  • PSERRA RACING FLORIDA WINTER TOUR PREVIEW
  • January 13, 2010
  • Pserra Racing, entering it's second season as a Birel dealer, will begin the 2010 racing campaign in the highly competitive Florida Winter Tour Rotax Max weekend. FWT, the largest Rotax Max series in the world, brings in a host of top international talent including several teams from Canada looking to get a head start on the season. Pserra Racing has been in the sunshine state testing and preparing for several days and looks forward to getting the racing season underway. Pserra will run several drivers in different classes at the FWT all supported by the Pserra Racing Birel trackside support program and using Pserra Racing built Rotax power.

    "It feels like we just left Las Vegas, but I can't wait to get going on 2010," comments Peter Serravalle, owner of Pserra Racing. "We are very excited about the 2010 season and we are looking to build on our strong results in 2009. The FWT will be a good place to get things started."

    The team will be lead by current factory-supported driver Michael Vincec. The well-known and well-respected Senior Champion joined Pserra Racing Birel in 2009 and saw immediate success in regional action. Vincec will run in two classes at the FWT, Senior Max and DD2 Max with the help of tuner Kevin Loster. Vincec is up for the challenge and is focused on grabbing an early invitation to the Rotax Grand Finals for Team Canada. Toronto native James Vance makes the move to Birel for 2010 season. Vance will compete in Rotax Max Masters with tuning support from veteran wrench and engine builder Wrex Roth. The 6' 4" tall driver will run under the Masters class rules and looks to build on last seasons experience in the Rotax DD2 class.

    The youngest driver with Pserra Racing, making his official karting debut, is Antonio Serravalle who will compete in the ultra quick Micro Max class. Antonio will turn eight years old this year and is the youngest driver competing at the FWT. The grade-two student has been testing and racing at home for the past season in preparation for his kart racing debut. Also in Micro Max will be Mitchell Boyd, making the switch to a red rocket for the 2010 season. Boyd is no stranger to FWT action and will be entering his third season of cadet competition. The Ontario native is building on a strong 2009 season and looks to use the FWT to begin his break out season.

    The Pserra Racing will expand significantly for round two of the FWT being at Palm Beach International Raceway in mid February. In Junior Rotax, Spencer Todd will hit the track aboard a Birel chassis. A conflict with exams is keeping Todd in the frozen north and out of the kart seat. The Ontario native completed his first race start under the Pserra Racing Birel banner at the SKUSA SuperNationals in Las Vegas this past November. In Micro Max, Tyler Ripani of Oakville, Ontario will head south for winter racing. Ripani made his first Pserra Racing start at the 2009 Canadian Nationals and drove to an amazing podium finish in the Micro Max class. In Senior Max, Christopher Enrst will again travel with Pserra Racing following a solid run at the 2009 SuperNationals. Finally, in the DD2 category, Cory Luciano will make his first start in 2010. Luciano campaigned the entire 2009 BSRKC season with Pserra Racing in the DD2 class.

    "I am sure we can do very well with our line up at in the Rotax classes," smiles Serravalle from his southern base in Naples, Florida. "Our Rotax engine program was amazing in 2009 and should be even better in 2010. The engine department has been working hard and I know we have very good horsepower."

    The engine department did shine in Rotax in 2009 taking several titles along the way. In Junior Rotax, Pserra Racing power helped Garett Grist take the 2009 Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship title as well as the Canadian National Championship. Senior driver Lorenzo Mandarino used his Pserra racing engine to take the BSRKC Senior Rotax title. Darren, two-time member of Team Canada, also used Pserra Racing engines to take the BSRKC DD2 title in solid fashion.

    Pserra Racing will soon announce several new programs and a full range of Arrive and Drive opportunities for the 2010 season. Interested drivers from across North America are encouraged to contact Pserra Racing for more details. The Pserra Racing program will be running in all the major North American series and national championships.
