Close action highlights first day of action at Mosport

MOSPORT, ONTARIO With the Saturday races at Mosport being the first races of the second half of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels season, you would have expected drivers that were looking for a championship in 2007 to bring their 'A' game. That is what everyone did, and the result was some of the best racing of the year. Mike Vincec took the win in Rotax DD2 Shifter, Gary Klutt used a last corner pass to win Canada Junior Heavy. Garret Grist left no doubt as to who was the one to beat in F1K Cadet as he went flag to flag for the victory.

Aaron de Heus drove a fantastic race to win Canada Senior, while Vincent Rago won a hard fought F1K Junior finale.

Tomorrow's action should be just as intense. Qualifying starts at 10:30 am, and the finals go at 1:30pm.

Pfaff Fast Qualifier Addison Rayner

In F1K Junior, David Ostella took the win over Vincent Rago and Brendan Wales. Polesitter Addison Rayner was 'bumped off' on the first lap and had to start the final from the back.

That gave the lead to Brendan Wales, who was passed at the midway point by Vincent Rago and Zac Mahoney. Rayner came all the way from the back to third in the late going. They crossed the line with Rago winning, Mahoney right behind him in second then Rayner in third.
