The second half of the double-header weekend at Mosport International Karting featured much nicer weather conditions for the opening round of the 2014 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. With the rumble of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series roaring by on the CTMP track, Sunday was full of octane at the entire Mosport facility including excellent kart racing.

Leading much of Saturdays Final, Zachary Claman DeMelo (ZCD/Intrepid) came up just short of the victory as an attempted last lap pass allowed Christophe Paquet (PSL/CRG) to sneak through and take the win.

Sunday was a much different story as DeMelo sought redemption. Zacharie Scalzo (KGK/TonyKart) qualified on the pole-position with DeMelo second. However

DeMelo was easily able to grab the lead and win the prefinal.

A great start by DeMelo in the Final was all he needed as a good jump created a cushion as Scalzo and Kevin Monteith (REM/Birel) fought for second. Never looking back, DeMelo checked out on his competition immediately, en route to the victory.

Monteith and Scalzo exchanged the second position often in the race but contact on the final corner allowed Paquet to sneak through and finish second at the line as Marco Signoretti (Energy Kart Canada) was caught up in the melee and cost him a top-five finish. Scalzo limped by to finish third followed by Coltin McCaughan (CKN/SH Racing/FA Kart) and Monteith.

Round two of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship will be held at Goodwood Kartways near Stouffville, Ontario on June 27-29.
