Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship makes history at Molson Grand Prix of Toronto
16 karters take to the track for demonstration laps

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- The Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels made history on Friday afternoon, when the series put 17 drivers in their karts on the Molson Grand Prix of Toronto track at Exhibition Place. It is the first time karts, and karters have been a part of the Molson Grand Prix of Toronto weekend.

The karts -- which are located in Thunder Alley -- drew large crowds on Friday, and will more than likely draw more fans when they take to the track for the second demonstration laps on Sunday, right after the ChampCar race. Sunoco, the headline sponsor of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels has the series trailer in Thunder alley, along with a huge display area.

The drivers ranged from Cadets to Seniors. Taking part were Darryl Timmers, Pearce Herder, Lloyd Shearer and his son Zach Shearer, Anthony Furfari and his brother Michael, Corey Luciano, Joshua Korenyi, Michael Adams, Philip Wang, Jim Souch, Jesse Facchini, Dylan Gibson, Reid Arnold, Darren White, Matt and Jason France.

The on track 'show' put on by the karters was an impressive display, as they did a few laps during the Friday session. "These things really fly," said one interested spectator. He was last seen heading for the series trailer looking for more information on karting and the SRFKC.

The objective of 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.
