Nepveu Remains On Top in Micro-Max; Michael d’Orlando Wins Mini Max Heat 3

Saturday concluded the heat racing portion of the 2014 ASN Canada FIA Canadian Karting Championships as all classes returned to the track for their third and final heat race, with points tallied to set the grids for Sunday’s National Championship Finals.

It was a relaxed day at the Jim Russell Karting Academy in Mont-Tremblant held under sunny skies as the anticipation built for Sunday.

The day was completed by the Team Cup rental kart race where each team nominated two “non-drivers” to compete in a 10-lap dash. With the crowd on their feet, Team KMS came away with the victory over Team Energy Kart Canada and Team PSL Karting. It was a great way to cap off the day.

Micro Max

Heat 3
In Micro Max it was a three kart battle for first throughout the heat and the first time that Thomas Nepveu (SH Racing/FA Kart) would be challenged thus far this weekend. He was hounded all race long by Gianluca Savaglio (Intrepid) and Justin Arseneau (PSL Karting/CRG). Even though Savaglio and Arseneau were right behind the SH racing driver they were not able to pass him for the lead as they stayed in the same positions throughout the heat. Patrick Woods-Toth (PSL Montreal/CRG) finished the heat in fourth ahead of Liam Rhodes (REM/Birel) who completed the top five.
