Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels ready to hit the streets of Barrie this weekend Annual street race marks mid point of the 2004 season

BARRIE, ONTARIO - The stars of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels will be the headline attraction at this weekend's Winning Colours Grand Prix of Barrie. The Barrie race also marks the mid point of the 2004 season, but few, if any drivers will have that on their minds as they head into this weekend.

"If there is one event everyone wants to win, it's this one," Tyler Givogue, a front runner in the headline Formula Senior class said. Givogue is not alone when it comes to wanting to win, in fact, in the past, some of the most competitive racing that the series has seen has taken place on the streets of Barrie. Five or six kart 'trains' all dicing for the lead are a common sight when the series hits the streets of Barrie.

Part of the reason why every driver and team wants to have a good weekend is the number of spectators that take in the action packed three days of racing. There is the potential for over 20,000 spectators this weekend, and they will witness the best karters that Canada has to offer. There are also many Barrie area drivers that will be looking to do well in front of their hometown fans.

Practice for all classes is on Friday, with five of the ten classes racing on Saturday, the other five will race on Sunday. On each race day, practice and qualifying happens in the morning, and the finals should get under way at 2 p.m. Like all Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels races, there is no admission charge for spectators to watch the races.

The objective of the SRFKC is to help foster a professional environment for kart drivers; help create a positive attitude towards appearance, conduct and discipline; help foster the employment of the best practices for the safe and fair running of competitions; and help kart drivers to move up the racing ladder to automobile racing.
