Double Victory for Di Leo Seals Cup Karts Canada Championship


Double Victory for Di Leo Seals Cup Karts Canada Championship

Four victories in four races earned Jordan Di Leo the Cup Karts Canada Division Briggs Junior Lite Championship after a weekend of domination at Goodwood Kartways.

After taking the points lead last month at the opening round in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Di Leo (Intrepid Kart) returned to his home track for the championship finale looking to close out the title race.

He did just that, tackling hot and sticky conditions on Saturday along with a wet and slippery racing surface on Sunday.

Saturday it was a three-kart battle at the top as Leoluca DiCarlo (Intrepid) and Ethan Chan (Intrepid Kart) were right in the mix.

As the laps wound down, Di Carlo passed Di Leo a number of times, but Di Leo would counter the move on the following lap each time. With two laps to go, DiCarlo was hung on the outside on corner five and was left to battle with Chan for second place as Di Leo snuck away.

While DiCarlo would cross the finish line in second place, just behind Di Leo, he was relegated back to third place after making contact with Chan when he passed him on the final lap.

In the wet weather conditions, it was only DiCarlo and Di Leo duking it out for the win and it came right down to the finish line.

After trading the lead a number of times, it was a back and forth race for the win on the final lap. DiCarlo tried everything on that final lap and with a good run up the hill to the final corner the two were almost wheel to wheel. Coming over the hump, DiCarlo climbed up the back of Di Leo and lost all his momentum just before the finish line.

Di Leo scored the win and completed the unbeaten Cup Karts season to become champion while Di Carlo wound up second. More than five seconds adrift, Chan crossed in third.
