Coming off a very successful Eastern Canadian Karting Championship season Ben Cooper Racing heads into the ASN Canadian National Championships this weekend with high hopes to add another championship to their sophomore season. Taking to their home track in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec the team is prepared and ready for five days of racing action to determine Canada’s National champions.
Leading the charge for BCR will be the Mini-Max trio of Chloe Chambers, Dale Curran, and Justin Arseneau. All three drivers have consistently been at the front of the field bringing the team multiple podium finishes. With the biggest race of the year coming this weekend all three will be determined to stand on top of the podium come Sunday.
“We are really excited for the upcoming Canadian Nationals Championships at our home track. We have a strong chance for wins and podiums in all of the catergories that we are racing in. We can’t wait to see the outcome on Sunday.”
In the Rotax Junior category Patrick Woods-Toth has enjoyed an impressive rookie season in the category after taking home the Mini-Max Canadian title a year ago. Woods development throughout the year will make him a podium contender at the Nationals. Joining Woods in Junior Max will be Emma Delattre and Tommy Simard, both of whom have a shot at finishing in the top-ten this weekend.
Returning to the team after running the Florida Winter Tour in February is Georgie Zouein. Zouein has continued to develop into a top Micro-Max driver in Abu Dhabi and returns to Canada as a title contender.
Didier Carre and Normand Lord will represent the team in DD2 and DD2 Masters. Carre has continued to show great speed in the DD2 category and has a legitimate chance at fighting for the Rotax Grand finals ticket this weekend. Lord on the other hand only made one start at a National event this season where he won one of the finals at the Mont Tremblant ECKC stop.
BCR would like to welcome back Xavier Dorsnie to the team this weekend after recovering from an injury he sustained earlier this season at the ECKC opener. Dorsnie competed in the Coupe De Montreal race this past weekend, winning the Final and showing little signs of rust from his time away from the kart. Joining Dorsnie in Briggs & Stratton Junior will be Brandon Itzcovitch.
In Briggs & Stratton Senior, last year’s ECKC champion Simon Belanger will be one of two BCR driver in the field. Belanger would like to end the National season on top of the podium and has the ability to do so. Joining Belanger will be reigning Rotax Junior National champion Samuel Lupien who has decided to compete in the Briggs & Stratton Senior category after already securing his spot on Team Canada for the Rotax Grand finals.
Finally, Cedrik Lupien will be the sole BCR driver in Rotax Senior. After finishing a disappointing second in the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship this season Lupien is determined to bounce back this weekend to bring home a national championship and a ticket to the Rotax Grand Finals.
