Toby Rinaldoni : ICA Quebec Champion 2004
Grand-Mère, Quebec -- September 26, 2004 --. After more than six weeks of mandatory rest to heal broken fingers suffered during the penultimate round of the Stars of Tomorrow karting series, in the United States, Tony Rinaldoni has clinched the Quebec karting championship title of 2004, for the fourth time in a row. The Delson-born driver ended the last round of the season with a perfect score on the Grand-Mère kart track.
Multiple Junior champion in 2003 and now in Senior class in 2004, Toby Rinaldoni wasn't disturbed by his absence of nearly two months from the tracks. On the contrary, the promising driver had wings. After getting the best time of his qualifying heat, Toby set out to win the pre-final and the final.
"I am more than satisfied with these performances. My fingers were sore during practice on Saturday, but I think the adrenalin during the races on the following day acted as analgesic because the pain disappeared!," said Rinaldoni on Sunday night, during the award ceremony.
Some people wondered if the driver's potential was at its peak after these few weeks of rest. "In my mind, said Rinaldoni, it was crystal-clear that I was coming back mentally stronger. On the contrary, with the championship at the tip of my fingers, I couldn't have negative thoughts. Furthermore, I still have the Stars of Karting finals, next November, in Orlando."
