The theatrics of the Rotax Junior class continued today, with a wild start that saw both Parker Thompson (SH Karting/TonyKart) and Olivier Bedard (SRA Karting/Birel) spinning from positions two and three respectively, before they even got to turn one. This action allowed Zachary Claman Demelo (ZCD-PSL/CRG) to pull an early lead, while the remainder of the class scrambled to get around.
Sliding into second was Tyler Kashak (Intrepid) with Anthony Tolfa (Prime/Maranello) holding down the third position.
The fight for second heated up as the laps ticked away, with many drivers holding the position, until Jeffery Kingsley (SRA Karting/Birel) grabbing the position after he battled through the field from his last row starting spot.
With Demelo gone, and Kingsley pulling away from the pack, this left Cameron Morrison (SH Ontario/TonyKart), Samuel Fontaine (PSL Karting/CRG), Aidan Landauer (REM/Birel) and Tolfa to duke it out for the final podium position. At the finish Landauer earned the spot, but a contact penalty pushed him down to fifth, moving Morrison into third.
