Daniel Morad collects win and two other podiums in first four races
MOROSO, FLORIDA Markham racer, Daniel Morad is off to a flying start in his Senior class career. After two weekends of the Florida Winter Tour, the first being at Homestead and the second at Moroso, Morad has made an immediate impact on the headline MRP Pro Shifter class.
After a fifth in round one, Morad powered to a convincing win in round 2. "This is really good for our First Kart North America team," Morad said. The 14-year-old is in deep as he is competing against much more experienced and older karters, in the headline MRP Pro Shifter class. At Moroso, for rounds three and four, Morad came out of the gate fast by taking the pole for round three and backed that up with a pre-final win. "We just missed the setup for the final, which was run at night," Morad said of his third place finish in round three. In round four, Morad was once again third, and with that, left Florida with the MRP Pro Shifter points lead heading into the final two rounds.
"It was good to get the first win out of the way," Morad said of his Homestead performance. "You always wonder how a new team will come together and our new First Kart North America chassis, coupled with our TM by SRA power is very good."
Morad also feels it gives his new team a chance to get ready for the upcoming Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels. "With this being my first year of Senior class competition, it is great to be able to go to the Winter Tour and get ready. It really helps that we are getting great support from First Kart, Terry Ventresca, SRA Karting and of course my tuner Paul Lapierre. We'll be ready when the season starts up here."
Before leaving for Florida last week, Morad got a chance to work on the other side of racing as he was featured on a segment for the New VR News of Barrie, Ontario. "It was fun to do," Morad said. "Interviews and TV is an important side of racing, so the more I do the more comfortable I get with it."
