Recently taking to the 3-S Go Karts facility in Sutton, Ontario for the season opener of the Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship (BSRKC) during the Victoria Day holiday weekend, GP Racing Canada team members excelled at the challenging 3-S facility. Taking home a podium sweep in the Senior Rotax class, as well as three wins, three second place finishes, one third and one fourth, GP Racing Canada was well represented on the podium.

Racing action on the Sunday would see GP drivers sweep the Senior Rotax category. Michael Glaze, Chad Campbell and Stefan Semeraro would lead qualifying with a 1-2-3 effort. Glaze and Campbell remained at the front during the prefinal race, with Semeraro dropping back to eighth in the ten-lap heat. The final however would see the three back in their 1-2-3 formation, as Glaze took the win over Campbell with Semeraro moving up to take the third place on the podium.

Zachary Shearer led the way in Junior Rotax, taking pole position, prefinal win and main event victory to complete the sweep in Sutton. After posting third in both qualifying and the prefinal, fellow GP driver Nelson Learn moved up in the feature race to join Shearer on the podium with his second place finish.

The final race of the day on Sunday would see the ICC/Moto drivers take to the 3-S circuit. Perennial favourite Frank Launi earned the coveted pole position over teammates Zach Meyer and Nico Fattori. The prefinal would again see Launi lead the way, with Fattori maintaining his third place while Meyer’s race ended early on lap one. Powering through the field in the 20-lap main event, Meyer ran down Launi, but came up .0735 seconds short. It was another 1-2 finish for GP Racing Canada drivers, with Fattori adding another excellent result to the team tally with a fourth place finish.
