Series News: Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge, Race 2

The second event of the Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge was contested at Mosport Kartways Sunday and without a doubt the series has put itself on the karting map! While national organizations continue to face challenges, this new inter-club Regional championship is definitely hitting its marks. Based heavily on the Briggs & Stratton four-cycle program that is common among kart clubs in Ontario, the second event saw 172 karters converge on Mosport, with 116 spread across four sessions: 26 in Novice/Junior Light, 26 in Junior Heavy, 37 in Senior and 27 in Masters!

“The Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge is certainly headed in a positive direction and meeting a need we identified in Ontario karting,” said organizer Daniel Di Leo. “Progressing from Arrive-and-Drive into an Ontario kart club is a very manageable move, but having to go from there to the National or International level as a next step can be quite intimidating for some drivers and families. Now, with a small Regional schedule that brings kart clubs together, drivers and families can bridge the gap, and experience another level of competition before beginning to race in other provinces or even other countries. We’re really happy with the support so far, and truly think big things are to come going forward.”

Four single-day events are what the Challenge offers, each with the same entry fee as a normal club race for the host venue. Champion Spark Plugs signed on quickly as a presenting sponsor, along with series’ namesake Ron Fellows, Briggs & Stratton Racing and Vega tires. And the prize package is not centred on just winners and podium finishers, but on nearly everyone in attendance.

“Those were the other big factors we wanted to focus on with the Challenge series,” continued Di Leo. “We want everyone to have a great time at these four events, and while being exposed to that ‘next level’ of karting without breaking the bank, participants also have the opportunity to win great prizes just for coming out to race. Briggs & Stratton supports random draws at each event that see two drivers from each of its classes awarded free entry into the next event, and also one driver awarded a new Briggs & Stratton LO206 engine. Vega tires awards free tires in random draws at each event, and Champion helps keep the cost for competitors down through its sponsorship and provides great swag: hats, shirts, decals… it’s creating a great atmosphere to go racing in. We hope all the club racers come and check it out!”

The Champion Ron Fellows Karting Challenge continues with event three on Sunday, August 16th, when it returns to Mosport Kartways. Its final event for 2015 is Saturday, September 12th, run as part of the famed Toronto Racing Association of Karters night race under the lights at Goodwood Kartways. Podium finishers and award winners from race two can be seen below.
