Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels starts second half this weekend at Sutton

SUTTON, ONTARIO -- One of the most historic tracks in Ontario Karting, 3S Go Karts in Sutton, Ontario, will host the fourth -- of six -- rounds of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels this weekend.

With this being the fourth weekend in the series, many of the drivers are planning their championship runs, including Formula Senior points leader Cale Meeks. "This is an important weekend," says the Wasaga Beach driver that calls Sutton his home track. "With no drops this year, every race counts."

Last year, the teams had the option to 'drop' one weekend, but this year every race counts. This gives each driver a complete understanding of how he or she is doing in the championship chase. More importantly, it puts an emphasis on obtaining results in every round, and while there is no substitute for winning, consistent finishes will definitely help the causes of most. "For sure, consistency is the key," says Leamington's Jennifer Rempel, who sits third in both Canada Senior Heavy and Light. She, like the others at the top of their classes know a win would be nice, but a dnf (did not finish) or a finish outside the top 10 would be devastating.

As they head into this weekend, here are the top three in each of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels classes; In Canada Junior Heavy, Pearce Herder leads with 305 points to Michael Glaze's 143. Glaze is only one point up on Justin Holtom. In Canada Junior Light, Keenan Harris leads by 18 points( 255 to 237) over Taylor Holdaway. JonMichael Ostella is third with 189 points. In Canada Senior Heavy, Aaron de Heus with 287 points, hold the top sport over Dave Patrick with 244 and Jennifer Rempel ith 170. In Canada Senior Light, De Heus again hold top spot with 285 points over Marco Di Leo, who has 222, and Rempel with 156.

In Formula Junior, the unbeaten Daniel Morad has 315 points. Richard Boake holds second with 197 and Mike Vincec has 157. Formula Senior is a close battle, with Cale Meeks leading Mike Roth by 61 points (251-190). Third is Tyler Givogue with 172 points. In Rotax Max Jr. Evan Hayden is leading with 233 points. Second is Maxime Pelletier with 199 and Eric Barrett with 179. In Rotax Max Sr. Marco Di Leo is unbeaten and he has 310 points. Second with 221 points is Robert Wickens and Mark Kitchen is third 146.

World Formula Junior is the territory of Willy Keatings, who is undefeated so far this year. His 310 points puts him at the top of the group. Matt Jackson is second with 200 points and Scott Laporte is third with 182. Adriano Bilotta heads up World Formula Sr. with 247 points. Chasing him are Corey Usher with 224 points and Esteban Palacio with 161 points.

The objective of the the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels 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.
