The Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge heads to the familiar grounds of Canadian Tire Motorsport Park this weekend as Mosport Kartways plays host to round two of a four race championship. The event also kicks off a series of major events scheduled at Canada’s home of motorsport during the summer months. While the layout is nothing new for karters, the format will be as the CRFKC looks to capitalize while running in conjunction with the Mobil 1 Sportscar Grand Prix.
The Mobil 1 Sportscar Grand Prix continues to be a favourite among CTMP race fans. Looking to increase the exposure of karting, CRFKC Officials have therefore put together a plan with CTMP to co-promote the event to those attending the Grand Prix this weekend. Intentionally, the karting event is scheduled to both start and finish later than a traditional kart race. The idea is quite simple: as on-track activities wrap up at the big track, thousands of race fans will be invited to turn their attention to the kart track just as finals begin.
“Since its inception the CRFKC has become known for running high-level kart races at first-class facilities,” stated event organizer Daniel Di Leo.
“As the series continues to grow, it is important for us to increase the exposure of the series for its drivers, sponsors and for the sport of karting as a whole. What better way to do that than to have thousands of motorsports’ most passionate fans come check out what we do? I’m sure it will be a great show!”
The event is a one-day stand-alone affair, and will take place at Mosport Kartways Saturday, July 8th, 2017.
Full race details for the entire weekend can be found below. For more information on Mosport Kartways and its events please call 905-983-7223 or visit www.mosportkartways.com.
