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.

Last years ECKC Briggs & Stratton Senior class champion Jonathon Treadwell (VRS/K&K Kart) continued right where he left off last season as a great day on track resulted in him earned another victory in ECKC competition.

Treadwell qualified on the pole, but fell to Derek Michaud (DMR/FA Kart) in the prefinal as the 25-strong Briggs & Stratton Senior class put on a great show.

Michaud jumped out to the lead entering corner one, but a brave pass by Charlotte Lalonde (Margay) for the lead entering turn two would end the race for both of them prematurely.

This opened the door for Michael Glaze (TonyKart) and Kyle Edgar (Birel) to take the lead with Tommy Lemaire-Ouellet (PSL/CRG) and Treadwell in tow.

Lemaire attempted to pass Edgar in corner five at midway, but the two made contact and both fell down the order, creating two-kart race for the win.

Treadwell went to the lead the next time by and from there he held off the high pressure that Glaze put on him to earn the victory. With Glaze on the second step of the podium, Bailey Jacobs (Gold Kart) completed the top-three. Marc Stehle (TonyKart) was fourth and Cody Fenton (CRG) fifth.
