Full House for Prime Powerteam at MRFKC Opener

Hamilton’s Prime Powerteam has brought two dozen team members to the opening round of the Motomaster Ron Fellows Karting Championship being held this weekend at the Mosport Karting Centre.

The massive BirelART race team will do battle in every category except one, including a team-high eight in Rok Junior.

Stacked full of talent, wins are on the agenda this weekend while two Prime drivers look to defend their championship title as Patrick Woods-Toth seeks yet another ROK Senior title while Jordan Prior is ready to defend the Briggs Senior belt.

The roster is very similar to years past, with a few drivers changing categories.

The Rok Senior squad remains unchanged from a year ago with Woods-Toth leading Marco Filice, Cole Hooton and Matthew DeMarinas.

New to ROK Junior are Jonathan Petrone and Matisse Constantini, who have stepped up from Briggs, while Pearce Wade advances from Mini Rok. Quebec’s Timothe Pernod will join Prime from the Ben Cooper Racing program as the two race teams continue to work together. They will join regulars Frankie Esposito, Caleb Campbell, Nolan Hofrichter and Anthony Raducanoiu.

Jordan Prior and Jon Treadwell will pull double-duty this weekend, as they add the newly formed Briggs Senior Heavy division to their regular duties in Briggs Senior. David Barnes and Logan Pacza will join the pair in Briggs Senior, making it a solid foursome of proven race winners while Logan Ferguson returns to the team after a year off and will compete in Heavy.

Both Jordan West and Mitchell Morrow scored their first major victories last season and they are back in Briggs Junior with their eyes on the championship. Jackson Morley and Matthew Roach in Mini ROK and Rich Folino in Briggs Masters are Rounding out the team.

Optimistic ahead of the first major race of the season, Prime Powerteam team manager Kenneth O’Keefe feels his drivers are ready to score some great results right out of the gate.

“We’ve had a good few weeks getting almost everyone on track either here at Mosport or at Hamilton to get up to speed and now we’re ready to attack the podium. Our drivers showed great speed over the winter down in Florida and that gives us a lot of confidence in our BirelART product for the 2022 Canadian season.”

The team will test from Wednesday to Friday before two full days of competition on the weekend.
