2014 Rotax Euromax DD2 Champion Ben Cooper (KMS/Birel) continued his reign at this weekends Coldstone Rotax Pan American Challenge as the Canadian scored three very convincing heat race victories. Cooper was calm and cool all day long and while those behind him fought tooth and nail for the second position on back.
Englishman Ed Brand (Goodwood/Intrepid) wound up with three runner-up finishes and will start alongside Cooper in Sundays PreFinal. After starting second all day, Canadian Jeffrey Kingsley (PSL/CRG) falls back to row two, ranking third overall with rival Fred Woodley (Prime/Maranello) fourth. The three of Brand, Kingsley and Woodley put on an excellent display of racing and it should carry over into Sundays final day of competition.
American Gavin Reichelt (PSL/CRG) recovered from a tough first heat and will start from fifth beside his PSL teammate Alan Rudolph. After a tough qualifying effort, Pier-Luc Ouellette (KMS/Birel) raced well on Saturday, including a fifth-place in heat three. He will start the PreFinal from eighth while fellow Canadian Dante Lerra (Energy Kart Canada) wound up ranked twelfth after the heat races.
It was a clean sweep for Venezuelan Luis Schiavo (Goodwood/Intrepid) as he scored all three DD2 Masters wins. Costa Rican Andres Fonseca (PSL/CRG) and Canadian Elvis Stojko (Prime/Maranello) traded second place results with Stojko getting the upper hand in heat three.
On Sunday the DD2 Masters will race separately from the DD2’s meaning Schiavo will line up on the pole alongside Stojko.
