It’s disturbing that I feel the need to post this, but I’ve now received three emails asking me if this is true.
Last year someone at the Supernats was telling anyone who would listen that FWT canceled the shifter classes. I didn’t respond then and it cost me.
So now that it’s happening again I’m going to respond. It’s sad that someone feels the need to do this, but it’s being done for the second time! THIS IS NOT TRUE. FWT always has and always will offer shifter kart classes.
FWT started as a shifter series, and I’m still a HUGE fan of shifter kart racing. Last year we had no shifter participation after the first rounds, and therefore none were racing. I later found out this rumor is why many didn’t register. I’m happy to report that even without the shifters the FWT Formula Kart Racing weekend grew 16% in 2013. TaG Cadet averaged 41 entries per event and both TaG Senior and Junior averaged high 20′s. I expect that growth to continue in 2014. But back to Shifter Karts.
2014 FWT is offering four Shifter Kart classes during the Formula Kart Racing events, along with the normal TaG lineup, and a Briggs LO206 program. Shifter Classes offered are: Stock Moto / 385lb / 15 and up (Basically SKUSA S1-2) Junior Shifter / 340lb / 12-15 (Basically SKUSA S5) Open Shifter / KZ, Open Moto C & F / 385lb / 15 and up Masters Shifter / KZ, Open Moto C & F / 405lb / 30 and up All classes run MG Yellow 4.6/7.1 OGP, Homestead Karting, International Racing USA and OKC have all committed to run the classes.
I already have entries from the U.S, Canada and Brasil. I expect a solid turnout in each category. Discounted online registration is available now. If you register for all three event weekends before December 31 you get $100 off your entry costs. I am also offering 6-months-same-as-cash through the Pay Pal “Bill me Later” program, for those of you who are on a tight budget or would like to have some presents under the tree and still race without sweating how to do it.
To register, or for detailed information about any FWT classes, see www.floridawintertour.com . Of course I am always available at email@example.com Bill Wright / Exclusive owner and promoter of The FWT
"Banquet to take place in coming weeks"
Innisfil, Ontario - October 23, 2013 - With the Canadian karting season coming to a close, the Northern Ontario Karting Championship (NOKC) recently closed out its season and is now set to crown series champions. The year-end banquet is now only a few weeks away, as series champions and participants will be honoured in light of a successful 2013 program.
The headline NOKC Senior 125cc Shifter division was highlighted by Zachary Shearer, as he went on to garner the most series points to attain the championship. Awarded a trip to the Superkarts! USA (SKUSA) SuperNationals to compete in the KZ2 category as one of his prizes, Shearer does not meet the SKUSA age requirements, and therefore will not be able to attend. Trading his fully funded SuperNats entry in, Shearer will be awarded a $5000.00 cheque at the end of the year award banquet. Nico Fattore and Jimmy Lo would come home second and third in the championship battle.
"It is a shame that Zach is too young to compete in the KZ2 class in Las Vegas," explained Tony Launi. "He is a good, young driver and it would have been a great experience for him to race at the SuperNats."
The NOKC Rotax Mini Max title would be won by Simone Masini with brother Lucio coming home second. The duo worked together all season long and proved to be successful when it counted. Eamon Lowe would be the best of the rest and scored the third position in the championship battle.
The Junior Rotax class would be a hotly contested one all season long but when the final checkered flag had flown, Dylan Brady would be the victor. With Brady confirmed as the series champion, Giancarlo Filicetti would finish ahead of Austin Riley as they would end the season second and third.
Stefan Semeraro would be the driver to beat in the Rotax Senior division as he would go on to secure the series championship. Marcus Iozzo and Andrea Masini would battle hard throughout 2013 and end the season strong securing the second and third positions in the NOKC championship chase.
The Innisfil Kart Club and NOKC championship awards banquet will take place Saturday, November 9, 2013. Please do not forget to pick up your banquet tickets as time is running out. The IKC/NOKC general meeting will take place Sunday, December 1, 2013 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Grange Hall in Innisfil, Ontario. Everyone is welcome to attend the general meeting.
Series officials from the Innisfil Kart Club and Northern Ontario Karting Championship would like to congratulate all class champions and event winners in 2013. Officials would also like to send an extra special thank you to all series and event sponsors and volunteers, as well as all the participants of the 2013 programs for yet another successful season.
The NOKC is a regional qualifying series for the Rotax Max Challenge and is operated by the Innisfil Kart Club. For more information on the NOKC, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 905-775-4686

Heading into the latter stages of the Canadian karting season, Innisfil Kart Club will continue their popular club program with a night race on the evening of Saturday, September 7. With the event taking place at the tight and twisty Innisfil Indy facility, local club members will be joined by members from the Toronto Kart Club as the two programs will run in conjunction with one another under the lights.
“We are very excited for our upcoming night race,” explained Rose Launi of Innisfil Indy. “With school back in progress that week, it will be a welcome break from the first week of classes for some fun, yet competitive racing under cooler temperatures. Also, with the addition of members from the Toronto Kart Club, the wheel-to-wheel racing is sure to be exciting.”
As the 12th event on the 2013 Innisfil Kart Club schedule, this will be the one and only night race of the season. Registration for the event will open at 3:00pm with practice for all classes starting shortly after at 4:00pm. The evening will also see Innisfil Indy and the Innisfil Kart Club host a BBQ with corn for all the competitors that come out to the event.
Though this is a combined event for Innisfil Kart Club and Toronto Kart Club members, series officials are inviting anyone from Ontario’s ASN Canada affiliated clubs to come and join them for the special night race. Innisfil Kart Club will offer two-stroke and four-stroke classes including Briggs and Stratton Junior, Senior and Masters and welcomes competitors for a night of fun.
Saturday September 7th is InnisfilKartClub's NIGHT RACE
