Tackling the famous streets of Trois-Riveres, Quebec, DMR Motorsport recently took part in the annual Le Monaco de Trois-Riveres double-feature with team drivers competing against drivers from both the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship and Coupe du Quebec.
Michael Glaze and Derek Michaud entered their DMR-FA Karts into the Briggs & Stratton Senior category, while Greg Jewell was in the Briggs & Stratton Masters class.
Highlighting the team results was a spirited drive by Glaze to claim the second step of the podium on Saturday. Running in third and fourth through the entire final, some strategy with another driver helped him catch the leaders in the closing laps the move to second before the checkered flag flew, the first podium of the season for Glaze while competing with DMR.
Michaud found himself battling inside the top-10 of the very deeply talented Briggs Senior class, where he finished with fifth and eighth place results.
Jewell showed great pace against the largest class of Briggs Masters this season, staying up front and ultimately earning fifth and seventh place results.
Next up on the schedule for DMR Motorsport is the premier event of the season, the ASN Canadian National Karting Championships in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. DMR will have a full house of Briggs & Stratton drivers, all vying for Canadian Championship glory.
Briggs Senior will see Glaze, Michaud, Alex Healy and Tyler Devlin do action, while Jewell will be joined by David Patrick in Briggs Masters. Additionally, Melissa Glaze and Joshua Conquer will join the team for support over the week-long event.
Derek Michaud, Team Manager of DMR Motorsport:
“We showed great potential at Le Monaco. All drivers were capable of winning, just needed that extra edge. Overall I’m very happy with the results we’ve been getting considering the competition that we have. That just encourages our team to work that much harder to get that win, and we are aiming for it at the Canadian Nationals. We are a hard working team, always trying to push for more, which eventually hard work will pay off. We are coming up full force at Nationals giving it all we got, we are very excited and can’t wait to start!”
