Over the past two months BBR Karting has had an amazing journey travelling through North America competing for various Championships at nationals and international events. The stats speak for themselves which included, traveling over 9,100 km’s, on the road for 43 days, competing at the Rotax Summer Shootout, Rotax Can Am, Western Canadian Championship, US Nationals, and the team did not disappoint with a total of 28 podiums, 9 wins, 11 poles including the US Rotax Nationals Super Pole, 2 championships and 2 tickets to the Rotax Grand Finals.
Bryce Choquer – Rotax Senior – Team Canada 2014
Bryce has become one of the top drivers in North America in Rotax getting on the podium at every event he competed in. Bryce took home 3rd at the Rotax Summer Shoot out. The following weekend he took the win and points lead in the Western Canadian Championship. Although Bryce suffered a major rib injury he had to take as much time off as possible and did extensive therapy. In the final round Bryce was still in pain, but managed to finish on the podium and gain enough points to represent Team Canada in Spain. Bryce finished 6th at the 2010 Rotax Grand Finals, and has full intention to repeat a top 10 finish in Spain.
Sting Ray Robb – Junior – Team USA 2014
Mr. Apex moved up from being the #1 Mini max driver in 2013 and has never looked back. Sting Ray has been strong all year and a front runner at every major event. Getting the Super Pole at the 2014 Rotax US Nationals has to be one of the best highlights of the year. But nothing is more exciting then qualifying for Worlds through Can Am after getting pole, a win, points for fast lap in both finals and a 2nd. Sting Ray won the ticket by 3 points over his good friend Kyle Wick who had a great battle all year. This will be his first time competing at Worlds in Junior.
Kellen Ritter – Junior
Kellen had a rough start to 2014. After making the switch after the 2nd round of Challenge Of Americas to BBR we began extensive driver training and the results began to get stronger and stronger. We set goals in place and slowly started crossing them off, with top 15, top 10, and his first big result was his 5th position finish in the Rotax Can Am at Pats Acres. But he didn’t stop there, at the Western Canadian Championship he had a 2nd place, and got his first podium finish at a National event. Kellen has done such an amazing job, and to see him from the beginning of the season to where he is now is so impressive. We put the time in and focused on his weak areas and his results speak for himself.
Carson Vogel – 2014 WCC Mini Max Champion
Carson Vogel did not put a wheel wrong at the opening round of the Western Canadian karting Championship. 3 Poles, 3 Wins gave him a big lead heading into the final round. Carson had the opportunity to compete at the Rotax Grand Finals mini Invitation last year and he continues to develop as one of Canada’s top mini max drivers. Carson went on to take the WCC Championship and now has his sights set on the ASN Canadian Nationals.
Edward Portz – Can Am Vice Champion Mini
There are races in history that you will remember forever and always talk about. Edward at the 2014 US Nationals had one of the best performances in the final, starting 26th he went through the field to take 6th place. Edward also finished 2nd in the rotax Can Am Mini Max Championship.
“When I look back I am so happy for our team and all the results they achieved. Out of our 7 drivers all at some point achieved podiums and some for the first time. The team has worked very hard on driver development and the overall program and the results speak for themselves. You couldn’t ask for a harder working group of talented, focused team drivers. I am so excited to have Sting Ray Robb and Bryce Choquer going to Rotax Grand Finals this year. It will be Bryce’s fourth time and Sting Ray’s second.
Moving forward we have two major events coming up including this weeks ASN Canadian Nationals and the Rotax Pan Am which have began to prep for and schedule driver training.” Blake Choquer – Driving Coach
