In the third-annual PrintAction race day, held at Toronto’s GrandPrix Kartways, Michael Steele, co-owner of Sydney Stone, topped 30 other printing-industry drivers to take first place.
The win makes it two consecutive top-place finishes for Sydney Stone, a Toronto-based technology service and distribution company, after last year’s victory by Steele’s business partner, Dylan Westgate.
Brad McDonald from Presstek took second spot in the 2010 Grand Prix heat, while Avanti’s Stephen McWilliam rounded out the podium with a third-place finish. Placing first in the remaining heats were Bill Wilson of Heidelberg Canada (Heat 2), Maria Arias of Fujifilm Canada (Heat 3), and Bruce Morrison of Muller Martini Canada (Heat 4).
Steele also posted the fastest lap time of the day on the indoor-cart track. His 23:326 lap time was followed by Debbie Redgers at 23:587 and Heidelberg Canada’s Bill Wilson at 23:661.
