Lachlan Defrancesco Earns USPKS Championship Title

Competing at the New Castle Motorsports Park this past weekend in the fourth and final round of the 2015 United States Pro Kart Series, Lachlan Defrancesco entered as a championship favourite in the Vortex Mini-ROK category as well a potential threat in the Yamaha Cadet class.

Scoring the victory in Yamaha Cadet on Saturday while finishing eighth in the Mini-ROK class, the championship remained in his sights.

In two intense Finals on Sunday Defrancesco would come up just short of victory in Yamaha Cadet, crossing a mere 0.091 seconds behind the leader after leading every other lap of the race, while finishing a disappointing fifth in Mini-ROK after racing with the leaders throughout the 15 lap pursuit.

But fifth place would be enough to crown Defrancesco as the 2015 Champion in the Mini-ROK category, adding another title for himself and the BENIK Kart brand.
