ECKC: Pier-Luc Ouellette controls Rotax DD2 pre-final
After the first start was waved off and restarted, the Rotax DD2 pre-final was finally under way with Pier-Luc Ouellette (PSL Karting/CRG) getting a nice push from his brother Hugo Ouellette (PSL Karting/CRG) to lead the way. Forced wide on the exit on one, Ben Cooper (SRA Karting/Birel) fell back to fourth behind Brendan Bain (Prime/Maranello).
The quadrant quickly broke away, but no positions were shuffled until the final two laps, when Cooper first made his way by Bain, then by Ouellette. This allowed PLO to pull away and take the heat victory, with Cooper taking second. Brendan Bain was able to get by Hugo on the final lap to take third. Christophe Boisclair made a nice recovery to take fifth.
Plenty of action in the pre-final, it’s going to be a great final!
