The Pro Wing Champ Kart was Clifton’s first race car that he ever drove in, thanks to his father, Harry Savage. This kart has been with Clifton since June of 2008, with his first racing being in it on July 3rd, 20008 where he finished 28th out of 38 karts.
Since the start of his career Clifton has driven this kart to over 15 top-10’s, 10 top-15’s and the closest win in Pro Wing Champ Kart history at Langley Speedway beating out another 2-kart draft the 2 karts of Clifton Savage Motorsports won by only 26-thousandths of a second after leading 18 of the 20 laps on July 17th, 2010.
Our Pro Wing Champ Kart is an Illusion chassis manufactured from The Kart Shop in Richmond, Virginia.
The Karts at Langley Speedway in the Rhonnda Claiborne, Realtor Pro Wing division run Briggs & Stratton modified flathead engines.
They run off of methanol which with the size fuel tank ran, it can last about 25-26 laps, but the division only runs 20 lap races.
The Pro Wing division runs on either Burris tires or Dunlop tires. It is open to what size you run in-terms of width, and to get the right stagger is determined how they are set beforehand and how they grow during use and heat cycles.
After initial start-up costs, Pro Wing Champ Kart racing at Langley Speedway is an affordable form of racing, and with the help of track owner Bill Mullis, the division also runs on Saturday
nights with the NASCAR divisions and fans to add to the racing experience.
