Championship chases enter stretch run this weekend
HAMILTON, ONTARIO The fourth round of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels is set for this weekend at Cameron Motorsports Park, on Highway 6 in Hamilton Ontario. It is a pivotal round, as championship contenders are all planning their stretch runs in an attempt to seal their championships.
No championship is closer than Canada Junior where Gold Kart's Michael Di Meo currently leads Sodi Kart's Greg Rempel by just two points through three rounds, 224-222. DiMeo has improved each round going fifth, third, and winning the Pepsi Grand Prix of Barrie while Rempel sandwiched a win at Sutton with fourth place finishes at both Goodwood and Barrie. Firstkart.com's Kevin Monteith is very much in the hunt at 207, while Birel's Kenny Riedmann sits fourth at 178.
The Series' headline class is nearly as close as CRG's Robert Wickens' win and pole from Barrie put him three points up on firstkart.com's Daniel Morad in Formula Senior. Wickens' two poles, two seconds, and Barrie win amount to 280 points while Morad's total stems from wins at Goodwood and Sutton, a Goodwood pole, and third from the Barrie GP.
In World Formula Junior, Jeffrey May has a ten point margin on Scott Laporte after winning the Barrie Grand Prix, 199-189. Josh Korenyi sits third at 182 after a win at Goodwood, third at Sutton, and scoring pole at Barrie before having his helmet visor knocked off. He will be looking to reclaim top spot in Hamilton.
Canada Senior's Darryl Timmers leads the championship for Gold Kart at 224 after winning at Goodwood and following with a fifth and third. His margin is 17 points, but the field is chasing: Marco DiLeo, 207; Aaron de Heus, 198; Pearce Herder, 165; and Dave Patrick 147.
Defending champion DiLeo also leads Rotax Max Senior for CRG where his 237 points has created a gap of 60 points on the field. Devin Cunningham's pole and win at Barrie moved him into second for SH Karting/Tonykart at 177, while firstkart.com.s Eric Gerrits has 175 points. Kyle and Pearce Herder follow for Gold at 157 and 144 respectively, while CMP's Frank Launi has 133 points.
The biggest championship margin through three rounds is Cameron Motorsports CRG's Michael Vincec in Rotax Max Junior. Winning from pole at both Goodwood and Sutton and adding a third at Barrie have created a 98-point cushion to firstkart.com's Kevin Monteith. Ohter points leaders heading to round four are: Adriano Bilotta in World Formula Senior, Maxime Pelletier in Formula Junior, and Reid Arnold in Canada Junior Light.
Formula Junior kicks off a five race schedule on Saturday at 1:35. Its 30 lap feature will be followed by Canada Junior Light, Rotax Max Junior, World Formula Junior and Canada Senior. On Sunday Formula Senior begins the feature rotation at the same time, and will be followed by World Formula Senior, Rotax Max Senior, and Canada Junior 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.
