11 Drivers Fly to Pole-Positions on Saturday

It’s a little chilly in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec this weekend, but that hasn’t stopped more than 250 entrants from competing in the Canadian Open and Coupe de Montreal season finale. Spread across twelve categories, drivers from coast to coast have converged to make it Canada’s largest karting event of the season and one of the most attended in the past decade as well.

Saturday’s action featured official Qualifying for all eleven categories on track, along with a selection of PreFinals.

Notably, Briggs Junior and Briggs Senior needed to be split into two groups as both classes exceeded the limit of 34 karts this weekend, with Senior hitting a weekend high of 42 entrants. With the large number, two PreFinals for each class are needed to set the starting grid of 34 for Sunday’s Final.

With tickets up for grabs to the 2020 Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals and Canadian Open bragging rights in Briggs and Shifter on the line, the intensity at the Jim Russell Karting Academy was high on Saturday.

Here are the top-10 results for each category from Qualifying.
