CAMERON MOTORSPORTS SUPERNATIONALS PREVIEW
"Team goals set high in prestigious karting event"
Hamilton, Ontario -- October 30, 2007 -- Canadian karting operation Cameron Motorsports will enter eight drivers in this year's edition of the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals to be held from November 14th -18th in Las Vegas, Nevada. With some of the worlds best descending on 'Sin City' Cameron Motorsports (CMI) pilots will look to impress and fight for victory on the temporary course adjacent to Sam Boyd Stadium.
Competing in the ultra competitive SuperPro division will be Intercontinental A (ICA) standout Cody Jolly. The Texan pilot will trade his 100cc Maxter powerplant in for the more powerful 125cc, six speed gearbox powered CRG and will do battle with the nation's best in Las Vegas. Joining Jolly in the SuperPro ranks is Ontario pilot Curtis Fox. The senior level driver claimed the runner-up position in Formula Senior at the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship (SRFKC) claiming a huge victory at the Barrie Grand Prix.
Competing in the S1 division will be Canadian drivers Mike DiMeo, David Ostella and Paul Hunter. Di Meo competed in the SRFKC series in Ontario, Canada and has faired quite well scoring victories in the final two rounds in DD2 and claiming a top three result in the Formula Senior overall points standings. Earlier in the year Di Meo also scored the DD2 Florida Winter Tour championship and will be back in '08 to defend. Young David Ostella will advance to the senior ranks and will make the SuperNationals his first ICC event of his career. Ostella has been a force to reckon with in 100cc junior action and will look to take the S1 SuperNationals crown.
Only one driver under the CMI tent will pull double duty this weekend as Ostella will join Alex Ellis and Dylan Gibson in Rotax Senior. Ellis is another one of CMI's juniors progressing to the senior ranks and will look to attack the temporary course and fight for victory. Gibson, who has a year of senior experience under his belt, has proven to be quick at each and every track he competes at. Look for all three drivers to be at the front in a potential podium sweep for the CMI squad.
Cameron Motorsports lone TaG entry will be in the hands of Canadian Enrico Menotti. The Canadian driver has been competing in Rotax Senior at the SRFKC and will look to do battle in the very deep and talented TaG field.
With Cameron Motorsports being the North American importer for Maranello Karts, the CMI team will be pitted with the factory squad in Las Vegas. European drivers and world champions David Fore and Alessandro Piccini will be in attendance competing against and helping Cameron Motorsports drivers.
"We are excited to have such great competitors coming to join our drivers," exclaimed Cameron Motorsports Danielle Duffy. "This is North America's most prestigious karting event and I feel that we have a great shot at taking several victories and with the help and experience from our European friends, we hope to do just that."
Not in attendance at the SuperNationals will be ICC pilots Gianmarco Raimondo and Mike Vincec. Instead, the duo will represent Cameron Motorsports as members of Sunoco Team Ultra 94 at Skip Barber.
