It wasn’t easy, but Thomas Nepveu completed the perfect season, scoring two victories at Mosport Kartways to win all seven ECKC races this year and with it, the title too. He becomes the first driver to undefeated in all of the ECKC races in a season.
On Saturday, Nepveu was lights out in the Final. He had to fend off Dale Curran in the PreFinal, but was unchallenged in the Final en route to six-second win. Curran was managing the second spot until engine woes on the final lap took him out of contention and unfortunately Chloe Chambers was caught up in an accident trying to work around the slowing kart of Curran.
That opened up the podium to Gianluca Savaglio who finished second and Justin Arseneau to finish third.
Tight racing on Sunday saw Curran, Chambers and Nepveu finish only 0.074 seconds apart in the Prefinal with Curran on top at the line and Nepveu third.
But that would be as close as it got as Nepveu only needed to hold off Savaglio in the Final to secure perfection, celebration with a ‘dab’ as he crossed the finish line. Curran completed the race podium and joined his teammate Justin Arseneau on the championship podium alongside Nepveu.
