November 14th, 2005:
Tag Senior was the largest class of the weekend with nearly 60
karts entered. Taking the lead off the green flag was Italian Motors’
David Jurca, who was never seriously challenged. Jurca would pilot
his Italkart/Parilla Leopard package to a comfortable margin in
the 25 lap final.
During qualifying, David Jurca experienced carburetors issues,
which placed him 15th on the grid of 40 drivers. During the heat
races, Jurca then moved his way through the field and would earn
himself a top ten starting position for the final. At the start,
Jurca quickly advanced to fifth position and was challenging Jason
Bowles by lap three. The two drivers made contact in turn six dropping
the Italkart pilot back to tenth. Jurca would then re-work his way
back up to fourth while setting one of the fastest laps of the race.
Unfortunately, Ron White would punt him on the last corner of the
last lap, sending him back to sixth.
