Le Circuit Quyon (LCQ) is absolutely thrilled to announce that it has been confirmed as a participating track in the 2015 Briggs & Stratton Weekly Racing Series (WRS) by RLV! This is great news for LCQ, and fantastic news for racers participating in the Ottawa-Gatineau Karting Championship (OGKC)!
The Briggs & Stratton WRS by RLV is a series established by Briggs & Stratton’s Racing Division, designed to promote, support, and give back to local racers competing in the Briggs & Stratton Senior and Masters Categories. The series is sponsored by Amsoil, Briggs & Stratton, and RLV Tuned Exhaust Products Inc. The WRS will enable racers in different regions to compete “head-to-head” for the top step of the podium, with three regional champions to be named in the United States, one regional champion to be crowned in Canada, as well as four top ‘206’ track awards. For the Canadian regional competition, Briggs & Stratton will be awarding over $13,000 in prizes to the top ten racers overall and the top ‘206’ track – that is a fantastic commitment to the Canadian karting scene by the sponsors of the WRS! Racers from WSR-affiliated tracks will accumulate points over the course of their racing season which will count toward the overall Canadian crown!
LCQ is the home track of the OGKC, meaning that racers participating in the OGKC’s Briggs & Stratton LO206 Senior and Masters Categories will automatically be entered into the WRS! To ensure alignment with WRS requirements, all of the eligible races are to be held at the same WRS-affiliated track. The OGKC’s race dates for participation in the WRS are listed on the WRS-series website here.
In 2012, significant infrastructure work was completed at LCQ enabling races of different track configurations, directions, and lengths, ensuring that all of the racing action is unique and interesting for racers and spectators alike! LCQ is completing even more infrastructure upgrades this year to support on-track activities and make the racing experience in Canada’s Capital Region even better than 2014 – this year is really shaping up to be a great one!
