The International Circuit of Lavelanet in France will again be the venue in June, 2010

The "Bruno Grana International Trophy" is an event in the CIK calendar reserved to drivers of karts equipped with X30 IAME Parilla 125cc-RL-TaG engines.

For the second consecutive year, this prestigious event will take place in France on the International Circuit of Lavelanet, an hour drive from Toulouse and Perpignan, a few tens of kilometers from the Spanish border.

From June 10th to 13th 2010, this race will involve all importers of the countries hosting an X30 Challenge and will award the official title of best worldwide X30 driver.

This year, France, Belgium, Greece, Portugal, the United States and Spain were represented. How many countries will attend in 2010 ? Who will succeed the Belgian driver Kenny Vermeylen ?

Bruno Grana, Managing Director and CEO of historic Italian Manufacturer IAME, was one of the first to show interest in karting and to convince the Parilla motorcycle engines manufacturer of the time, to produce kart engines, initially for exporting to the United States and then in the whole world.

This adventure led, in 1968, to the acquisition of the brand Parilla and to the founding of IAME (Italian American Motor Engineering), still the world leader, in the production of kart engines.

Going back to the trophy dedicated to Bruno Grana, the organizing team has already begun work to refine in details the technical and sporting regulations, the host of drivers and the management of the races, in order to repeat the success of this year but never neglecting the outstanding values of Bruno Grana: "Competition, conviviality and control of costs"

Thus, an offer "turn-key" with a very special price will be offered to non-Europeans drivers thanks to the efforts of IAME, and, of course, also to the efforts of its French and Belgian importers (Eurokarting, Cedinap and Alpha) and the International Circuit of Lavelanet. Equipment ready to race, mechanic, food, Paddock, consumables, entry form .... Everything will be included (excluding only travel and accommodation of the driver).

The driver will have to come with only ... his helmet and overalls!
