.
