Drivers and teams returned to Mosport International Karting for race two of the 2013 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. The weather was very much the same as Saturday’s competition where a mixture of rain and sun and heavy winds played havoc on everyone in attendance.
A trio of TonyKarts led the way in Rotax Mini-Max Qualifying on Sunday as Saturday winner Antonio Serravalle (PSerra Racing) once again posted the fastest time under dry conditions with Tommy Simard and JP Hutchinson (Pserra Racing) while Thierry Cote (PSL Karting/CRG) and Joe Soranno (Karts & Parts/LH Kart) rounded out the top five.
Antonio Serravalle (Pserra Racing/Tonykart) was on pole in Mini max for the second day in a row ahead of Tommy Simard (TonyKart) and JP Hutchinson (Pserra Racing/TonyKart). Thierry Cote (PSL Karting/CRG) was fourth in the session ahead of Joe Soranno (Karts & Parts/LH Kart).
Serravalle was in cruise control in the Pre Final going flag to flag for the heat win with Hutchinson and Simmard swapping their start positions for the Final.
Under wet conditions for the Final, Serravalle took the hole shot, with Hutchinson keeping close to his bumper. Waiting for lap three, Hutchinson went to the lead in corner five and from there posted the fastest laps of the race en route to victory. Serravalle held station to take second while Cote was able to grab the final podium position.
The series now shifts to Goodwood Kartways on June 28-30 for races three and four. As Goodwood is the host for the Canadian Championships, there should be another great turnout of karters as many will utilize the time to prepare.
