CAMERON MOTORSPORTS: MELISSA CURRAN AND MARANELLO
"Canadian pilot set to compete in '08 Florida Winter Tour"
Hamilton, Ontario -- December 30, 2007 -- The Cameron Motorsports (CMI) elite karting team is pleased to announce the re-signing of Rotax Senior rookie Melissa Curran. The Ontario, Canada resident will travel South throughout the winter months to compete in her new Rotax powered Maranello chassis at the '08 edition of the Florida Winter Tour.
"We are excited to have Melissa back with the Cameron Motorsports squad," exclaimed Danielle Duffy from the Cameron Motorsports Karting Complex in Hamilton, Ontario. "She is our first driver aboard our new line of Maranello chassis and I am confident that she will represent us well throughout the 2008 racing season. Both Melissa and the Cameron Motorsports team are ready to head south and get back on track"
Curran, who will make the jump to the senior ranks of karting, will also switch chassis' switching from a CRG model to the new Maranello. Though Curran will be swapping brands, she will not be switching teams as the Canadian karting operation of Cameron Motorsports will import and distribute both lines in 2008. The young talent will also be under the watchful eye of national level tuner Brian Bettencourt.
"Melissa is a fast and fearless driver," commented CMI's Team manager Trevor Wickens. "The Maranello chassis is a great chassis and we can't wait to begin working with it. We will have a few on track at the Florida Winter Tour and hope to begin with some strong results."
