Rounds three and four of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship will be held at Innisfil Kart Club (www.innisfilkartclub.ca) this weekend. "I am fairly confident this weekend," said defending OKRA F125 champion Frank Launi. "Innisfil is my home track and I think after a disappointing first two rounds for me, the CMP team will be out in force this weekend." Innisfil Kart Club is the home of CMP Kart and expect other CMP drivers to battle for the top spots.

CMP driver Brad Leliever is also ready to take advantage on his home track. "I could use a little luck," said Leliever. "All I've had so far is bad luck. This is the real start to my year - hopefully."

There are plenty of good teams set to challenge the CMP crowd at Innisfil. Among them will be the brothers Penfold, who pilot a pair of Chiovitti TM powered Hot Wheels Birels. Lately, the two brothers have acted like the more famous Schumacher brothers of Formula 1. Alex Penfold is at the top of the standings in Formula Senior with Richard in hot pursuit.

First Kart's Robert Wickens is one to watch in Formula Junior and Canada Junior. The likeable youngster made his mark at the first race weekend at Mosport, he will be out to build on his points lead this weekend. Gold Kart's Aaron de Heus struggled at the first weekend, but expect him to challenge class leader, and fellow Gold driver Kyle Herder at Innisfil.

"Sunoco has established a reputation for performance through racing. This is an opportunity to give something back to the racing community and invest in the future of Canadian motorsports.," said Rob King, Sunoco's Brand Marketing Manager. "I'm looking forward to seeing the action on the track this weekend."

Practice for Rounds three and four of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship go on Saturday June 14, with qualifying and racing on June 15. Come and see some of the best up-and-coming young racers in Canada. For directions or more information, visit www.innisfilkartclub.ca, or contact John Holgate at (905) 775-4686

The objective of the the SRFKC is to help foster a professional environment for kart drivers; help create a positive attitude towards appearance, conduct and discipline; help foster the employment of the best practices for the safe and fair running of competitions; and help kart drivers to move up the racing ladder to automobile racing. At the end of the season, two drivers will be selected from each of the four Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship classes, along with two drivers from the ASN Canadian National Championships for special awards. These drivers will be invited to a one-day evaluation test at the Bridgestone/Firestone Racing Academy at Mosport, provided they are 16 years of age prior to the date of the test. Out of those 10 drivers, two will earn a full scholarship to the 2003 Bridgestone/Firestone Toronto Star Wheels F2000 racing series
