It’s finally official, The Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge has added a third track and a fifth race their 2018 schedule.
Series organizer Daniel Di Leo spoke to us back in September about the plans to add a new track to the program and after much deliberation, he has confirmed that Hamilton Kartways will join the CRFKC, hosting round two on June 3, 2018.
“We have been actively looking to expand the CRFKC by adding a new venue for some time now. I’m finally able to confirm that a new track has been added to the schedule. We’ve added a fifth race for 2018 and it will be at Hamilton Kartways, the home of Prime Powerteam, a huge supporter of the CRFKC.”
