One of the founders of FirstCorner, Turkish based Avitas Motorsport has been trying so hard to bring in a young Turkish talent to RX Lites World Championship. On this way, Ayhancan Guven participated in the pre-season test day in Hockenheim with the support of Toksport WRT. Unfortunately, Guven decided to withdraw only 3 days before the opening race, even he had his entry application done.
After this incident, Avitas Motorsport carried on its search and finally agreed on a contract with Ali Turkkan for Lydden Hill,UK and Hell, Norway rounds and also for the rest of the season as optional with the support of worldwide freeshop chain stores UNIFREE.
Ali Turkkan -who is sponsored by UNIFREE and supported by Toksport WRT- is hosted by FirstCorner at MettetRX this weekend where RX Lites 2nd round of the season underway. He recieved detailed information about RX Lites Championship and the cars from the founders of FirstCorner; Andreas Eriksson, CEO of Olsbergs MSE, and Halid Avdagic, Director of Avitas Motorsport.
Ali Turkkan has started racing when he was 5 and now he is 17 years old. He is also son of a well-known Turkish rally driver Burak Turkkan. He recently has visited Avitas Motorsport where all SuperCar Lites are designed and produced. Afterwards, had chance to test a mid engined racecar at the Korfez Race Circuit which is owned by Turkish Automobile Sports Federation.
We would like to welcome him and wishing all the best during the season.
