  • Lorenzo MandarinoPSerra Racing continued it's impressive winning streak taking top spot on the podium with Lorenzo Mandarino in Senior Rotax completing his third straight win. Joining Mandarino on the podium was the newest team member Michael Vincec who took third spot, his second podium in just two starts with the Birel team. PSerra Racing fielded a total of five drivers in 3 classes with solid finishes adding to an impressive debut season.

    "We really had to fight hard for this one as the weather was a big factor and having no prefinal meant the setup for the final was critical," comments Peter Serravalle, team principal of Pserra Racing. "Having two drivers on the podium in Rotax Senior for a second straight BSRKC event is really amazing."

    In Rotax Senior three drivers took to the track representing the red machine. Top qualifying honors went to Vincec taking third spot while Mandarino ended a disappointing seventh. Along with Mandarino and Vincec was fellow teammate Michael Lombardi who was looking to make some moves in the standings. Michael VincecA problem in qualifying left him with some work to do in the final. In the final Mandarino would charge forward quickly taking P3 by lap four and then P1 by lap eight. From there Mandarino would battle the leaders for the win. Vincec would work traffic to move forward quickly running laps 4 tenths quicker than the leaders as he battled through difficult traffic. By the drop of the checkered flag Vincec would take the third step of podium. Lombardi charged forward early but a mechanical issue ended his day on lap eight.

    "I didn't get what I wanted out of kart in qualifying and made some changes for the final," states Mandarino. "With no prefinal we needed to get it right and the Birel worked amazing, giving us what we needed to take our third straight win."

    In Rotax Junior Austin Milwain would qualify in the fourth spot and line up outside row two for the final. Running in the fourth position at half distance, Milwain would be pushed wide going into turn one and regain the track in the 6th position. Post race penalties would move Milwain back into the top five with a 5th place finish and solid championship points.

    In Rotax DD2 Cory Luciano would qualify inside top ten and look to improve in the final. Working traffic and battling early, Luciano would hold his starting position and finish tenth in the final tally.

    Austin MilwainThe Pserra Racing team including all drivers, mechanics and coaches are quickly developing a reputation as the team to beat week in and week out.
