September 22, 2005, INNISFIL, ONTARIO – For the second consecutive season, Innisfil Indy will host the final round of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels. Of the nine classes this year, only one has been decided heading into the final round.

In the headline Formula Senior class, Daniel Morad holds a slim lead over long time rival Robert Wickens. These are the only two in the championship hunt in this class.Marco Di Leo has a 94 point lead (with a possible 105 points up for grabs) over Eric Gerrits in Rotax Max. This should be enough unless Di Leo has a terrible weekend. Gerrits however will have to keep an eye on Devin Cunningham, as he is only 25 points behind Gerrits.

In World Formula, Adriano Billota who is at his home track this weekend has a good lead over Corey Usher and Wilson Tessari Neto, while in Canada Senior, Aaron de Heus leads Pearce Herder and Darryl Timmers.

One of the closest battles is in Formula Junior, where Kyle Marcelli has a two point lead over teammate Maxime Pelletier. Kenny Riedmann is third, some 51 points behind Marcelli.

In Rotax Junior, Michael Vincec leads Kevin Monteith by 160 points, which makes him the only driver to seal a championship before this weekend. Monteith will battle it out win Maxime Pelletier and Brad Forbes for second.

In World Formula Jr. Jeff May leads Joshua Korenyi and Wes Calaguiro. Only 72 points separates the top three. Michael Di Meo, Greg Rempel and Justin Holtom will do battle for top spot in Canada Junior Heavy. Only 48 points separate the top three. In Canada Junior light, Reid Arnold is in much the same position as Di Meo. He holds a slim lead over Jonathon Tredwell and Andrew Waring going into Innisfil.

There is also the subject of the Evaluation Day, which will be held on October 7. Drivers will all be looking for a good weekend to convince officials to give them a shot at a coveted Team Ultra 94 drive in 2006.
