Please feel free to contact us at or Rosa/Tony @ 905-775-4686 One-on-One: Tony Launi of Northern Ontario Karting Championship By Jeff Grist for In the winter most of us think skiing as we are heading up Highway 400. A good friend once said: “You know you are racing in Canada when you pass ski hills on the way to the track.” When you do get to Innisfil Indy, just a few minutes off the highway, you enter a place where the karting is great and family fun is on top of the menu. And speaking of menu, we can’t talk about Innisfil Indy without wetting everyone’s appetite by mentioning Rose Launi’s famous veal sandwich. Always a hit among all visitors, it may be just as popular as the racing on the smooth 10-turn kart track that is home to the Innisfil Kart Club. In a 2008 article I wrote (and what writer isn’t their own biggest fan), “With over 35 years of history packed into the rolling paddock, this little track has produced many great races, racers and most of all memories. The heart and soul of the Launi Family is poured into every corner of the facility where family patriarch Tony can be found making sure everything is just right. With over 37 years of karting experience in Canada, Launi has seen, experienced and been part of the karting community we call home today. It’s easy to forget that before big trailers and trick sticker kits there was a basic passion for racing. A passion that pushed blood through the veins of those caught up in the excitement of speed and competition that could be captured in the back of your pick up truck.” Never one to stand still, facility owner Tony Launi has some big plans for 2011 with the creation of the new Northern Ontario Karting Championship. Hosted by Innisfil Kart Club, the NOKC 2011 events are Rotax Max Challenge qualifying events and will run as part of the Innisfil Kart Club schedule. Drivers wishing to qualify for the ASN Canada FIA Canadian Nationals must compete in at least three qualifying events before August 1, 2011. The NOKC events will compete under RMC regulations, and all NOKC events will offer the full compliment of Rotax classes including Rotax DD2, Rotax Senior, Rotax Junior, Rotax Mini Max and Rotax Micro Max.

We took some time to connect with Tony and here is what he had to say. Tony, thanks for taking some time to chat with our readers. There is lots of snow on the ground still, but some big are things going on for 2011. What is new at the track? Tony Launi: We spent the big money last year. The entire track has been paved and all the work is done. The curbing is perfect. How come you have not come by to see the track? Yes, my bad. I will definitely be there this summer to check things out. You are launching a new series this season, The Northern Ontario Karting Championship. Why should I want to race that? TL: It’s going to be a great series because it comes from the club. We are a Rotax Max qualifier so you can get to the Nationals from here. And we have some great prizes. Everyone loves prizes. Tell me about these prizes. TL: We sweetened the pot by adding to the two previously announced Bridgestone Cup prizes. One senior and one junior will be awarded a free ride courtesy of Innisfil Indy as part of the NOKC champion's awards. We want to be able to offer one senior and one junior of the NOKC a substantial prize for winning the series. These two drivers will join the two drivers that win the prizes with the Innisfil Kart Club. So let me get this straight. Innisfil Indy is sending four drivers to the Bridgestone Cup. Where is the race taking place in 2011 and when? TL: October 21 to 23 in South Garda, Italy. Not too far from Milano. Joe went there last year. Really nice. Now it’s part of the Innisfil Kart Club schedule. How will that work? TL: We are making six of the club weekends NOKC races with four of them before August. This will give drivers a chance to get the three races they need to qualify for the Nationals. Many drivers don’t realize that your three races have to be from the same series. You can’t cherry pick among the series for your three qualifying races. And we are doing a couple of races at Mosport and one at Goodwood. As part of the club I can’t imagine it will be all Rotax. TL: No, we will have some four-cycle classes as well. Now you have put up some amazing prizes for the Rotax winners, what about the hard working four-cycle guys. TL: I am working on some stuff right now. I am looking to make a BIG prize available to the four-cycle guys. We will have cash prizes for four-cycle every week for them. I think the racing is going to be great. Now I’m from the Niagara area and don’t usually think of the Barrie area as Northern Ontario. The folks in Thunder Bay might have something to say about that. Anyway, why start another karting series here in Ontario? TL: Not all the people can afford to go to the big races. We have something that is based on the club. It will be good for some of the less experienced drivers. And it will be cheaper than the big races. This way everyone can be able to go to the Nationals in Mont Tremblant. We can’t chat without talking about Frankie. Everyone wants to know what he is up to. As one of the most exciting and talented drivers of the past decade he is definitely the fan favorite. TL: Right now Frankie is not racing. He is working with a number of our drivers here and will help with coaching and tuning. But it’s Frankie so you never know. One weekend he just may end up in the kart. Do journalists get a special discount on veal sandwiches? TL: No. You pay extra. Thanks for taking some time to chat with us about the upcoming season. The new series sounds great. Best of luck. TL: No problem. And I better see you here this summer.
