Two top 10's for Brown in Hamilton
Tyler Brown shows consistency in Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship

HAMILTON, ONTARIO - Tyler Brown got his first taste of just how competitive the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship Presented by Toronto Star Wheels is. Brown had previously competed in the OKRA (Ontario Kart Racing Association) classes, which competed on the same weekend at the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship last year.

"It seems that teams and drivers really step up their programs in this championship. Our races were on the same weekend last year, but having now run in this series, what a difference," Brown said.

Brown competed in the hugely popular RotaxMax Junior class on Saturday, where he qualified sixth, just seven tenths of a second off the pole. In the pre-final, Brown dropped to 10th and then to 15th in the final because of mechanical problems. "The finals here are very long and the kart changes a lot. We learned a lot this weekend about how to set our 4B Racing PTK so we will be better late in the race at the next round."

On Sunday, Brown competed in the Canada Junior Heavy, which is one of the most competitive classes in the series. After qualifying just six tenths off the pole in 13th for Round 1, and 10th in Round 2, Brown finished 10th and 8th respectively. "It is really hard to move up in this class - we are all very even. It is a question of tenths of a second per lap, this is what we are trying to find now. Still, I am happy for the results we achieved this weekend, and I'm sure we'll be stronger at Barrie in a few weeks time."
