BCKCA Championship Round One: Quesnel, British Columbia

On the Wednesday before round one of the BCKCA Regional series in Quesnel, B.C., the Italian Motors team decided they wanted to participate in the event. David Jurca made his way to Canada after school on Thursday and arrived at the track at one in the morning.

Friday was practice and Saturday was qualifying and prefinals. David participated in ICA and in ICC for the very first time. ICC is a purpose built 125cc shifter class. In ICA, David qualified second, just a few hundredths off of pole and in ICC he qualified 2nd in a 35 kart field. Both classes had two separate finals on Sunday.

In the first finals, David finished first in ICA and first in ICC. In the second round of finals while leading ICA, David was hit and taken out of the event. There was extensive damage to his kart and his leg suffered from injured muscles and tendants. In ICC, David got a good start to first but would struggle with worn tires and he ended up finishing third. David explained, “The weekend turned out to be pretty good. I won the first finals in both classes and had a shot at winning the second final in ICA but unfortunately I was taken out of the event. In ICC, we made a bad tire decision and paid the price as our tires didn’t hold up in the second final. Overall though, I was pleased with the way the weekend went and especially how well my new prototype ITALKART was working in the ICA class. I look forward to round two of the BCKCA Regional Series in Youbou, B.C. on Vancouver Island.” As always, David would like to thank his sponsors Best Ceramic, European Tile Inc., Italian Motors, ITALKART, Kuzzins Kustoms, Bell Helmets, MyChron, Serengeti Design, and Jim Mason.
