He will drive a 125 CC Rotax powered kart, provided to him by the GBR Manitoba Karting Team, a GBR Manitoba is a division of Burkett Racing Enterprises of Winnipeg.

"I’m really looking forward to getting back into a Rotax as it’s one of the quickest racing machines you can drive anywhere in the world" Richert said in a prepared release, "I spent many years racing karts in Gimli so to be able to go back and have fun with old friends will be a great time."

Testing takes place on Saturday with qualifying, and the main feature races, on Sunday.

Gates open at Gimli Motorsport Park on Saturday at noon, and noon on Sunday.
