(NOVEMBER 2014) – Four-cycle sprint karting teams from across the east coast traveled to Kershaw, South Carolina, October 17-19 for the season-closing World Karting Association RLV Gold Cup Series Grand Nationals at the popular Carolina Motorsports Park, located roughly an hour south of Charlotte on U.S. Route 521.

Coyote owner Jim Lipari would race the new XP in the Animal Medium division and Florida’s Sean Meier was ready to test the new Wide Track in the Senior Pro Gas Animal classes.

Lipari was also focused on a national championship as Animal Medium wins at Jacksonville in March and South Bend in August had him in place to score the class title.

SPENCERPORT, N.Y. – Wayne Wispelaere, founder of one of the all-time leading American go-kart chassis manufacturers Coyote Products, passed away last week, September 25, at age 66.

Wispelaere founded KIM Associates in 1972 and several years later the company would become Coyote Products, featuring its leading chassis model, the Coyote “Bullet.” With the help of his brother, Ed, Wispelaere started the business working out of his garage and basement at his Spencerport, N.Y., home near Rochester.

Mark and Jim Lipari purchased the building from Wispelaere in 2007, and the father-son duo continues to operate Coyote at the Turner Drive location today as Bullet Industries, DBA Coyote Motorsports.
