He is a very talented, young local racer that has proven he can compete for victory lane if given the right opportunity. The Avion Motorsport RS1 Series provides the right formula to truly test a driver’s talent. With all cars being identical, the series is all about the driver. Yianni will get a chance to test his skills in a talented field of racers where money cannot give any driver an advantage. Unlike most other racing series, if a young talent wants to prove themselves in a level playing field, the Avion Motorsports RS1 Series is the premier opportunity in Canada.” Said Ingo Seibert co-owner of the Penticton Speedway. Yianni started his career in Quarter Midgets, then moved up to racing Hornets at the Penticton Speedway in his #11 Hornet. Recently, Yianni proved his true racing talent when he swept the Young Guns Memorial Weekend Street Stock main events. At the young age of 19, Yianni is looking forward to stepping up to the next level of his racing career.

Fans will get the opportunity to watch some amazing young drivers race against skilled veterans that have raced at all levels of motorsports internationally.
