While most of Team Canada was confirmed at last weekends ASN Open Canadian Karting Championships, two more drivers added their names to the entry lists for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals, held this year in Sarno, Italy.
Competing in the final round of the CAN-AM Karting Challenge in Canby, Oregon, Rotax Junior driver Matthew Taskinen and Rotax Senior driver Coltin McCaughan entered the weekend leading the championship points in their respective categories.
For both drivers it was an intense weekend of racing with big stakes on the line and while neither driver was able to come home with the victory, both still earned podium finishes to cap off their championship seasons and earn the tickets to the Rotax Grand Finals to represent their home country, joining Team Canada.
For Taskinen, it will be his first trip to the Rotax Grand Finals while McCaughan returns for his second venture to race against the best Rotax racers from around the world as he competed in 2013 as a Rotax Junior.
With the Rotax Grand Finals just over a month away, it appears Team Canada is now set with a large contingent of drivers representing the maple leaf.
CKN will have a complete breakdown of each Team Canada driver in the weeks leading up to big event.
