ECKC: Jeff Kingsley Seeks Retribution in Rotax DD2 on Sunday

The Eastern Canadian Karting Championship hit the halfway mark of it’s 2014 campaign with the completion of race #4 on Sunday at Goodwood Kartways. It was another hot and sticky day at the facility just north of Toronto, Ontario with high grip levels challenging all competitors.

After a tough start and on track battles kept Jeffrey Kingsley (PSL Karting/CRG) from earning the result he wanted a day earlier, but he was back on Sunday seeking revenge and a return to the top of the Rotax DD2 podium.

Split apart from the DD2 Masters for Sunday’s action, Kingsley was the fastest in Qualifying and easily cruised in the prefinal to assume the position.

A scary start to the Final saw front row starter Brendon Bain (Prime/Maranello) crash hard into the corner one barriers. A brief red flag was thrown to ensure Bain was okay, but the incident claimed victim to two of the nine karts on grid, making DD2 even smaller.

The restart was much cleaner with Kingsley jumping to the early lead with Milan Dontje (PSL Karting/CRG) and Saturday winner Fred Woodley (Prime/Maranello) in tow.

Lap two saw the retirement of Alessandro Bizzotto for the second straight day with technical issues. A very disappointing end to a promising weekend for Bizzotto.

Back on track, Kingsley was driving away from Dontje, while Max Preston (Goodwood/Intrepid) found his way by Woodley for third and that set the tone for the remaining laps as Kingsley became the first repeat DD2 winner of the year, Dontje earned a second Sunday podium and Preston scored his first DD2 trophy.

With just over a month until the next ECKC event, drivers have plenty of time to prepare for the very challenging streets of Trois-Rivieres, Quebec as the temporary street circuit hosts races five and six on August 1-3.
