Star Wheels heads to Sutton
Series first time at Sutton, Ontario!
Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship
presented by Toronto Star Wheels visits Sutton, Ontario this weekend
TORONTO, ONTARIO - The Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by
Toronto Star Wheels make its inaugural visit to 3S Go Karts' Sutton,
Ontario facility this weekend, May 31-June 1.
The event was originally scheduled to take place at Innisfil, but technical
problems with the Innisfil track forced a change in the venue earlier this
week. Enzo Chiovitti, along with the other members of the Ontario KartSport
Development Group were able to secure the Sutton facility so the
championship could proceed as scheduled.
3S Go Karts is the home of the 3S Birel Racing team and many of the team's
members are happy to be racing at their home track. "It is too bad we
couldn't race at Innisfil," Mike Roth, Formula Senior points leader said.
"But I am very excited about this weekend because it is my home track, and
I will have a new sponsor, Pfaff Motorsport for the rest of the year."
While Roth hopes to keep his success going in Formula Senior, the same
could be said for PTK's Robert Wickens who leads the Formula Junior points
on the strength of winning both opening rounds at Mosport.
Also looking to keep winning streaks alive are PTK's Justin Mascoll in
World Formula, Gold Kart's Pearce Herder in Canada Junior and Rob Oakman in
The RotaxMax class will have a first time winner at Sutton because Mosport
winner, First Kart's James Hinchcliffe, will have to miss the Sutton rounds
due to a conflict with his Bridgestone/Firestone F2000 commitments.
Practice and qualifying will kick off at 9:00 am on both days and racing
for both the Ontario KartSport Development Group classes and the Sunoco Ron
Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels classes will
get underway at 1:00pm. As with all SRFKC events, the public is admitted
free of charge on both days.
For a complete schedule of the event, visit www.asncanada.com or for
directions to Sutton visit www.simcoekartclub.com. Future events will be
The Grand Prix of Barrie on June 20-22, Sutton on July 5-6, Hamilton on
July 19-20 and the series finale will go at Goodwood on September 27-28.
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. At the end of the season, eight drivers
will be selected from the series, plus two drivers from the ASN Canadian
National Championships. They will be invited to a one-day evaluation test
at the Bridgestone/Firestone Racing Academy at Mosport, provided they are
16 years of age prior to the date of the test. Out of those 10 drivers, two
will earn a full scholarship to the 2004 the 2003 Bridgestone / FormulaCar
Magazine F2000 Racing Series.
