PSL KARTING READIES FOR FLORIDA WINTER TOUR RETURN
Canadian team looking to continue winning ways in Sunshine State karting competition
TROIS-RIVIERES, QC (February 7, 2008) -- After a successful double-header weekend to open up the 2008 Florida Winter Tour, PSL Karting will escape the cold weather in Canada for the warmer conditions in Jupiter, FL for round two of the FWT Rotax program, which will be held this weekend at Moroso Motorsports Park. With 15 drivers running aboard CRG machines under the PSL banner and a good amount of testing done during the off weeks, hopes are high on continuing the podium streak in 2008.
Leading the way for PSL in Rotax Senior is Canadian Olivier Sirois. With two top tens, including a runner-up finish on Sunday at the opening round at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Sirois sits in the second spot in the standings, trailing the leader by just ten points. Joining him will be recent Mexico Rotax Max Challenge winner Rudy Camarillo and fellow Quebec pilot Julia Claveau.
The PSL Masters roster will be five-strong, led by 'Bad Brad' Smith. The North Carolina pilot comes into the Moroso event tied for the class championship lead with one victory already under his belt. Fellow PSL drivers Denis Lachance and Michel Legrand sit third and fourth in the standings; Lachance with two podiums in Homestead and Legrand with a couple of top-10 runs. Camil Villeneuve makes it four PSL Karting pilots inside the top-10 of the championship battle and he will look to improve his position this weekend in Moroso. Joining them will be Lachance's brother, Martin, who hopes to turn around the bad luck he battled with at round one.
Four Junior pilots will run under the PSL tent in Moroso. Showing the way is Jesus Rios Jr. - a two-time fourth place finisher at round one - as the Florida driver sits third in the class championship fight. Canadians Tommy Beshro and Chris Ernst will look to improve their results from Homestead and, on this outing, they will be joined by Mexican Ernesto Martinez. Also joining the PSL squad this weekend will be three Mini Max drivers. From Quebec, Zacharie Scalzo will make the long journey to battle in the competitive division along with Colombian drivers Juan E. Garcia and Camillo Forero.
The Moroso facility is a very challenging track and will test the PSL crew to the max as they focus on continued success.
