Drivers and teams returned to Mosport International Karting for race two of the 2013 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. The weather was very much the same as Saturday’s competition where a mixture of rain and sun and heavy winds played havoc on everyone in attendance.
Braxton Terry (Birel) took Pole for a second day in a row in Briggs Junior ahead of teammates Andre Fiorini (K&K) and Jordan Latimer (K&K). Nicholas Hornbostel (Intrepid) and Zachery Vanier both completed the top five in class.
Latimer would take the win in the wet pre final ahead of Tyler McCullough and Terry. Terry who was the Pole Sitter for the race was at a disadvantage as he was on W4 the intermediate tire where as the rest of the field was on the W5 Vega compound giving them the advantage in the wet.
In the Final Latimer gapped the field right away as he pulled away to a two-second lead at the start ahead of a three kart battle for second between McCullough, Hornbostel, and Fiorini. Coming on strong in the closing stages, Fiorini would get into third by the flag, but up front it was all Latimer for the victory McCullough was second while Hornbostel and Levin Rossiter (CRG) was fifth.
The series now shifts to Goodwood Kartways on June 28-30 for races three and four. As Goodwood is the host for the Canadian Championships, there should be another great turnout of karters as many will utilize the time to prepare.
