Official day two of the 2012 Rotax Pan American Championship Finals held at The Track at Centennial in Colorado, USA saw each class have three important rounds of heat races to determine the starting order for Sunday’s events. It was another beautiful day at Centennial as blue skies and a nice breeze kept the conditions near perfect.
Collin Daley (CRG/Jamaica) bounced back from a rough start in heat 1 to finish second, before winning heats 2 and 3 in fine fashion. Fritz Leesmann (CRG/USA) was the benefactor in the first heat, and although he tried hard in heats two and three, just didn’t have enough to get Daley and will start tomorrows pre final from outside the front row. Three third place runs for Daniel Burkett (LH Kart/Canada) will have him start on the inside of row two, while Brendon Bain (Maranello/Canada) and Tyler McEwen (CRG/Canada) round out the top five starting spots. A rough day for Alessandro Bizzotto (CRG/Canada) forces him to start tomorrows pre final from the rear of the grid.
In DD2 Masters, Ariel Castro (AM Kart/USA) had a perfect day, simply driving away with all three heat races, giving him the pole position for Sunday’s pre final. Scott Falcone (Arrow/USA) will start alongside Castro as he was able to muscle up two thirds and a second while Mike Jones (Sodi-Kart/USA) just narrowly edged Jim Carey (Zanardi/USA) and Johnannes Olinto (Intrepid/Venezuela) for third.
Sunday will see drivers hit The Track at Centennial for a pre-final and a winner take all final race in the afternoon.
