RUBENS BARRICHELLO HIGHLIGHTS NF SPORTS DRIVER LINEUP FOR FLORIDA WINTER TOUR

February 14, 2019 – Traveling to the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, NF Sports is prepared to fight for the win with seven drivers from four different countries scattered across multiple racing divisions. With chances at victory in all classes entered, the Orlando based outfit has secured a partnership with KGT Racing Team in Italy to bring knowledge and the opportunity for driver placement across the United States and Europe, providing for a truly international program.

“We have entered our fourth year of operation and we continually seek success and the opportunity for growth,” explained Bruno Fusaro of NF Sports. “We have a very unique and strategic alliance with Italy’s KGT Racing Team and look to have a pipeline of drivers from Europe come to compete in North America, and vice versa. This alliance immediately added international drivers to our program as this weekend, NF Sports will be the home of competitors from Brazil, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Italy.”

Former Formula One star Rubens Barrichello will highlight the NF Sports driver lineup as he competes in the Vortex ROK Shifter class. Always a threat for victory, Barrichello will have his sights firmly planted on the top step of the podium this weekend. While Rubens is the lone NF Sports driver in ROK Shifter, Andre Nicastro will be the same in ROK Senior. Flying the NF Sports colors, Nicastro is a consistent frontrunner and will challenge to take the checkers on the temporary circuit this weekend.

A trio of Junior drivers will seek the solid results in the Vortex ROK Junior class as Brazilians Enrico De Lucca and Pedro Ferro are joined by Bolivian pilot Rodrigo Gutierrez. Looking to work together and work as a team towards success, the international drivers will do battle in one of karting’s most competitive classes. Riccardo Ianniello from Italy and Rafael Teran from Ecuador will also throw their hat in the mix in the Mini ROK division as they try to master the barrier lines circuit in the shadows of the Hard Rock Stadium.

Fusaro continued, “We have a talented driver lineup and great support from OTK USA. We are also working with engine suppliers from around the globe and this weekend will utilize KGT power from Italy and D2 engines from Brazil.”
