ECKC: Thrilling victory and Championship for Marco Di Leo in Rotax Senior

After an incident in the pre-final for his only championship contender Steven Szigeti (SH Karting/TonyKart), Marco Di Leo (Intrepid North America/Intrepid) went into the Final race today at Le Monaco de Trois Rivieres breathing a little easier knowing the championship was in his hands. However this didn’t stop Di Leo from seeking the top step on the podium.

In a thrilling race that featured an excellent 3-kart battle for the lead, Di Leo was able to fend off American Andrew Palmer (J3 Competition/Kosmic) and Luke Chudleigh (Prime/Maranello) to score his fourth victory of the ECKC season, and earn his third straight ECKC Rotax Senior Championship.

Palmer was able to take Chudleigh with two laps to go to finish second. A brilliant race by Maxime Couturier (SH Karting/TonyKart) rewarded him with a fourth place result, with Marc-Andre Levesque (SH Karting/TonyKart) rebounding from contact with the chicane barrier to finish fifth.

The Championship podium saw Di Leo on top, earning a trip to the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals, Steven Szigeti second and Luke Chudleigh third.
