The Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship ended it’s annual five day ‘Festival of Speed’ with record numbers, as 494 entries slotted into 22 classes to tackle the long and sweeping Shannonville Motorsports Park facility. The annual pilgrimage by the regions’ best kart racers was witness to some new winners and saw the return of some old favorites. The Principals, Organizers and Volunteers of the BSRKC Series are pleased to announce record numbers of entries at 494 eclipsed last years tally of 476.

“The Shannonville track is truly special and you only get to experience it once a year,” comments current Canadian National DD2 Champion Darren White. “You need to be fast right from the start and be able to dial in your kart quickly as the weather and the track change throughout the weekend.”

The weekend is designed to make the most of this special trip to the eastern side of the province with two full days for practice followed by three days of competition. Several non-points races were on tap to give drivers a primer as well as a couple of special one-off classes to give racers a unique opportunity to compete against some other drivers and take home a coveted Bear statue. One great example was Senior Medium, a Grand Nationals only class, where 47 drivers were stacked 23 rows deep to take the green flag.

Big Bear winners included Cory Cacciavillani who took home the most top prizes winning four statues, at least one each day. Brad Forbes went back-to-back, winning TaG Senior on Saturday and then Rotax Senior on Sunday. Jake Collison mastered the track taking both Masters wins, the non-pints on Saturday and the points race on Sunday. Two come back stories came from the paddock with Michael DiMeo making his 2009 karting return to take the Rotax DD2 win on Saturday and Greg Rempel, back after a long break, took his first laps of 2009 and bagged the Senior Lite win on Sunday.

“The weekend was unbelievable,” comments 15-year-old Cacciavillani after his fourth podium presentation. “JP and I really had all of our karts dialed in and made the most of every chance we had all weekend. Amazing.”

With five of the six rounds now complete drivers begin to turn their attention to point championships and title chases. Several classes are too close to call while others have seen strong performances prove solid points positions. Also on tap are several special awards including the addition of two Florida Winter Tour prizes Bill Wright, owner of Formula Kart Productions Inc., has offered the following to the BSRKC Rotax Junior and Rotax Senior Rotax Max Challenge Class Champions. Formula Kart Productions Inc. will provide the entry fees for the January 2010 round of the Formula Kart Productions Florida Winter Tour Rotax Max Challenge event weekend.

Also on tap is the driver selection to the Granja Viana 500 held each year in Brazil. Along with the two trips awarded at the end of the year, this past weekend a draw was held between the winner of TaG Junior, Austin Milwain and TaG Senior, Brad Forbes. The trip went to Milwain who will attend the event in 2010.

“The Shannonville weekend was again the crown jewel of our season,” comments series spokesman and WRKC Member Mike Preston. “The weather was great, the racing amazing and the event just could not have been any better.”
