Over the past few years, Marc Stehle hasn’t had the best of weekends at Goodwood Kartways for the opening rounds of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. That cannot be said about this past weekend though as Stehle ruled the Briggs & Stratton Masters category, making key passes when needed and taking home wins on both races days.
On Saturday, Stehle (Ricciardo Kart) pushed David Anderson (Awesome Kart) off the start and the two broke free as the race for third heated up behind them.
While the leaders waited until halfway to mix things up, Kyle Aulenback (K&K Kart), Stephen Goebel (FA Kart) and Eli Yanko (FA Kart) were racing hard for third, trading the final podium position back and forth.
Stehle took to the lead on lap eight and while Anderson tried all he could, each time he made an attempt to pass for the lead, Stehle countered back and erupted out of corner nine with the lead for good to take the win. Anderson settled for second while Yanko won the battle for third. Scott Jefferies (Kosmic) had a good recovery to take fourth with Aulenback fifth.
It was a similar story in Sundays Final but this time Stehle went to battle with Jefferies wit Greg Jewell (TonyKart) waiting in the wings for something to happen between the leaders.
Full Results from the weekend
Jefferies was only able to overtake the defending Canadian Champion once, on lap eleven, but once again Stehle managed the position perfectly and was unstoppable in sweeping the opening rounds at Goodwood.
Jefferies crossed only 0.081 seconds behind at the line after a drag race up the hill with Jewell completing the podium.
