Over the past two months BBR Karting has had an amazing journey travelling through North America competing for various Championships at nationals and international events. The stats speak for themselves which included, traveling over 9,100 km’s, on the road for 43 days, competing at the rotax Summer Shootout, Rotax Can Am, Western Canadian Championship, US Nationals, and the team did not disappoint with a total of 28 podiums, 9 wins, 11 poles including the US Rotax Nationals Super Pole, 2 championships and 2 tickets to the Rotax Grand Finals.
Bryce has become one of the top drivers in North America in Rotax getting on the podium at every event he competed in. Bryce took home 3rd at the Rotax Summer Shoot out. The following weekend he took the win and points lead in the Western Canadian Championship. Although Bryce suffered a major rib injury he had to take as much time off as possible and did extensive therapy. In the final round Bryce was still in pain, but managed to finish on the podium and gain enough points to represent Team Canada in Spain. Bryce finished 6th at the 2010 Rotax Grand Finals, and has full intention to repeat a top 10 finish in Spain.

It was an awesome weekend for Team BBR. Everyone had amazing speed and were consistently in the top 10. Sting Ray led the way with getting Super Pole in Rotax Junior. Jonathon Portz qualified 4th in Micro. It was his first time at Nationals. In the finals we didn’t have the luck we needed with a few crashes taking place in Junior and in Micro taking both Sting Ray Robb and Jonathon Portz out of contention. However Edward Portz had one of the most bad A@@ drives I have seen starting from 26th to finish 6th in the final in Mini Max. What an unbelievable drive. Heres a few photos from the weekend.

As the Summer season is here, more and more guys are taking the 2 cycle engines off their karts, and throwing on a Briggs L0206. I just finished building my L0206 Kart, and it got me thinking about what chain to use. The 35 chain in the past has been the #1 choice for most 4 cycle racers. Its a larger chain, reliable and flexible. 219 is the choice for 2 cycle engines. I wanted to test both setups to see if there was a time difference between the two but was having a bit of a hard time trying to figure out the equal ratios. I came across a nice sheet sheet that shows pitch diameter and its equivalent sprocket. If you do decide to switch this will help.Read More

I wanted to write an article to help fellow racers out and hopefully shine some light on the so called “Winning Chassis Setup”. It’s a common element when at the track to usually hear complaints about the chassis and the struggles we have all had trying to fix the kart in order to make it faster. In most cases adjustments are made but still drivers are lacking the desired chassis characteristic and will continue to search. This article is not addressed to the top 10% but more of the 90% of racers who are trying to improve. You will understand why later on in the article.
I want to first b...Read More
