IAME & RAK TRACK
In 2014 RAK TRACK joined forces with IAME to become the sole distribution agent for the range of IAME karting engines in the United Arab Emirates. Along with the distribution rights for IAME karting engines RAK TRACK will also organise, promote and run the IAME X30 Challenge racing series in the United Arab Emirates.
In 1958 the first go-kart was built in the USA. Bruno Grana in those years was working for Moto Parilla and when he saw the go-kart, he suddenly fell in love, immediately understanding its potential. In 1959 Grana convinced Parilla to join this new market and enter the history of Karting. Some years later, together with his colleague and friend Cesare Bossaglia, he established Komet, a Company expressly dedicated to the Karting world. 1968 was the decisive year, Parilla and Komet joined together into IAME, "Italian American Motor Engineering" which name comes from the close relation with the United States. With the acquisition of the brands BM and Sirio, Bruno Grana put the basis of what is still today the asset of a worldwide known Company.
In IAME history meets technology. All the experience achieved in more than 50 years of production is wisely managed by advanced and last generation machineries. Every unit is managed through sophisticated computers: since the idea of the engine in the designers' mind, to its delivery throughout the world.
