Beautiful weather welcomed everyone to Ocala Gran Prix for Saturday’s competition of the 2014 Florida Winter Tour. It was round three of the sixth race championship setting the official halfway point and helping display some of the championship favourites.
In the two Masters divisions Venezuelan Luis Schiavo has been nearly unbeatable so far in 2014. Aside from one race in Homestead, Schiavo has been out front and in control like the veteran he is.
In DD2 Masters, Schiavo added his second victory of the season as he drove away from Mexican Carlos Medina (CRG) and Camilo Matiz (TonyKart). Canadian Francis Mondou (KMS/Birel) was a DNF.
In his second race of the day, Schiavo continued his unbeaten streak in Max Masters by fending off a great battle from Raul Costa (TonyKart), while Brian MacHattie (OGP/TonyKart) was third. Canadians Peter Courteau (Mosport/Kosmic), David Shutiak (CRG) and Keith Miller (KMS/Birel) were sixth, ninth and tenth.
In the Micro-Max Final, it was Homestead Winner Reece Gold (TonyKart) who made a late dash to the lead en route to scoring the victory. In second it was Canadian Joshua Cunha (Goodwood/Intrepid) who had a stellar day while Matheus Morgato (Kosmic) was third. Thomas Nepveu (SH Racing/FA Kart) drove from the rear to finish 13th with Jeremy Tallon (KMS/Birel) wrapping up the Canadian contingent in eighteenth.
