Checkered Motorsports Launches 2017 Season at Florida Winter Tour

Round one of the Florida Winter Tour is here and Checkered Motorsports is all set up and ready for the international competition that will be present this weekend in Homestead, Florida.

Not only is this the season opener for Checkered Motorsports, but also this is sure to be a race like never before as Scuderia PCR Factory Pilot, Mattia Vita joins the lineup.  Taking second place in the ROK International Finals in 2015 and just recently competing in the 2016 ROK International Finals, Vita is all set to kick things off with a bang alongside the other six Checkered Motorsports drivers who are no strangers to the podium. The last time Bujdoso and Vita drove alongside each other was at the ROK International Finals. Bujdoso looks to return to the track more focused and ready to dominate. Mini ROK driver, Rhule has been notorious for her determination and her persistence to make it to the front. With experience in her class, Rhule is ready to shine this season. With practice and skill within different series through the entire 2016 season, Senior ROK, Raffa, is sure to make a big impact in his class during Round 1. Master ROK, Mahony, looks to start the Florida Winter Tour against a stacked field of Master Drivers. Representing the ROK Shifter Master class, Neubert faces his class for the first time in the Florida Winter Tour series but as a veteran amongst the ROK class.  He returns to the shifter class on the hunt for that top podium. Alongside Neubert is driver, Janos Eiler who will be taking the Shifter class on for the first time. Ready for this new change, Eiler has been improving more and more every day and is ready for his shifter debut.
