Quebec Cup: Joe St. Pierre Prevails in Open Honda

Making more noise than junior dragster, the Honda Open class surely got the attention of everyone in the paddock as well as the better portion of the city of Trois Rivieres. 25 die-hard karting drivers, hit the track today for a once-a-year event that shows off some of the most unique and experimented four-cycle projects around. The sound was deafening, with every engine having their own custom exhaust setup, from rounded french horns, to old ICA pipes, and more.

In the Final, Joe St. Pierre was able to take advantage of a good start to win over Sylain Clair. Due to difficulties at the start Clair lost positions and was held up in traffic which gave him the early disadvantage at the start of the race. In the closing laps, Clair tracked down the leader, only to  finish 86 thousandths of a second behind St. Pierre. Michel Turcotte finished third followed by Samuel St. Onge and Jean-Francois Boyte.
