On a very cold and windy day at Mosport International Karting for the first race of the 2014 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship, those in attendance who braved the weather were rewarded with some excellent racing in all classes.

Thomas Nepveu (SH Racing/FA Kart) started the day strong as he took the pole in qualifying for Rotax Micro-Max by almost half a second quicker than second place Jeremy Tallon (KMS/Birel) and Gianluca Savaglio (Goodwood/Intrepid) in third.

In the Prefinal Nepveu took the lead going into turn one but wasn’t able to break from the field as Tallon and Savaglio were close behind. The three battled throughout the race and left the rest of the field behind. Once the chechered flag came out it was Savaglio who got the win at the line just 0.062 seconds ahead of the Nepveu in second.

The Final was a different story as Nepveu had an engine malfunction putting him off the pace from the get go. Therefore the race became a head-to-head battle  between Savaglio and Tallon. Savaglio held the lead for the opening laps but five Laps in Tallon took over the top spot. After numerous lead changes between the two Tallon took the lead for good with two laps remaining and was able to hold off Savaglio. William Michaud (PSL/CRG) quietly ran a great race to finish third followed by Justin Arseneau (PSL/CRG), Liam Rhodes (REM/Birel), Anthony Sardellitti (Goodwood/Intrepid), Nepveu and Dale Curran (Goodwood/Intrepid).
