MIKA Announces New Spec Fuel Station

The Mosport International Karting Association has announced it has switched the spec fuel station for the club.

Due to research done by the MIKA 2 cycle tech inspector Paul Hunter on the effects of ethanol on 2 stroke engines, effective immediately, MIKA will be changing their spec fuel station from the Petro Canada at Waverly Rd and 401 to the Esso on the 35/115 southbound just south of the hwy 35 exit.

Mr. Hunter has found detrimental effects that ethanol was having on 2 cycle engines and notified MIKA immediately. After consulting with 4 cycle tech inspector Bruce Fowler, the decision to switch spec fuel station was made in the best interest of the karters.

All Mosport International Karting Association classes in 4 cycle and rotax will be running Esso 91 fuel. The change in spec fuel will also aid MIKA when they have combined races with the Toronto Racing Association of Karters, because they also use Esso fuels. In addition, the new spec fuel station is within 10 minutes of the track.

Competitors are encouraged to pass on the information ahead of the upcoming Race 8 at the Mosport International Karting Association in order to prevent any technical disqualifications.
