The organizers of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship, Briggs and Stratton Racing and Bill Wright of the Florida Winter Tour have reached an agreement to provide each ECKC Briggs class champion with a fully paid entry at the final weekend of the 2015 Florida Winter Tour Formula Kart Racing Championship.
The class champions of the Briggs Jr, Sr, and Masters category will receive entry to both race days, driver and mechanic credentials for both race days, and a set of spec slick race tires. David Klaus, Director of Briggs and Stratton Racing and Bill Wright, owner of Formula Kart Productions, have come together to provide this opportunity to each of the “LO206” powered ECKC class champions.
BRIGGS AND STRATTON
Briggs and Stratton is quickly building a name for itself in the Canadian karting industry. Providing low-cost, low maintenance and ultra competitive racing, Briggs and Stratton is quickly gaining popularity among budget-conscious drivers wishing to compete at a nationally ranked event. The LO206 racing categories are known for providing spectacularly close racing for both the fans and the competing drivers.

FLORIDA WINTER TOUR
The Florida Winter Tour
(FWT) is one of the world’s oldest, largest and most geographically diverse kart racing programs. The 2014 FWT featured more than 340 drivers from 22 countries and all six karting continents, including multiple reigning and former Rotax and CIK World Champions and professional drivers from F1, Indy Car, Nascar, Tudor Sports Car and many other pro car series.

Collectively, Bill Wright and David Klaus and ECKC hope to build interest in the LO206 classes, as they provide a low-cost alternative, while allowing competitors to compete at internationally recognized events. With this, the LO206 category is sure to draw heavy interest in the upcoming karting season.
