Josh Adams at FWT

March 24, 2011

Canadian Josh Adams earned some impressive results in the final rounds of the Formula Kart Florida Winter Tour. Competing in the competitive KZ2 class, Adams was seen on the third step of podium twice during the weekend at the Ocala Gran Prix facility in Ocala, Florida.

After a DNF and a sixth place finish in the opening rounds in Orlando, the Guelph, Ontario resident would sit out the second round of the Tour. Hoping to improve upon his Orlando results, Adams would not disappoint. Running fast all weekend and often being seen among the top three on the time sheets, the GP pilot would manage two top-ten qualifying positions, clocking the sixth fastest time for both sessions. Prefinal action would see Adams score the fifth position on Saturday and sixth on Sunday. Turing up the wick for the finals, Adams would steer his Innisfil Indy tuned GP chassis to two podium finishes.

With his strong results in Ocala, Adams was able to earn the fifth place in the overall KZ2 class championship. As the winter series has now wrapped, Adams will now turn focus to his Canadian karting campaign. The Zaino.ca / MG Tires sponsored driver will see action in the Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship as well as the international WSK Series event in Mont Tremblant July 7-11. 2011 will also see Adams compete in the New Jersey Sprint Series, a five event series on the US east coast.
