  • Pserra Racing has been hard at work both on and off the track over the last few weeks as the Ontario karting season hits full stride. Since beginning the 2009 Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship, the team has been building momentum, taking wins and signing new drivers. Also, the team is taking the lid off a new program to take a strong run at the Canadian Nationals slated for early August at Goodwood Kartways.

    "We are happy with the start of the 2009 season," comments team owner Peter Serravalle. "The team has been building, and we see some real good progress in the chassis, the engines and the drivers. All the pieces are coming together."

    In round two action of the BSRKC, team leader Lorenzo Mandarino was able to post a huge victory in the Rotax Senior classification. In round one, a failed component ended a strong start to the season. Mandarino and the entire team will be looking for big things as they head into round three at the Mosport Karting Academy track, the mid-point of the BSRKC season.

    "We were strong enough to win in round one and proved that in round two taking the win," smiles Rotax Senior driver Lorenzo Mandarino. "The next round at Mosport will be good for us, and we look to move forward in the points standings."

    Joining the Pserra crew for round three will be multi-time national champion Michael Vincec. It was announced just last week that Vincec will be joining the red machine to compete both here in Canada and in Europe. Vincec joins Mandarino and a strong team including:

    • Michael Lombardi - Rotax Senior
    • Cory Luciano - Rotax DD2
    • Austin Milwain - Rotax Junior
    • Connor Nevins - Rotax Junior
    • Raimond Rainville - Rotax Junior
    • Rui Texiara - Rotax Junior

    Other Birel drivers have had some strong success in four-cycle competition including Cory Cacciavillani and Grant Quinlan. Pserra Racing has all four-cycle Birel chassis components in stock, and they are working with the Birel factory to reproduce AM29 specifically for the four-cycle racing here in Canada. Also Pserra Racing has the AR28z adjustable wheelbase in stock for smaller two-stroke drivers looking for that edge.

    In an effort to build on the strong start to the 2009 season, Pserra Racing is offering a special package for the 2009 Canadian Nationals. Any new drivers that switch to the potent Birel chassis and race at the Canadian Nationals will receive a MyChron 4 with their kart purchase. This combines start of art chassis technology with leading edge data acquisition.

    "Our shop is in Stouffville just minutes from the Goodwood track so we really sort of see the Nationals as a home track event," states Serravalle. "We are serious about a National Championship are we are looking for drivers who are serious about winning."
