2007 Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals Masters Champion Luc Sauriol (PSL Karting/CRG) hopes to get another shot at earning the Grand Finals title, and he kicked off his bid to earn a spot of Team Canada today with a stellar victory in Rotax DD2 Masters.
Taking advantage of some contact between the drivers ahead of him, Sauriol took the lead early on in the twenty lap race, pulling a nice gap, and controlled his pace all the way to the checked flag.
Behind him, Stuart Clark (Prime/Maranello) was forced to work his way back through the field after contact on lap two sent him wide exiting turn four and into the dirt. Falling as far back as eighth, Clark was on a mission, and en route driving back to third place, he posted the fastest lap of the race.
Ryan Horses (Pserra Racing/Tecno) was on a roll early on, but couldn’t quite match the pace set by Sauriol, but defending nicely again Clark to earn his first ECKC podium appearance.
