Coupe du Quebec: Samuel Lupien wins an exciting Mini-Max Final

The final major event of the 2013 Canadian karting season is on track this weekend at the Jim Russell Karting Academy in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. Saturday featured the season finale for the Coupe du Quebec, where drivers duked it out under cool and cloudy conditions for championship glory, and ahead of Sunday’s Eastern Canadian Karting Championship finale.

The Rotax Mini-Max field never disappoints. Today’s action in the Final saw all kinds of racing for the lead and throughout the pack. Most notably, Antonio Serravalle (Pserra Racing/TonyKart) had built a nice lead in the final, but he overshot hit exit coming onto the back straight and spun, sending him well down the order. This moved Thierry Cote (PSL Karting/CRG) to the lead, but only a lap later he ran into trouble too, and lost a chain as well in the corner 11.

This moved Charles Deschenes (SH Karting/Zanardi) to the lead and Samuel Lupien (CSL/Birel) and Joe Soranno (Karts & Parts/LH Kart) second and third. Deschenes began pulling away with Lupien holding station in second as Andreas De Abla (Zanardi) caught and began to pressure Soranno for the final podium step.

At the line Deschenes scored the win ahead of Lupien with De Alba getting third. However following the race Deschenes was penalized for contact early in the race, moving Lupien to the top of the box with De Alba and Soranno at his sides. Jackson Neilands (TonyKart) would move up to fourth, scoring his best finish of the season.
