Coupe du Quebec: Victory and Championship for Tommy Nepveu
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.
In Rotax Micro-Max, Tommy Nepveu (SH Karting/Zanardi) was nearly untouchable all day long. He qualified on the pole-position, raced hard in the Prefinal with Matthew Latifi (Ferrolati Corse/TonyKart) and William Chayer (KMS/Birel), but ultimately pulled away to a massive lead and victory in the Final. While Nepveu checked out, Chayer and Latifi put on a great race for second that saw Latifi take the position for good on the final lap in a drag race down the long back straight. Coming in fourth was Xavier Harris (IPK/Praga) while Alexandre Legare (SH Karting/Zanardi capped the top-five.
With the win and a solid season, Nepveu also scored the Coupe du Quebec Championship.
