Race #3 for the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship hit the track of a packed house at Goodwood Kartways on Saturday. A race day full of action wreaked havoc on many competitors, opening the top of the podium for some new drivers, while others continued to dominate.
There is something to say about the form of young Gianfranco Mazzaferro (Ferrolati Corse/TonyKart) thus far in 2014. The driver from Montreal, Quebec has simply been unstoppable this season and Saturday at Goodwood was no different.
First he set a new Rotax Junior track record in qualifying, posting a time that would be fit him nicely into the Rotax Senior grid.
From there he drove a flawless prefinal and with the exception of a battle of backmarkers that wouldn’t obey the blue flag, Mazzaferro was untouched in the Final en route to his third ECKC victory in as many races.
Not to be left out, Cedrik Lupien (SH Racing/FA Kart) drove a great race and almost had an opportunity to pass for the lead when Mazzaferro was held up. He wound up second with Roman DeAngelis (Kosmic) scoring his second podium of his rookie season. Alex Lacroix (SH Racing/FA Kart) was fourth and Nataël Cantin (KMS North America/Birel) fifth at the stripe.
