Sanzaru Games Gearing Up for Race #3
Senior Rotax to be the GoPro Feature class
Race #3 of the Sanzaru Games Karting Championships will headline the Senior Rotax as the GoPro Feature class on the Pro National track layout. Zach Pettinicchi and Enzo Prevost will continue their duel for the top in this class. Second year driver Kyle Loh is close to the two leaders and will put the pressure on Zach and Enzo if they were to fault. These three should put on a great show in the GoPro feature.
The class with solid growth for 2016 is the Micro Max class with several new drivers new to the series. The first two races brought out 12 and 11 drivers in each event. Many of these drivers have come out of Kid Karts and that experience has made for a good transition into Rotax’s first level junior class. Three veteran drivers are leading the way, Sebastiaan Mulder, Christian Legaspi and Skyler Geczi, but there are plenty of newer drivers that have should that they plan to be up front soon including Adam Freire, Ayrton Tyler, Ryan Persing. Andrew Rivera and Gia Lintz.
Kid Karts will again be featured on the Saturday portion of the race weekend.
