Goodwood Kartways to host season opener

TORONTO, ONTARIO The sixth season of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels will kick off this Friday, May 11 at Goodwood Kartways, which is located just north of Stouffville, Ontario.

Over the past five years, the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship (SRFKC) has provided Canada's next generation of racers a place to develop their skills this year will be no different. The class structure from last year remains largely intact, except for the replacement of one class with the potent Rotax Max DD2 Senior class. The class will be also part of a combined Ontario-Quebec championship, which will send the winner of the class directly to the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Evaluation Day at the end of the year.

The SRFKC is also very pleased that all of last year's associate sponsors are back this year, joining the headline Sunoco, and Sunoco Team Ultra 94 sponsorship and the presenting sponsor Toronto Star Wheels. Pfaff Motors is again presenting the Pfaff Fast Qualifier award to the pole sitter of each class, each weekend. GM Racing is back with the GM Racing Award which awards one driver each weekend who displayed outstanding skills. Pratt &Miller are also back this year with the Pratt& Miller Award, which award one team each weekend that that exhibits the highest levels of teamwork in the areas of presentation, preparation and results.

GM Canada, Rotax and The Decal Zone have all returned as associate sponsors.

At Goodwood, Friday will be a practice day for all classes. Saturday classes will feature Rotax Max Senior, Canada Junior Heavy, F1-K 60cc, Canada Senior and F1-K Junior. Sunday will feature Formula Senior, Canada Junior Light, DD2 Rotax Shifter, Rotax Max Junior and F1-K Senior.

This weekend, over 200 karters will begin their quest up the motorsport ladder, and all of them hope to follow in the footsteps of notable SRFKC graduates like, Daniel Morad, Robert Wickens, James Hinchcliffe, Devin Cunningham, Jamie Holtom, Philip Major, Maxime Pelletier and a host of others. You can see who will be next by paying a visit to Goodwood Kartways this weekend.
