Buzza and Amorim End 2018 Season Atop the Senior/Masters Briggs Weekly Series Rankings

It’s official, the 2018 karting season is in the books. We capped off the final race on our calendar when we returned home from Brazil, closing out a phenomenal karting season and now were beginning to reflect on the journey.

Today we’re looking at the Briggs Weekly Series rankings where hundreds of Canadian kart racers took part this season. From coast to coast, Briggs 206 racers hit the track with their respective kart clubs, challenging for race wins, points championships and their position in the coveted Briggs Weekly Series, where great prizes are always up for grabs at year end.

This year, Briggs & Stratton Racing awarded over $150,000 in prizes between Canada and the USA, and surpassed 15,000 competing racers!

A dozen Canadian kart clubs took part including Atlantic Motorsports Karters Association (NS), Calgary Kart Racing Association (AB), Championship Kart Racing Association (NB), Edmonton & District Kart Racing Association (AB), Goodwood Kartways (ON), Manitoba Karting Association (MB), Mosport Kartways (ON), Point Pelee Karting Club (ON), Saskatoon Kart Racers, (SK), South Sask Kart Club (SK), Toronto Kart Club (ON) and West Coast Kart Club (BC).

Leading the way in the three Canadian divisions were drivers from three different kart clubs. Manitoba Karting Associations’ John Buzza placed himself inside the top-10 for another season, taking the top honour in the Senior ranks while Angelo Amorim of the Edmonton & District Kart Racing Association just barely edged Alan Haggarty for the Masters Crown. The two categories are ranked together in the overall ranking but scored separately for our viewing pleasures.

Very impressively, Buzza finished the season in the top-five overall in the Briggs Weekly Series rankings that combines the Canadian and USA drivers. Canadian runner-up Stephan Bachalo, also from Manitoba Karting Association, finished up eleventh overall. Ontario’s Jordan Prior enjoyed an incredible club racing season, winning both the Goodwood and Mosport championships in Ontario and thus earnings himself two positions in the top-ten Canadian rankings.
