ASN Canada FIA Announces Location of 2016 Canadian Championships

As the final words at Mosport Kartways before capping off another successful ASN Canadian National Karting Championships on Sunday evening, ASN Canada FIA Vice-President Paul Cooke was very pleased to announce that the 2016 Canadian Championships will return to the Jim Russell Karting Academy in beautiful Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.

While it does not surprise us here at CKN for the event to return to the very welcoming, well staffed and beautiful facility that is Mont-Tremblant, the recent participation numbers at Nationals has us pondering the decision.

Breaking down the numbers from the 2015 Canadian Championships, the host province of Ontario fielded 70% of 197 entries, while Quebec drivers accounted for 22% and the other 8% was a combination from British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and the United States.

In comparison, at the 2014 Canadian Championships held in Mont-Tremblant, 32% of 191 entries came from host province Quebec, while 49% were from Ontario and 19% from the other provinces.

With such strong participation at present being generated by Ontario karters, especially among the Briggs & Stratton LO206 classes, is a return to Quebec after a one-year hiatus warranted, or should the event be staged where most of the supporting karters originate? What do you think Nation?
