Saturday’s action at the the Jim Russell Karting Academy, host of the 2012 ASN Canadian Karting Championships, continued to heat up. With high temperatures, and beautiful sunny skies drivers and teams were back on track for their second and third round of heat races, setting up their positions for Sunday’s pre-finals.
In Rotax Junior, every session thus far has been simply dominated by Zachary Claman Demelo (ZCD/PSL/CRG). He has been untouchable from the drop of the green flag, winning the final two heat races in fine fashion. With three wins, Demelo will start Sunday’s pre final from the pole-position.
Consistency has helped Tommy Lamaire-Ouellet (SH Karting/TonyKart) throughout the week, even with his hands full with the SRA/Birel trio of Olivier Bedard, Jeffrey Kingsley and Nicholas Dore. Lamaire-Ouellet posted a third and a second in today’s final two heats to earn the off-pole position for the pre final.
Kingsley was able to manage a second in heat two, but a crash on the opening lap of heat three pushed him down the order to finish twelfth.
Kingsley’s loss in heat three was Dore’s gain as he managed to finish on the bumper of Lamaire-Ouellet in third, adding to his seventh in heat two. But it will be Bedard that will start P3 for Sunday’s pre final after posting a fifth and six place result in today’s final two heats. Dore will start fourth, while Kingsley starts in the fifth position.
