Chiovitti, Holtom and Launi set for series opener
TORONTO, ONTARIO -- The three new members of Sunoco's Team Ultra 94 will make their competitive debut this weekend at Mosport in the season opening rounds of the 2004 Bridgestone/FormulaCar Magazine F2000 Racing Series.
The three new members, Sutton's Juliana Chiovitti, Innisfil's Frank Launi and Ottawa's Jamie Holtom are all anxious to get their F2000 season underway. "We have some big shoes to fill," Launi said heading into this weekend. "Matt [Champagne], Jordy [Vorrath] and Aaron [de Heus] all did very well in this championship last year, and we'll do our best as a team to deliver those same results to Sunoco."
Even though this is the first weekend for the Team Ultra 94 drivers in F2000 competition, it is by no means their first race action of the year. Juliana Chiovitti has been busy south of the boarder in Las Vegas, while Frank Launi has kept his skills sharp by running Formula Senior in the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship pPresented by Toronto Star Wheels. Jamie Holtom has probably been the busiest. He has been running RotaxMax Senior in the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship pPresented by Toronto Star Wheels, plus he is driving the Control Microsystems SCADAPack Civic in the Honda Michelin Series for Jonak Brothers Racing.
The Sunoco Ultra 94 team members will compete in four races over the three day weekend at the Driver Development Track at Mosport International Raceway.
