Nepveu Continues to Dominate in Mini-Max; Wins Fifth Straight

There is only one driver to remain unbeaten in 2016 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship competition following round three in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.

Mini-Max driver Thomas Nepveu continued his Sunday dominance of the category, taking two more victories, bringing his season total to five, and taking a stranglehold on the championship race.

In Final 1, Nepveu broke out to an early lead in wet conditions. However his pace late in the race was a tad bit slower than the hard charging Justin Arseneau, who closed onto the rear bumper of Nepveu with two laps to go, really putting on the pressure as the last lap sign emerged.

Nepveu remained calm and defended his position on the entry to the slower corners, forcing Arseneau to back out any time he made a run. Unable to overtake on the final lap, Arseneau settled for second once again this year as Nepveu beat him to the finish line while Dale Curran completed the podium.


Back on slick tires for Final 2, Nepveu led every lap for the second straight race to confirm the double-victory by four-seconds. Arseneau had another charge through the field to finish second, holding off Chloe Chambers, who posted the fastest lap of the race, in the closing laps while Curran finished fourth.

With only one stop left on the ECKC tour, Nepveu will look to close out the perfect season at Mosport Kartways in three weeks time at the championship finale.
