The 2014 Florida Winter Tour is on track in Ocala, Florida, USA for the second round of the three-stop championship. After success a month ago in Homestead, the series shifted north to a much cooler Ocala Gran Prix. Beautiful sunny skies helped warm up a very chilly morning for Fridays qualifying sessions, setting the tone for the remainder of the weekend.
In Rotax Senior, rookie Kyle Kirkwood (OGP/TonyKart) qualified on the pole ahead of teammate Oliver Askew (OGP/TonyKart) and Canadian Zachary Claman Demelo (Goodwood/Intrepid) for both Saturday and Sunday Qualifying sessions. UK drivers Luke Varley (Anderson/Birel) and Jordan Lennox (PSL/CRG) will start fourth and fifth on Saturday, while Varley and Jamaican Thomas Issa (J3 Competition/TonyKart) compete the top-five for Sunday.
For Saturday, Canadians holds positions thirteen through seventeen with Steven Szigeti (SH Racing/FA Kart) followed by Ben Cooper (KMS/Birel), Zacharie Scalzo (KGK/TonyKart), Johnny Flute (Mosport/Kosmic) and Christophe Paquet. Alessandro Bramucci (PSL/CRG) was 28th.
On Sunday, Szigeti and Cooper are 13th and 14th while Scalzo was 19th.
