DPE Kart Technology and MGtires are proud supporters of the 2017 VCS TAG classes- with great offers up for grabs at the end of the series included the chance to win 50% of your next Arrow kart purchase.

TAG 125 Light on MG Yellows saw some of the fastest laps around Portland in a while with mid 35 second laps in qual trim (Over 1 sec faster than last year)

Rumour has it that there was an Arrow X5 test chassis at the pointy end of the TAG Light field as well- while another X5 went on to win KA3 Medium.
