JICA Class had 9 entries with 1 Birel with the majority being Tony Karts. Nick Tonkin in his Birel R31SP posted fast time in qualifying, had brain fad in the heat and spun out ( rain ), but went from last to first and walked away with the Canadian JICA Championship on a now dry but green track.

In the end with Nicks, time of 51.818 and another karter at 51.838 it was chassis set-up of his R31SP as well as his excellent driving that put him on top and as the announced said "walked away" with the win.

Very well done and we hope you sell lots of R31's and Free line Air boxes as a result. Mike Giessen also walked away both days at Stars in Elk. Lake Wisconsin. Very big weekend for Birel as there is more to come. garry
