200 plus racers to challenge for 10 King of the Bay crowns

TORONTO, ONTARIO The third round of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels is set for this weekend, June 22-24 at Barrie, Ontario. The Barrie Grand Prix is the only street race on the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels.

Over 200 drivers are expected to challenge for the coveted King of the Bay title in 10 different classes. Practice will be all day on Friday, June 22. Qualifying and the pre-finals will be on Saturday, June 23, with the first of the 10 pre-final races slated for 3:45 p.m. All 10 class finals will run on Sunday, June 24, starting at 10:45 am.

Heading into the weekend, the current class leaders are; Kevin Monteith in Canada Junior Heavy, Garett Grist in Canada Junior Light and F1-K Cadet, Evan Hayden in Canada Senior, David Ostella in F1-K Junior and Rotax Junior, Mike Lennie in F1-K Senior, Mike Vincec in Formula Senior and Rotax DD2, and Marco Di Leo in Rotax Senior

One of the most popular races in Barrie is the media race, which raises money for charity. This year the beneficiary this year will be the RVH - The Royal Victoria Hospital. They are expanding their facility to accommodate the growing population in Barrie. The RVH is building a full scale Cancer unit and they will open Ontario's first mobile Chemotherapy unit. The media race is set for noon on Saturday.

Media members are teamed up with racers based on the amount of money they raised for the charity. Sunoco, the headline sponsor of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels, matches the total amount raised by the racers. In year's past, the total donation has reached the $20,000 mark.

SRFKC driver Brad LeLiever has already had a busy week with his daughter being born on Tuesday afternoon. The latest LeLiever, Sydney Elizabeth Anne LeLiever is expected to take in her first race this weekend, as her dad takes to the streets in Rotax Senior.

Like all SRFKC events, there is no admission charge for spectators.
