It was another beautiful day at Goodwood Kartways as the fourth race of the 2013 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship hit the track. Officially the largest entered event in ECKC history, it is great to see the series continue to grow, especially in the Briggs & Stratton divisions. With a more sunshine blazing down on the track, the action also heated up with many shake ups on the championship standings when all was said and done.
The Rotax DD2 Masters class continues to be dominated by Stuart Clark (Maranello North America/Maranello). Clark swept the day on Sunday at Goodwood to score his fourth victory of the season and to remain unbeaten.
Clark did have to work for Sundays victory as Luc Sauriol (PSL Karting/CRG) assumed the lead from the start that saw Clark moved back to third for two false starts. Martin Verville (Haase) then took the lead and held Clark at bay for a couple laps with Sauriol on their toes as well.
Finally moving to the lead on lap six, Clark resumed the point and began to pull away while Verville and Sauriol duked it out for second. As the laps ticked away, Francis Mondou (IPK Quebec/Ok1) joined the mix for second after starting at the rear, getting by Sauriol with two laps to go. But he just ran out of time and had to settle for third behind Clark and Verville at the finish.
Clark’s dominance all but secures another championship run as he prepares for round three in Trois Rivieres.
The series now shifts to the province of Quebec for remaining races. Round three will be held in conjunction with the Coupe du Quebec at Le Monaco de Trois Rivieres on August 1-4. This street race is a not miss for everyone.
