Florida Winter Tour registration open February 17th 2014! THE WINTER PLACE TO BE.

Florida Winter Tour registration opens February 17th, 2014! The LCQ racing team is preparing for Round 3 of the Florida Winter Tour (FWT) in Orlando, Florida. LCQ’s last appearance at the FWT was in 2010 when LCQ’s driver Robby Mott tied for the Championship in the very competitive Rotax Masters Class. So far, our drivers for this round of the FWT will be William Lalonde and Eric Lefevre. Returning to karting after a two-year break, William will be racing a Margay 4.11 in the Senior L206 Class. William has been to several FWT races and is hoping for some good results!  Eric will also be racing a Brava 4.11, competing in the Masters LO 206 Class. Last year was Eric’s rookie season, competing in the OGKC, and he is eagerly anticipating his race debut at the FWT! For those racers interested in competing at the FWT, Le Circuit Quyon is offering equipment transportation to and from Orlando, Florida for the 3rd round of the FWT. Cost will be $300.00 per kart and associated gear. Anyone interested in a spot under the tent including transportation and catered lunch, cost will be $625.00. Anyone interested in a full ‘arrive and drive’ experience, packages begin at $750.00. Drop me a line at 613-223-2541 or email paul@lecircuitquyon.com
