PR: DMR Motorsport Impresses at PPKC Memorial Shootout with Three Drivers in the Top-Five

In their inaugural season of competition, DMR Motorsport continues to score solid results at important events across Eastern Canada. Next on the agenda was the Point Pelee Karting Club Memorial Shootout in Leamington, Ontario on July 6, a big money shootout in Ontario’s most southern region.

Sending three of their DMR prepared FA Karts to the event, team manager Derek Michaud was confident in his team of drivers that included David Patrick, Matt Abram and the late addition of hotshot young gun Grant Quinlan.

Quinlan wasted no time getting up to speed in his FA machine, showing on Saturday evening that he would be the one with a target on his back as the pacesetter.

The unique event for Briggs & Stratton LO206 Senior drivers featured a full field of 23 drivers and all three drivers placed themselves up front all race day long.

Through the first two heat races, DMR karts ranked first, fourth and seventh entering the $1500.00 winner take all Final, with Quinlan on pole, Patrick fourth and Abram seventh.

Quinlan led a majority of the first 10-lap stint of the Final with Patrick holding strong in third. Regrouping at the 10-lap mark for a 5-lap dash, Quinlan immediately jumped to the lead on the restart. Leading every lap coming to the last lap, Quinlan managed all he could to defend his position but would be forced wide in corner one, surrendering the lead and falling back to third. Unable to battle back, he would settle for the third step of the podium with DMR teammates Patrick and Abram finishing right behind him and completing the podium.

The busy season continues next weekend when DMR Motorsport will send three drivers to the third round of the Coupe du Quebec Championship at SRA Karting. Immediately following the event, DMR Motorsport will focus on two weekends at Goodwood Kartways near Stouffville, Ontario. First for the TRAK/BSRKC event and then for the second round of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship at Goodwood Kartways on June 27-29.

Derek Michaud, Team Manager – DMR Motorsport
“The more races we do, the better knowledge we are getting on the chassis. At every event this season we continue to be at the front, now we just need that extra luck for our first win. We are looking forward to the Coupe du Quebec this coming weekend at SRA when Alex Healy and Miles Smith join the team and will be aiming for podiums along with myself.

I have to thank Dale Bonham and Marc Stehle for their support of the team, helping ensure our kart could attend the event.”
