The final day of the Homestead rounds of the 2013 Florida Winter Tour took place on Sunday at the Homestead-Miami Speedway. A gentle fog greeted competitors as they arrived at the track, predicting a very warm and humid day in south Florida.
After qualifying at the top of the charts on Friday, Oliver Askew led the way into the first corner ahead of Charlie Eastwood (TonyKart) and Daniel Formal (TonyKart). Eastwood took the lead from Askew going into the last corner of the first lap, but Askew would regain the top position only a couple corners later, pushing Eastwood wide in the process, and allowing Formal to move into second. Eastwood would get back by Formal for second as Jordan Lennox (CRG) would try to make a pass on Formal but both drivers would be passed by Nick Neri (Tony Kart) instead. At the line there would be no changes at the front as Askew would take the Pre final win ahead of Eastwood, Neri, Lennox, and Formal.
Charlie Eastwood took the lead from the outside row to start the Sunday Final. Neri would then get by the reigning Rotax Grand Finals Champion on the second lap with Formal close behind the two drivers in fourth. Three laps later Neri would be passed by both Eastwood and Formal as they would try to catch up to Askew in the lead. Past halfway Lennox would take his CRG to the fourth position getting by Neri. At this point the battle at the front would be static as Askew would keep his distance back to Eastwood, and take the victory with Formal, Lennox, and Neri completing the top five.
The third and final round of the Florida Winter Tour will take place at the Ocala Gran Prix karting facility in Ocala, Florida. The tight and twisty facility in north Florida will see the Rotax racers complete their final two race days to determine each class champion on March 22-24.
