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.
