It was confirmed today that a three-weekend six-race MOTOMASTER Ron Fellows Karting Championship (MRFKC) will go ahead this season starting with Race One and Two on August 1, 2 at Mosport Karting Centre.
Ten classes of kart racing will be open for registration starting today at the official series website: ronfellowskarting.com. Any driver with a valid 2020 kart-club racing license will be eligible for this year.
“On behalf of Motomaster and our series organizers, we want to say thank you to the karting community for their patience and support while we finalized a shortened season during these very uncertain times as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic,” said Ron Fellows, MRFKC founder.
MRFKC is mandating mask-wearing at all times on the event property during the race weekend. Only the driver, one mechanic, and one guardian will be allowed to attend the weekends to minimize on-site personnel. No spectators will be permitted for the time being.
Fellows continued on the note of community health and safety by saying, “From the MRFKC staff through to competitors, we are expecting everyone to be respectful and responsible with regards to mask-wearing and physical distancing. We have seen the global racing community follow these same protocols with great success and I’m confident the karting community will want to follow the lead of series’ such as Formula 1, IMSA, IndyCar and NASCAR.”
Please review and adhere to MRFKC protocols posted here.
