The final round of the 2013 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship hits the track this weekend in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec at the beautiful Jim Russell Karting Circuit. The final major event of the Canadian season see’s the ECKC paired up with Coupe du Quebec, setting up for a major championship weekend.
Following the third round of the series that saw race #5 completed at the popular Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres, we reflect on the results and set the tone entering the Championship finale in our ECKC Power Rankings. While some drivers have put themselves in great position for their class championships, our rankings may see things a little different in the classes with tight championships, rewarding those who continue to finish races.
With many front-runners missing the round at Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres, there wasn’t a whole lot of shaking in our Briggs & Stratton Senior Rankings.
