The Rotax Max Junior class continues to provide the 2012 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship with some of the best racing currently available. Today’s race at ICAR was exciting from the front to the rear, as there were heavy battles for every position all race long.
Santino Ferrucci (Energy Kart Canada/Energy) made a great move to the inside of turn one from his third starting spot to take the early lead, while pole-sitter Parker Thompson (SH Karting/TonyKart) and Samuel Fontaine (PSL Karting/CRG) tucked in behind the young American through the first lap. It didn’t take long for Thompson to make his move for the lead, and in the process, he brought Fontaine through with him and the two began to break away.
Tyler Kashak (Intrepid), Jeffrey Kingsley (SRA Karting/Birel) were then able to track down Ferrucci and the trio began dicing for position until Thompson and Fontaine began trading the top spot, allowing Kashak, Kingsley and Ferrucci to catch back up and make it a five-kart battle for the lead.
The exciting race that went down to the final lap would see Thompson take the checkers, his second ECKC victory of the summer, ahead of Fontaine, Kingsley, Ferrucci and Kashak.
