May 07, 2007 - Stouffville, Ontario -- The racing season kicks into top gear this coming weekend (11-13) with the opening round of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship at Goodwood Kartways and 16 year old Mike Vincec will be on hand to defend his ICC Championship. A double-champion in the series in 2006 (ICC and F1-K Sr.), Mike just missed the Rotax Sr. championship for the hat trick and is hoping for a strong performance to kick off the season.

Immediately following the race on Sunday, the Cameron Motorsports driver and the team will be heading to Newcastle Motorsports Park in Indiana for round two of the Snap On Stars of Karting presented by Indy Racing League series. Mike had a strong run in the opening Race of The Americas round and as the series' 2006 Rookie of The Year, his focus is to fight for the championship in 2007. His performance in the opening round has also catapulted Mike into the top five of the Ekartingnews driver rankings to start the season, moving up eight positions.

"It's hard to believe that it is May and our national series is about to begin," offered Mike. "It used to be that we would only have a couple of club races under our belt by now but with the Florida Winter Tour and an early start to Stars, one season seems to run into another plus we also did some testing in cars in between."

The road trip continues following the Stars event at Newcastle as the team will head to their home track, Cameron Motorsports Park in Hamilton, Ontario for round two of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship. "We might normally have a month off at that point" notes Mike "but if all goes according to plan, there is a chance of competing in a couple of car races before we hit the streets for the Barrie Grand Prix. We'll keep you posted."

Mike and the Cameron Motorsports team will hit the track Friday (11th) for practice with the feature ICC final on Sunday at 2:00 p.m.
