2016 Innisfil KartClub

As we prepare for the 2016 IKC Championship Season we will be enhancing this website and offering some exciting new features.

EKN.ca One-on-One with Tony Launi our patriarch ... (November 11, 2016 - original article from 2011 being reconstructed)

Press releases will be published on the major Karting News Sites CKN, EKN...
Please feel free to contact us at Racing@Innisfilindy.com or Rosa/Tony @ 905-775-4686

EKN.ca One-on-One: Tony Launi of Northern Ontario Karting Championship By Jeff Grist for eKartingNews.ca In the winter most of us think skiing as we are heading up Highway 400. A good friend once said: “You know you are racing in Canada when you pass ski hills on the way to the track.” When you do get to Innisfil Indy, just a few minutes off the highway, you enter a place where the karting is great and family fun is on top of the menu. And speaking of menu, we can’t talk about Innisfil Indy without wetting everyone’s appetite by mentioning Rose Launi’s famous veal sandwich. Always a hit among all visitors, it may be just as popular as the racing on the smooth 10-turn kart track that is home to the Innisfil Kart Club. In a 2008 article I wrote (and what writer isn’t their own biggest fan), “With over 35 years of history packed into the rolling paddock, this little track has produced many great races, racers and most of all memories. The heart and soul of the Launi Family is poured into every corner of the facility where family patriarch Tony can be found making sure everything is just right. With over 37 years of karting experience in Canada, Launi has seen, experienced and been part of the karting community we call home today. It’s easy to forget that before big trailers and trick sticker kits there was a basic passion for racing. A passion that pushed blood through the veins of those caught up in the excitement of speed and competition that could be captured in the back of your pick up truck.” Never one to stand still, facility owner Tony Launi has some big plans for 2011 with the creation of the new Northern Ontario Karting Championship. Hosted by Innisfil Kart Club, the NOKC 2011 events are Rotax Max Challenge qualifying events and will run as part of the Innisfil Kart Club schedule. Drivers wishing to qualify for the ASN Canada FIA Canadian Nationals must compete in at least three qualifying events before August 1, 2011. The NOKC events will compete under RMC regulations, and all NOKC events will offer the full compliment of Rotax classes including Rotax DD2, Rotax Senior, Rotax Junior, Rotax Mini Max and Rotax Micro Max.

We took some time to connect with Tony and here is what he had to say. eKartingNews.ca: Tony, thanks for taking some time to chat with our EKN.ca readers. There is lots of snow on the ground still, but some big are things going on for 2011. What is new at the track? Tony Launi: We spent the big money last year. The entire track has been paved and all the work is done. The curbing is perfect. How come you have not come by to see the track? EKN.ca: Yes, my bad. I will definitely be there this summer to check things out. You are launching a new series this season, The Northern Ontario Karting Championship. Why should I want to race that? TL: It’s going to be a great series because it comes from the club. We are a Rotax Max qualifier so you can get to the Nationals from here. And we have some great prizes. EKN.ca: Everyone loves prizes. Tell me about these prizes. TL: We sweetened the pot by adding to the two previously announced Bridgestone Cup prizes. One senior and one junior will be awarded a free ride courtesy of Innisfil Indy as part of the NOKC champion's awards. We want to be able to offer one senior and one junior of the NOKC a substantial prize for winning the series. These two drivers will join the two drivers that win the prizes with the Innisfil Kart Club. EKN.ca: So let me get this straight. Innisfil Indy is sending four drivers to the Bridgestone Cup. Where is the race taking place in 2011 and when? TL: October 21 to 23 in South Garda, Italy. Not too far from Milano. Joe went there last year. Really nice. EKN.ca: Now it’s part of the Innisfil Kart Club schedule. How will that work? TL: We are making six of the club weekends NOKC races with four of them before August. This will give drivers a chance to get the three races they need to qualify for the Nationals. Many drivers don’t realize that your three races have to be from the same series. You can’t cherry pick among the series for your three qualifying races. And we are doing a couple of races at Mosport and one at Goodwood. EKN.ca: As part of the club I can’t imagine it will be all Rotax. TL: No, we will have some four-cycle classes as well. EKN.ca: Now you have put up some amazing prizes for the Rotax winners, what about the hard working four-cycle guys. TL: I am working on some stuff right now. I am looking to make a BIG prize available to the four-cycle guys. We will have cash prizes for four-cycle every week for them. I think the racing is going to be great. EKN.ca: Now I’m from the Niagara area and don’t usually think of the Barrie area as Northern Ontario. The folks in Thunder Bay might have something to say about that. Anyway, why start another karting series here in Ontario? TL: Not all the people can afford to go to the big races. We have something that is based on the club. It will be good for some of the less experienced drivers. And it will be cheaper than the big races. This way everyone can be able to go to the Nationals in Mont Tremblant. EKN.ca: We can’t chat without talking about Frankie. Everyone wants to know what he is up to. As one of the most exciting and talented drivers of the past decade he is definitely the fan favorite. TL: Right now Frankie is not racing. He is working with a number of our drivers here and will help with coaching and tuning. But it’s Frankie so you never know. One weekend he just may end up in the kart. EKN.ca: Do journalists get a special discount on veal sandwiches? TL: No. You pay extra. EKN.ca: Thanks for taking some time to chat with us about the upcoming season. The new series sounds great. Best of luck. TL: No problem. And I better see you here this summer.

