MARCUSSON OVERCOMES ENGINE ISSUES TO WIN IN ORLANDO 🏆
Praga ambassador driver Jonathon Marcusson Motorsport has overcome numerous engine issues to win Rounds 3 & 4 of the ROTAX Karting Winter Trophy.
Jonathon & the Karting HQ team made the trip over to America to compete in the 4-round Rotax Winter Trophy. Rounds 1 & 2 were held at Piquet Race Park in Loxahatchee, FL. With limited practice after a delay in the chassis’ arrival, Jonathon quickly came to terms with the track layout. Unfortunately, he was plagued by engine issues throughout qualifying and the heats at both rounds but was able to finish strong with charging drives to P2 & fastest lap in both finals.
Rounds 3 & 4 were held at Orlando Kart Center. Unfortunately, the engine issue followed the team. Jonathon was able to take heat wins at both rounds, before superb performances in both finals saw him withstand pressure from multiple drivers to take the win for Rounds 3 & 4.
Jono finished the 4-round series 2nd on points, ruing the bad results that came from engine dramas.
Jono & the team now focus their attention towards the CITY OF SYDNEY TITLES at Sydney Premier Karting Park this weekend, competing in the TaG category & debuting the 2023 Praga Karts signature series chassis.
