With six out of seven victories to him name Thomas Nepveu entered the final day of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship with relative ease knowing he had already secured not one, but two Championships.
The rainy conditions really put the pressure on the youngest drivers competing on the weekend. In the Final Nepveu was comfortably out front until he pushed a little too hard on lap four and spun out. This allowed Justin Arseneau (PSL/CRG) to gain the lead as Nepveu returned to the track in fourth place.
Nepveu charged back as much as he could, mixing it up with National Champion Jeremy Tallon (KMS/Birel) in the closing stages, but Arseneau continued to hit his marks and was out of reach for Nepveu.
The victory is the first for Arseneau as he caps off his Micro-Max season on a high note. Nepveu eventually ditched Tallon and wound up second followed by William Michaud (PSL/CRG) at the finish line. Tallon fell to fourth.
Nepveu’s impressive season earned him the title in both the Eastern Canadian Karting Champion and the Coupe du Quebec. Joining him on the ECKC podium were Tallon and Arseneau, while Arseneau and Patrick Woods-Toth (PSL Montreal/CRG) were on the Coupe du Quebec podium with Nepveu.
