In only their fourth year of existence, NF Sports will bring ten drivers to the opening event weekend of the ROK Cup USA Florida Winter Tour (FWT). Taking place on a temporary circuit, adjacent to the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, the Orlando based team will be aiming high as they look to fight for race wins and podium results aboard their OTK product line.
“We had overwhelming interest in the team for this year’s Florida Winter Tour,” explained Bruno Fusaro. “Despite having ten drivers, more than we have ever had before for the FWT, we chose to decline entry to a few to the team. Our goal is to grow our program in a manageable and elite way, all while providing the best customer services, advice and support to our drivers.”
At the 2018 edition of the series, NF Sports and Eduardo Barrichello were named Vice Champions. Between Barrichello and Diego Ramos, the duo scored two of the three main event on track victories and was the team to beat. Entering 2019, NF Sports enters drivers from three different countries including Brazil, Italy and Bolivia with competitors racing in Mini ROK, Junior ROK, Senior ROK and Shifter ROK.
