Simon and Kieran, a father-son racing team, have been working together since 2007 to capture the Atlantic Rally Cup 2WD championship in 2010, 2011, and 2012. While well known inside the United States, the team also steps up to compete on an international level and even runs in the occasional WRC event. They have competed in over 40 rally events and work hard to maintain a strong finish record.

“We are very excited about this opportunity. Axcel Sports produces impressive designs and equipment and we are honored by their support of our team” says Kieran, the team co-driver. “Axcel Sports was able to take our themes and colors and really bring them to life in the suits; we cannot wait to show off our new fire- suits!” "Axcel Sports were easy to work with when designing our new suits and very creative with our logo and color schemes", says Simon, the team driver.

The USUK Racing team completed the 2013 Sandblast Rally, capturing 2nd in class and 10th overall. They have plans this year to also race at NASA Rally Sport events including Empire State Rally, Rally West Virginia, Black River Stages, Hyperfest, as well as other events across the United States in their newly built 1995 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS.

Axcel Sports produces auto racing, karting, motocross and motorcycle road racing protective safety gear and is known for their cutting edge designs and product quality. “I can’t be happier than to have a great father/ son team wearing our gear for the 2013 season. I only wish I had that opportunity myself when I raced in the Pro Rally Series. I wish them the absolute best this season and we truly appreciate their support of Axcel” stated Brian Burley, CEO of Axcel Sports.
