Marco Di Leo cleans up with three race wins at Cameron Motorsports Park
HAMILTON, ONTARIO - Markam based karter Marco Di Leo threw his hat into the championship ring in not one, but two classes at Cameron Motorsports Park in Hamilton, site of Round 2 of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels this past weekend.
Di Leo set the standard by taking pole, pre-final and the final race win in Canada Senior Light on Saturday, then backed that up with a pole and two final race wins (Round 1 and 2) in RotaxMax Senior on Sunday.
"It was a pretty good weekend for us," Di Leo said on Sunday. "We were strong in both classes, hopefully that will continue for the rest of the year."
Saturday saw action in four Junior and one Senior classes. In the Junior classes, Taylor Holdaway (Canada Junior Light), William Keatings (World Formula Junior), Daniel Morad (Formula Junior) and Michael Vincec (RotaxMax Junior) all left Hamilton with wins. Morad, Keatings and Holdaway are undefeated in their respective classes this year.
On Sunday, two finals were run to make up for the postponed Goodwood (Round 1) Sunday classes. In addition to Di Leo, Round wins went to Cale Meeks (Formula Senior Round 1) and Tyler Givogue (Formula Senior Round 2), Aaron de Heus (Canada Senior Heavy Rounds 1 and 2), Esteban Palacio (World Formula Round 1) and Adriano Bilotta (World Formula Senior Round 2)
Di Leo's day was complete when he was awarded the Round 2 GM Racing Winner's Circle Award, which goes to a driver judged to have displayed outstanding competition skills and sportsmanship. The Round 1 GM Racing Winner's Circle Award went to Michael Vincec.
The Pratt & Miller Team Spirit Award, which awards teams that are judged to exhibit the highest levels of teamwork in the areas of presentation, preparation and results, went to Quebec based SH Karting for Round 1 and to Innisfil, Ontario based CMP Motorsports in Round 2.
The series now gets ready to hit the streets of Barrie, Ontario on June 25-27 for the Winning Colours Grand Prix of Barrie
