Celebrating The Best at K1 Speed Toronto
28 January 2019
First Ever K1RS Champions Appreciation Night
K1 Speed Toronto hosted their first ever K1RS Champions Appreciation Night celebrating the top 100 K1RS points earners of 2018. Thank you to all who came out to support this event. What a great night of racing with an amazing group of racers. A special shout-out to Daniel Demaras, Jason Wong, and Stefano Picerno who finished Top 3 on the 2018 K1RS Leaderboard and set the bar high for those looking to catch them for 2019!
On January 23rd, the rush of adrenaline and the rush of competitive spirit of racing reached a peak with many of K1 Speed Toronto’s top drivers all under one roof. Motivated by the grand prize of a 10-race pack going to the racer who posted the best lap time of the night, competition was fierce.
Dawson Campbell, one of this year’s top racers, held down the best lap time for most of the night with a top time of 23.475. Like many racing events, the twist and turn of the tracks provoked some new lap times and an unexpected winner.
The very last race of the night featured some of K1 Toronto’s best, including Dawson Campbell (the holder of the top time of the night), Jason Wong (the holder of the best time of 2019), Abrar Khan (2018 King of Speed), and Anatoli Gourouchkine (all-time record holder for the K1 Toronto Track). The event concluded with Jason Wong posting a top lap-time of 23.41 and dethroning Dawson for the best lap time of the night and winning the 10-race prize pack.
Regardless of podium place or track time, we are proud of every racer that tuned up and appreciate the great camaraderie among all the racers.
The K1RS appreciation night finished with a Podium ceremony recognizing the Top 3 K1RS Points earners of 2018 and thanking all our racers for all of their support this past year!
Our appreciation night was a great start to building K1RS Points for 2019 and a fun way to announce of some new and exciting programs soon to arrive to K1 Speed Toronto, including our Challenger Series events, Drift Nights, Race Leagues, and the return of our Karting Academy.
