Last years Western Canadian Championship Rotax Senior Champion Chris Glover (GBR Karting/LH Kart) made great strides in defending his championship this past weekend. Earning a second place result on Saturday, Glover wasted no time getting to the front in Sundays main event. Tracking down early leader Kevin King (CRG West/CRG), Glover set up his opponent on lap seven, making his move and never
looking back. With the rain really coming down, the mixture of Rotax Senior and Rotax Masters sure provided plenty of excitement.
Kyle Sheilds (Karting Canada/ItalKart) made good work of his start, and eventually found himself hounding Saturday winner Stepanova Nekeel (Mach1) for the third position by lap five. When an unfortunately retirement for Nekeel happened on lap thirteen, Sheilds seized the opportunity to snag a step on the podium.
Up front, Glover continued to post fast laps en route to taking a nine-second victory ahead of King and Sheilds. A great drive by Adam Dowler (Apollo Motorsports TonyKart) saw him earn a fourth place result, while Logan Downing (Birel) completed the top-five.
In Masters, Mike Peltier topped the podium with Ganz Lonnie and Mario Gimenez completing the top-three.