LE CONT TIRES LAND IN CANADA FOR CANADIAN KARTING CHALLENGE AND INNISFIL INDY

"Innisfil Indy named distributor for Eastern Canada" February 1, 2018 - The Le Cont Tire brand has landed in Canada courtesy of Innisfil Indy Karting. Striking a deal with WR Motorsports (WRM), Innisfil Indy Karting will be the Eastern Canadian distributor for the growing tire brand. "We would like to welcome Innisfil Indy owners Tony and Rose Launi to both the WR Motorsports and Le Cont family," explained Wagner Rossi of WRM. "We have many plans to work together with Innisfill Indy Karting and The F Series Group in 2018! And the best is yet to come!" Located in Ontario and very close to the New York Race Complex Powered by Le Cont, Innisfil Indy is one of the main karting facilities in Canada and is the home of the Innisfil Kart Club and the Canadian Karting Challenge. "We are very excited to be part of the Le Cont team and offer our karting customers in Canada a great racing tire," explained Rose and Tony Launi. "The Le Cont brand is a great addition to our business and will give our members more for their money with better on track performance. We are looking forward to growing this partnership for the years to come." The Canadian Karting Challenge will utilize the Le Cont brand beginning with their first race of the season in May. Tires will be available in the very near future for customers looking to test and prepare for the upcoming season. The Canadian Karting Challenge schedule is listed below: May 5 - 6 - Innisfil Indy Karting June 9 - 10 - Innisfil Indy Karting July 21 - 22 - Shannonville Motorsport Park **Friday July 20 (Practice from 5:00pm to 8:00pm) August 11 - 12 - Innisfil Indy Karting September 22 - 23 - Innisfil Indy Karting Great things are being offered yet again at the Canadian Karting Challenge. Cash awards will be given to the top three finishers in each class at every event. The prize purse per event will be determined by the number of entries in the respective classes. Launi added, "We will take $25.00 from each entry and add it to the class prize pot. Ten entries will be $250.00 worth of cash that will be split amongst the podium winners on the weekend. The more entries that run in the class, the more money that will be given away. Also, the same prize structure will be used for the end of the year championship. We can't wait to get started!" In order to qualify for the year-end championship prizes, the driver must be a member of the Innisfil Kart Club or Canadian Karting Challenge program. The Canadian Karting Challenge will also enter each participant in a drawing to win a GP or Launi Kart chassis at the end of the six race championship providing that a minimum of sixty entrants are met per class over the course of the season. Three chassis will be available for the taking with one going to gearbox/shifter classes, one to all participating TaG drivers and the third one to all participating four-stroke entrants. Winners will be announced at the year-end awards banquet in November and attendance is mandatory to be eligible for the chassis.
