Series News: Florida Karting Championship Series Looks Forward to Final Event of 2013

Competitors will travel to 103rd Street Motorsports Complex for final round

Florida Karting Championship Series logoAfter a season of highs and lows and some great racing action, the Florida Karting Championship Series (FKCS) will now head to the final round on their 2013 calendar. Taking place at the ultra fast 103rd Street Motorsports Complex in Jacksonville, Florida on the August 23-25 weekend, series competitors will have their final opportunities to stand atop the FKCS podium and champions will be crowned upon the event conclusion.

“It has been another great season for the FKCS program,” expressed series President Eddie Gennaro. “We have shown growth in several classes as well as had competitors from up and down the eastern half of the United States and Canada. The introduction of the Rok USA program has been extremely successful and we have had higher entry numbers than in previous years. The last round will be no different and we are excited to end the year on a high note.”

Jacksonville offers a unique layout for teams and drivers as a long 1000-foot straightaway provides the opportunity for drafting maneuvers and high speeds. While the infield is not as technical as some other facilities, it is still very important to get through quickly to have the best shot at a victory.

With the conclusion of the series fast approaching, information on the final round can be found below.
