PORT PERRY – Former Kawartha Speedway champion Todd Delisle has confirmed that his team is in the midst of putting the final pieces in place to build a Pro Late Model development program.
Delisle will have the means to offer a one-stop-shop arrive and drive program for racers – both young and old – looking for a Pro Late Model entry for anything from a one-off appearance to a full schedule and everything in between.
“We sat down at the end of last season and sort’ve took inventory and realized that we have all the pieces to – essentially – field a second team,” explains Delisle. “This is a good chance for us to put our equipment to use and give other racers a chance to jump in a car without investing a hundred thousand dollars to own a Pro Late Model.”
Delisle’s program will feature a freshly redone Port City Racing chassis and will be available for any Pro Late Model event in Ontario.
“The plan right now is to field our own car fulltime with the APC [United Late Model] Series and we’ll have the ability to field our rental car in any event on the tour,” says Delisle. “Outside of the tour events, we’re able to field entries in races at Delaware, Sauble and Jukasa.”
“I think if you take a step back and look at the rosters outside of Late Model racing there is a lot of talent in Ontario right now,” adds the veteran. “I’m looking forward to having the chance to maybe working with some of that talent and helping introduce them to the Late Model division.”
