Pelletier to compete in Rotax Max World Finals in Malaysia
LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC Quebec racer Maxime Pelletier got the phone call he had been waiting for since mid August late last week. The call, which told Pelletier he had been invited to compete in the 2005 Rotax Max World Finals, was a welcomed one.
"This really is a fantastic opportunity for me," Pelletier said. "I am really happy to have the chance to go to Malaysia and represent Canada and Cameron Motorsports."
Pelletier finished second in the Canadian National Championships in Rotax Max Junior, and that made him first in line, should a second spot for a junior driver become available. Canada has sent two juniors to each of the previous World Finals, and Pelletier was excited when he got the official word from Canadian Rotax importer, SRA Karting.
"It was the best phone call to get," Pelletier said. "The event is just a few weeks away, and now everything is in place. I am ready for this important championship in Malaysia."
The Rotax Max World Finals in Langkawi, Malaysia take place on November 22-26th.
