Italian Motors USA
Prize: 1 Spots to Race in the Rok Cup International Finals in Lonato, Italy

Italian Motors was founded in May of 1978, when Claudio and Beverley decided to open their own European auto repair service.

What began as a service shop soon grew into a large parts supplier, then into a car importership featuring such brands as Fiat, LanciaMaseratiInnocentiLada and Yugo. With the continual expansion of the business, Italian Motors quickly outgrew its original shop. The solution was to build a new facility and to transform the old one into an office and showroom.Claudio had long possessed a passion for racing, and competed regularly at Westwood in vintage car events. Italian Motors entered the karting fray and became the North American importer for the Tibi Kart in 1993. Two years later, IM decided to import the Italkart brand. Since then, the Italkart has enjoyed continued development with the IM team earning numerous titles in North American karting.

The growth of the IM business continues unabated. In the year 2000, an expansion to a second Italian Motors and most recently the SIMA Kart Racing Facility both which are located just across the border in Sumas, WA. Along the way, IM was appointed the exclusive North American importer for MIR racewear and one of just two exclusive importers for SKM Kart parts. IM is also an importer for Italkart, TM, Parilla and Efficiemme hones.

Currently, Italian Motors USA is one of the largest karting supply shops and one of the most successful race teams in North America. Its repeated successes at the track have drawn drivers from across the continent to seek out IM’s coaching and mechanical services. Now located in a 20,000 square foot facility in Sumas, Washington and having a full karting facility at their disposal, Italian Motors USA enters 2011 by solidifying identity's with new products, full time karting facility, training programs and supporting growth throughout thekarting industry
