Team First Kart will look to use home track advantage at the final SRFKC event of 2003.
TORONTO, ON. (SEPTEMBER 25, 2003) -- First Kart North American regional championship drivers will look to use home track advantage this coming weekend as they will be competing in the final two rounds of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championships (SRFKC). Goodwood Kartways, located in Stouffville, ON. Canada will host rounds #11 and 12 and will conclude the season with the crowning of the series champions.
Several First Kart drivers will compete in the final event including Formula Junior standouts Michael Vincec and Nelson Mason. Mason, who has one win in the CART Stars of Tomorrow series will look to rebound from a 4th place finish this past weekend in Jacksonville, FL. Vincec, who has challenged the pro series has made the tough decision to focus regionally and gain some racing experience in two different classes. Vincec currently sits 6th in points in and has shown a great deal of improvement in his rookie gearbox year. 14 year-old Vincec will be a busy boy as he looks to move into the top five in the SRFKC Championship series in both the Formula Junior and Canada Junior divisions.
17 year-old Marco Di Leo of Markham, ON will also pull double duty as he will look to score another win in the Canada Senior division. Di Leo who is the Ontario Grand National champion currently sits 6th in the series championship and will look to advance forward at his home track. Di Leo will also compete in the ultra competitive ICC division where he has shown signs of speed and determination all season long but has been lacking the motorsports luck. Di Leo will look to score strong results at the track which he has scored several championships throughout his karting career
Other First Kart drivers that will look to make a good impression this weekend are 4-cycle Jr. Light stars Kevin Montieth and Jim Souch. Both of these young guns have been the head of their class, racing to the front and scoring several feature wins throughout the 2003 season
16 year-old shifter kart star James Hinchcliffe will give his fellow competitors in the Rotax Max division a chance at a win this weekend as he will miss the event. Hinchcliffe who has competed in four rotax events this season has swept the poles and feature events and currently sits 5th in the series standings despite missing five feature rounds in the SRFKC series. Hinchcliffe will be competing 45 minutes away at the famous Mosport International Raceway in the final event of the Bridgestone/FormulaCar Magazine F2000 series.
