Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres: Zachary Claman DeMelo Unreachable in Rotax Senior

Back in action on the temporary street circuit in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship and Coupe du Quebec completed their next-t0-last events of the season on Sunday under hot and overcast skies.

The story in Rotax Senior was the repeat performance of Saturday’s Final. Zachary Claman DeMelo (ZCD-Goodwood/Intrepid) was untouchable en route to completing the weekend sweep, as he qualified on the pole, won the PreFinal then created a gap in the early stages of the Final before pulling away to victory. With the pair of wins, DeMelo now has five out of six victories in ECKC competition this year and enters the season finale next month with the championship all but wrapped up.

The Final race started with a frenzy into corner one as Anthony Tolfa was sent airborne and karts around him scattered to avoid his TonyKart. But the race would settle down from there, with the circuit only claiming a few victims.

The race for second saw Tommy Lemaire-Ouellet (PSL Karting/CRG) and Christophe Paquet (KCR Karting/CRG) go head to head in a race featuring two Coupe du Quebec contenders. Lemaire ultimately got the job done to earn the second step on the podium after a pass two laps remaining.

Coltin McCaughan (CKN-SH Racing/FA Kart) recovered from a rocky start to the day to finish fourth with Olivier Bedard (PSL Karting/CRG) fifth. Marco Signoretti (Energy Kart Canada/Energy Kart), Kevin Monteith (REM/Birel), Didier Carre (KMS/Birel), Anthony Tolfa (Pserra/TonyKart) and Dave LaPlante (SH Racing/FA Kart) rounded out the top-ten.
