Gianfranco Mazzaferro, a member of the Ferrolati Corse Karting Team, will head to the Karting Grand Mere circuit this weekend looking to hoist the champions’ trophy for the third time in the 2012 season. Just a few short weeks ago, Mazzaferro vaulted the ASN Canada FIA Canadian Karting National Rotax Mini Max Championship trophy following his title-winning run in the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. Working with veteran tuner Nick Cosco, the duo have been leading the way in the Mini Max category as they look to continue their streak of championship winning performances. With support from engine builder Alex Vincent and driver coach Garett Grist, GF has been able to reward the Ferrolati Corse Karting team with solid results and championship trophies.
“I am really excited to head to Grand Mere with the points lead in the Coupe de Quebec,” comments Mazzaferro. “I really love the track and we have tested there recently. My Zanardi Kart from SH Karting has been a rocket all year and it would be cool to put it into victory lane one more time this season.”
The Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec driver will head west to the rolling hills of Grand Mere to take in the ultimate round of the six round championship series. GF enters the weekend with a commanding lead in the overall points standings and will look to race with the consistency he has shown all season. The finale will take place as a single round event, giving GF one more shot at the podium. Mazzaferro will be the sole driver under the Ferrolati Corse tent this weekend as he looks to add a fifth title to the team’s roster of international event championships.
“Looking ahead, this might just be my last Mini Max race. It would so cool to win this weekend and secure the championship in my home province,” smiles Mazzaferro. “I can’t say enough about how hard everyone has been working. The Ferrolati Corse team has given great support all year and backed me even when things didn’t go so great.”
GF and the Ferrolati Corse Karting Team will be in action in this weekend as they compete in the final round of the 2012 Coupe de Quebec event taking place at Grand Mere on September 8th.
