Canadian Karting Nationals: Gerald Caseley wins wild Briggs & Stratton Senior Championship Finale

As one of the largest classes on site at this years ASN Canadian Karting Championships, the Briggs & Stratton Senior division provided some of the most exciting racing all week in Mont-Tremblant.

In the final, JF Lafontaine (Birel) took the lead in the first corner with Gerald Caseley (CRG), Steven Szigeti (TonyKart) and John Buzza (LH Kart) close behind. The four drivers all hooked up and walked away from the rest of the field, choosing to settle the race by themselves later on. All the way through the race the top four stayed line in stern as nobody wanted to lose momentum and let the rest of the field reel them in.

Szigeti was the first person to make the move to the front for as he made a pass on Caseley with 6 laps to go, then on Lafontaine the next lap to take the lead of the race. On the final Lap of the race Lafontaine made the move on the inside of Szigeti going into 14 causing the two to lose momentum. This allowed Caseley, with a push from Buzza to draft past Lafontaine and Szigeti on the back straight and into the lead. Lafontaine was able to hold off Buzza, but at the line it was Caseley taking the victory, Lafontaine second and Szigeti third.
