Back in action Sunday for race two of the opening round of the 2015 Florida Winter Tour ROK Cup 30 Junior ROK drivers were all vying for the top of the podium.
David Makukas was the fasted in Qualifying, take the pole-position by the slightest of margins over Saturday winner Mathias Ramirez (OGP/TonyKart). Caio Collet (RPG/Kosmic) had a great run in qualifying to take third ahead of Enzo Fittipaldi (Piquet Sports/TonyKart) and Canadian Roman DeAngelis (KoeneUSA/TonyKart).
It was smooth sailing for Ramirez in the PreFinal as he held off a charge from DeAngelis to win the heat. Malukus failed to finish even a lap while Fittipaldi fell out of the top-five as Collet, Luis Forteza (PSL/CRG) and Arthus Liest (TechSpeed) completed the top-five. Michael d’Orlando (KoeneUSA/TonyKart) was sixth but a broken airbox resulted in him being removed from the results.
It was a tough go for the outside line at the start of the Final as DeAngelis fell back to sixth as Ramirez led through the opening corners and karts shuffled behind.
Ramirez fired off quick laps in the early going to build a big lead and even though Liest tracked him down as the finish approached, it wasn’t enough to make a move as Ramirez completed the weekend sweep, taking his second victory in as many races. Liest and Nick Brueckner (Orsolon/TonyKart) completed the podium followed by Forteza, DeAngelis and d’Orlando who had a stellar comeback from the tail of the grid.
