    Canadian Formula 1200 two time Champion

    *For Immidate Release*
    The Formula 1200 Championship had a very eventful season. Racing in Shannonville, Mosport International Raceway and Calabogie, 23 Drivers competed with us in the 2009 season. We saw a mix of sunshine, rain, fog, wind, and one this season even hail. It was not only a dramatic but yet another close season.
    Michael Iamundi dominated season, winning eleven races, with a couple of mechanical problems. Michael Iamundi won the 2009 season with a tight finish in the drivers points yet again. Andrew McMurrary was a podium regular and top 5 finisher. Andrew took some amazing onboard video footage as well, showing drivers how it is import to draft and finished the season in second place. Eric Barret was the new 2009 Vallis Cup winner for this year, also winning 4 of the 18 races of the season Eric Barret finished the season on a high note with third overall.
    TLM Racing driver Keenan Harris will be the 2009 Rookie of the Year. Coming into Formula 1200 after karting Keenan has performed outstanding, fourth overall was his overall standing. Phil Wang had a few podium spots, joining team-mate Michael Iamundi in Calabogie, and Vallis Cup weekend, fifth overall the season. Sergio Pasian was another Rookie who did a good job through the season with podiums and regular top five finishes. Sergio Pasion was sixth overall in is first racing season for Formula 1200
    Robert Tronchi had a tough year, but did a good job trying to battle it out for top five finishes. Unfortunately Robert was sick the last weekend and couldn’t make it for the final race weekend. Robert Trochi was seventh overall. Bill Mitchell did an outstanding job with racing again this season with his newly developed BRD car. One of the longest running drivers in the sport Bill managed a respectable eight overall. Andre Bonaldo the third rookie for this season was 9th overall. Coming from karting as well, he quickly moved up the Formula 1200 grid. Taylor Near of TLM racing finished off the top ten in points. Having a few scary moments he still was managed to come back in finish the season in tenth.
    Carlo Triolo was another rookie of TLM racing and Formula 1200. Having close battles with Kyle Kosir and Eugene Cartini he managed a respectable eleventh overall. Michael Rogers was a part of the action this season a couple of podium sports put him twelfth this season. Eugene Cartini beat out his team-mate Kyle Kosir in the final race of the season for thirteenth overall. Aaron McCaulley learned a lot in his first year of Formula 1200. The Sixth rookie on the grid, he finished fourteenth this season.
    Rookie drivers Kyle Kosir and Scott Laporte both finished the season in fifteenth and sixteenth spot. Tony Thorton came back to race Formula 1200 and with all the tough luck he finished seventeenth overall. Sam Mandia was back this year the oldest driver on the grid. Dave Aird had his fun with a brand new chassis both finishing off the grid with eighteenth and nineteenth overall.

    Formula 1200 and Formula Vee is the same thing. The only thing we use diffrently to europe is Engine size. Which we might change, since its becoming harder to find the engines. And to the SCCA American 1200`s they use slick tires. Which we don`t to keep the cost down. We are currently waiting on the new confirmation of a tire supplier.

    Car engine, Low HP, but still does 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. Its a Beetle engine from 1962. Formula First was a series the evolved from Formula 1200. They tried to get it going in Canada but never caught on. only 20 more hp, but had disc brakes and was 1600cc. One driver to look for is Alex Ellis. He competed in Formula 1200 last year, finished 2nd in the class, with rookie of the year. He just finished his season in Formula BMW Americas, and just tried out for the Grand Prix Shoot out. As in the Article there was 22 drivers, and each race were 3 seconds appart from the first car to the last car. Also the race is usually decided on the last corner of the last lap. Formula 1200 also hit a maximum of 2.5 gs in cornering.

    Thank you for posting this. From quite a famous form of racing Formula Vee has now become rather silent one. I didn't know it is still popular anywhere. Good to see those bug engined cars running well. Are there many new cars in F1200 or are they mostly ageing ones?
    By the way, judging by your nickname are you actually Kyle Kosir?

    No Problem, It comes and goes in spurts i guess you can say, the biggest feild was 34 drivers in the 80's I was told. It sorta dropped of. Yes I am the driver of the Home Depot #19 Car for Formula 1200. I joined last year and we only had 12 drivers, this season we had 23 drivers race, average was 18 car feild. We had drivers from all over, Saskatoon, Brazil, Quebec, its starting to pick up again. To answer your questions about the cars, since were an open chassis class, alot of them are late 90's early 2000. The Chassis i ran was a 1997 BRD. And i was running top 7 a couple of races.
