PR: Kingsley makes Junior National debut this weekend at Goodwood Kartways

Jeffery Kingsley, the reigning Canadian National Mini Max Champion heads to Goodwood Kartways this weekend for the opening round of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship as he looks to start off 2012 where he left off in 2011. The Port Hope, Ontario native is making his official debut as a Junior Max driver following a stellar Mini Max campaign that saw championships, podiums and race wins. The Grade 8 Trinity College student has tested extensively over the past few months taking in a round at the 2012 Florida Winter Tour and the opening round of the Coupe du Quebec held at SRA Karting in St. Roch, Quebec.

“I am very excited to be moving to Rotax Junior this year. Last year was great and taking the national title at Tremblant was the highlight,” comments the 13-year-old driver. ” I am looking forward to working with the entire SRA Karting Birel group. I really like the Birel kart and everyone is really nice. With the Nationals returning to Tremblant, I really believe this is the best place for me to learn the Junior Max program.”

Kingsley will head to Goodwood for testing this week with the crew from SRA Karting as he looks to follow up an incredible year that saw him earn the Rookie of the Year in the ECKC Mini Max class and join Team Canada at the 2011 Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in Al Ain, UAE as a National Champion. Kingsley has a full calendar of karting planned for the 2012 season, taking in races across Ontario and Quebec with an eye on a solid run at the Canadian Nationals in August.

“I had a chance to work with some great people over the winter,” comments Kingsley. “I really want to thank Kyle Herder from Karts and Parts and Dan DiLeo from Intrepid North America for all of their help and support. I learned a ton and I hope to use that information this summer.”

Kingsley races with the support of his family including four brothers and sisters along with backing from Whitby Toyota/Scion. For more information about this release or Jeff’s racing program, please contact Ian Kingsley at iankingsley@sympatico.ca.
