Entering the final major round of the 2015 Canadian karting season, Maranello North America is proud of their accomplishments thus far. Based on their results, two team drivers have qualified for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals while the growth of the program has opened the doors to new drivers in all categories. Looking to close out the Canadian season in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec in fine fashion, six drivers will fly the red, yellow and black Maranello colours this weekend.
Recently being awarded an invitation to the Rotax Grand Finals via the Florida Winter Tour, Fred Woodley will line up in Rotax DD2 alongside teammate Ethan Simioni. The two are gunning for the podium to close out their ECKC campaigns with Woodley entering the weekend with an outside shot at the Championship.
Maranello North America is very excited welcome their newest member to the team in the likes of Micro-Max racer Marcello Paniccia. Making the transition late in the season, Paniccia looks to get up to speed immediately in Mont-Tremblant.
The lone driver in Rotax Junior this weekend will be Justin Luik. Making his first start at Mont-Tremblant, Luik is seeking his best result of the season in the hotly contested category.
Finally a pair of Briggs & Stratton racers are back under the tent this weekend as Hunter Gibson and Raul Mercier will tackle the rumbling grids on Senior and Masters respectively.
After his Canadian Championship performance in the DD2 Masters category only a few short weeks ago, Stuart Clark will be absent this weekend due to a scheduling conflict.
Following this weekends event in Mont-Tremblant the team will focus on the US Open of Las Vegas. Taking place at the RIO All Suites Hotel & Casino, Maranello North America is seeking drivers interesting in joining the team for what will be a thrilling event for Rotax Max and Stock-Moto Shifter drivers. The last time Maranello North America took to the track in Vegas, they qualified on the pole-position in an internationally stacked Rotax DD2 category and they look to do the same this coming October.
