For its 14th edition, the Monaco de Trois-Rivières is proud to present Karting fans with a high intensity schedule of events, from July 26 to the 29, at the Terrain d’Exposition and July 28th in downtown Trois-Rivières.
Drivers from many Canadian provinces and eligible drivers from other countries are expected to participate.
The very exciting Rotax DD2 class will see the fight for the Eastern Canada Karting Championship title between the ultra-competitive driver Pierre-Luc Ouellet in his PSL GRG beside Christophe Boisclair and Ben Cooper in their SRA Birels. Pierre, Christophe and Ben all have winning histories at the annual Rotax Grand World Championships.
Who will emerge as the Rotax DD2 Champion? With only a fifty point difference between first and third place, competition will be tight! Be there to see!
To make things more interesting on Saturday July 28, the event will host the 6-speed Shifter category , nicknamed “The Formula One of Karting” due to the top speeds of 160 km/h that the Karts can reach. What makes this category unique is that it is the only category where the race features a standing start.

Festivities in Downtown Trois-Rivières
Le Monaco de Trois-Rivières will bring life to the downtown area! From 7 PM on, there will be numerous street performances along the Rue des Forges. These performances will be held as part of Saltare!, an initiative brought forth and presented by the Corporation de l’Amphithéâtre de Trois-Rivières.
There will also be a musical performance “Metallica en symphonie”, put together by the music program at l’Académie les Estacades and directed by Sébastien Lépine, the artistic director of the Orchestra. This performance, brought to you by the Corporation de l’Amphithéâtre de Trois-Rivières and Marmen, aims to recreate the show that Metallica played in San Francisco in 1999 with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. It will contain almost 60 students from the program as well as five musicians from Trois-Rivières. This free show will take place in the parc portuaire.
For those who love strange vehicles, there will be an exposition of modified vehicles during the l’Awside Tuning Show.
The event would like to thank its numerous partners, whom without their support this event would not have been possible.
Admission and Parking at The Monaco de Trois-Rivières are free.
