The final major event of the 2013 Canadian karting season is on track this weekend at the Jim Russell Karting Academy in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. Saturday featured the season finale for the Coupe du Quebec, where drivers duked it out under cool and cloudy conditions for championship glory, and ahead of Sunday’s Eastern Canadian Karting Championship finale.
As a special to the Coupe du Quebec, the series officials added the Briggs & Stratton Junior and Masters divisions for Saturdays event. It was a great call by the officials to allow these guys to run, as many came here just for Sunday’s ECKC race, not having a class to run Saturday.
Andre Fiorini (K&K Kart) was the big winner in an exciting Junior Briggs Final. Racing with Canadian Champion Tyler McCullough (Praga), teammate Jordan Latimer (K&K Kart) and Braxton Terry (Birel) Fiorini was able to come out on top with Latimer a close second. McCullough completed the podium while Terry was forced to the sidelines with a DNF.
In Briggs Masters, Keith Barrick gave the K&K Kart boys their second win of the day, out-dueling Martin Coursol (Arrow). Shane Findlay (Birel) and Kyle Aulenback had a great battle for the final podium position with Findlay taking the spot by a tenth of a second!
