Arrow Racing Karts continued their recent hot streak in the USA, winning the prestigious 2011 Florida Winter Tour Championship in the star studded Rotax Senior class.
Competing against the best drivers from many countries, Hellman sponsored Arrow driver David Sera was amongst the front runners at every round and piloted his Arrow X1-E chassis to a double podium at the final round at Ocala Raceway, Ocala, on March 26th and 27th.
Sera entered the event with the championship lead and although he took a conservative approach to the weekend he still scored a double podium with a third place on Saturday and a second place on Sunday to secure the title. Sera’s teammate for the weekend was young gun Sam Beasley, who was recently voted the EKarting News Rising Star for 2010. The 16 year old from Mid-Ohio took a little longer to come to terms with the X1-E, getting his first taste of the kart on Thursday morning. After qualifying outside the top ten for both days racing, Beasley made strong improvements every time in the kart to round out the weekend with two sixth place finishes. ‘We learnt a lot about the kart each session we were on track. The chassis responded very well, and I think if we had more time to test we could have also been challenging for the podium.’ said Beasley.
Scott Falcone also greeted the podium at the final round of the Winter Tour aboard his Arrow, grabbing third spot in the Rotax Masters category. Having won the opening round of the championship, the Colorado resident showed consistency throughout the series eventually finishing fourth in the overall standings.
