Post Factory Driver/Multi-World Champion Jonathan Thonon at LAKC
Prepared by: Race Tech Development

"Multi-time World Champion to provide coaching and chassis expertise"

PSL Karting So-Cal, of Fontana, California, is pleased to announce three test days featuring multi-time World and European Champion Jonathan Thonon. Set to support all CRG drivers with driver coaching, chassis tuning and more, the CRG Factory driver will be hired exclusively by PSL So-Cal for this amazing opportunity.

"I've been working from distance with Jonathan for over a year," explained Francois Doran, PSL So-Cal owner. "We test and develop new components together, and I send our latest R&D to him to be tested. I think now it's time to bring him in our pit and have him trackside."

Thonon, a multi-time karting champion, began racing at the age of eight and quickly began to lay the groundwork for his legendary karting career. In 2008, the Belgian earned both the CIK FIA European and World Championship titles in the ultra-competitive KZ1 category. 2009 saw Thonon claim back-to-back World Championship titles, while in 2010 the CRG pilot was on top of WSK action after taking both the World and European titles. The 26-year-old added another CIK FIA World Championship title in 2011 and is now one of the most revered drivers in the world.

"I'm excited to work with the PSL So-Cal Team," added Jonathan Thonon. "They have accomplished a lot of good things in 2013, and I look forward to improve upon this and to bring new winning perspectives to the team to ensure their future success. The interest that has been shown by all the drivers of every level since the announcement of this event is very exciting."

Not only will Thonon be offering three days of personal coaching, the multi-time karting champion will also be onsite and available for all PSL So-Cal drivers for driver coaching and training during the upcoming round of the LAKC (Los Angeles Kart Club). With over 200 entries per event, Thonon will look to bring that extra advantage to the PSL So-Cal team.

This effort brought forth by PSL So-Cal and Thonon will support all CRG drivers by providing top of the line coaching, chassis expertise, chassis tuning, lead and follow and more. Onsite for five days but organizing three test days (at three customers maximum per day), PSL So-Cal will offer the following dates and locations for this special driver coaching opportunity:

October 23rd : Calspeed in Fontana, CA
October 24th : Grange Motor Circuit in Applevalley, CA
October 25th: Calspeed in Fontana, CA
October 26th & 27th: (Los Angeles Kart Club Race Weekend) consulting work for all drivers under the PSL So-Cal tent

"We consistently look for an edge that no one has and I think bringing a big name like Thonon at a LAKC event will be good for everyone; our drivers, our tuners and the club," continued Doran.

Any interested driver is asked to call PSL So-Cal for pricing and reservations at 951-897-0550.

No, PSL Socal will only represent the CRG Brand. Thonon is still a huge asset as far as driver coaching for our customers and team drivers. The CRG line of karts is still the product Jonathan knows,understand and is familiar with the most.
