For the second year in a row we present the CKN Year in Review Awards. We here at Canadian Karting News decided to create our own set of awards, all pertaining to categories we feel worthy and throughout the final weeks of 2014, we will highlight an award for categories such as Junior and Senior driver’s of the year in both the Rotax Max and Briggs & Stratton divisions, helmet design of the year, Canadian event of the year among many others.
While these are all the opinion of CKN, you can let us know who you think deserved each award. Using the comments below each article, let us know who you feel was worthy of the award and a short blurb why you believe so.

Winner: Team PSL Karting
Well it’s no surprise for the second consecutive year Team PSL Karting is Canada’s team of the year. They started the year out at the Florida Winter Tour where Pedro Cardoso won the Rotax Junior championship sticking it to all the OTK Entrants in the category. Then in April the team ended the winter season with two championships in the Challenge of the Americas series with Gavin Reichelt and Alan Rudolph bringing home the Rotax DD2 and Rotax DD2 Masters Championships.
Back home in Canada PSL won a total of four Championships in the Coupe du Quebec Championship, two in Eastern Canadian Karting Championship and two Nationals titles along with the Teams Cup title at the Canadian Championships. Once again this season PSL also had the most drivers than any other team in Canada as their success continues to bring more drivers into the team.
2014 also saw the addition of Jordan Lennox-Lamb to the team for the SKUSA Pro Tour Championship. The driver from the United Kingdom went on to sweep the S1 Pro Stock Moto division in the series giving PSL the premier championship in North America.
While the team is set for major changes in 2015 as they have announced, we are proud to call them our 2014 CKN Canadian Team of the Year.
