As the karting season shifts into high gear, the anticipation continues to grow for Race One of the Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge. Set to take place at Goodwood Kartways this Saturday, the buzz in the paddock continues to grow as the final building blocks look to be in place for what is expected to be a massive turnout for Ontario’s newest Championship.
The new four race program is built around four one-day events throughout the summer as the series looks to build a platform offering well attended, competitive kart racing at an entry level cost. The event which is hosted by the Toronto Racing Association of Karters is open to ALL karters holding a valid club license at the same cost of a normal Club Race.
With recent announcements including support from Champion Spark Plugs, Ron Fellows and Briggs and Stratton Racing the inaugural championship is starting to put together a prize package that is meaningful.
“We have been working away trying to build a program that offers unprecedented value for the participants.” Stated Series Promoter Daniel Di Leo. “Our mandate from the get go has always been to keep the cost of entry controlled in hopes of making our series accessible to more karters. We believe we have achieved this and with the support from others in the karting community our prize package continues to grow.”
The Championship which will run a four round, no drop format has confirmed the following prize package:
VEGA(2 Sets of Tires) – Each race, two sets of Vega tires will be randomly drawn. One draw will include ALL four cycle Junior participants and the other will include ALL four cycle Senior Participants.
BRIGGS AND STRATTON (Engine Raffle) – Each race, one Briggs LO206 will be randomly drawn. The draw will include all Briggs and Stratton participants.
BRIGGS AND STRATTON (8 Entry Fees to next CRFKC Event) – Two “pills” will be drawn at random from each of the Briggs and Stratton classes and each racer will receive entry to the next CRFKC event.
RON FELLOWS (5 Entry Fees to ASN Canada FIA Canadian Championships) – Championship leaders at the conclusion of the first 3 Rounds of the CRFKC will be awarded Entry Fees to the National Championships at Mosport Kartways. This prize package includes practice fees, paddock fees and Race Entry Fees for Championship leaders in Micro Max, Mini-Max, Rotax Junior, Rotax Senior and Rotax DD2.
