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.
It was a very uneventful day in Rotax Senior as Zachary Claman DeMelo (ZCD/Praga) was in control when it mattered. Although Steven Szigeti (SH Karting/Zanardi) got the holeshot in the prefinal, it didn’t take DeMelo long to regain his lead before Szigeti was forced into a mechanical DNF on lap three. From there, Demelo simply drove away from his competitors.
Racing for second, Zachary Scalzo (KGK/TonyKart) had his hands full of Kevin Monteith (REM/Birel), Tommy Lemaire-Ouellet (SH Karting/Zanardi) and Marco Di Leo (IPK/Praga), who made the switch back to Senior from DD2 this weekend. The foursome duked it out, with Monteith eventually taking the second step on the podium with DiLeo third.
