It was a very challenging weekend for the DMR Motorsport team at the most recent round of the 2014 Eastern Canadian Karting Championship. Competing at the Goodwood Kartways Circuit just north of Toronto, Ontario, six DMR FA Karts took to the track, all still seeking the first victory for the new team that has come so close this season.
New to the team for the event was Briggs & Stratton points leader Michael Glaze along with Steven Szigeti, a past national champion in the Rotax Senior category. Fresh off his first weekend with the team, David Miller was also in attendance with the team plus team manager Derek Michaud. All four drivers tackled the incredibly close Briggs & Stratton Senior class.
In Briggs Masters, Greg Jewell and Shane Findlay flew the DMR blue and white.
While the event put the FA Karts to the test on the very sticky yet fast Goodwood circuit, the team was still able to earn a solid array of results.
Greg Jewell capitalized on Sunday to stand on the podium in second place while his Masters teammate Findlay was fourth on Saturday.
In the 29 driver strong Briggs Senior, Glaze just nearly missed the podium with a fourth place run on Saturday with Michaud two positions behind him in sixth.
Szigeti showed great speed throughout the weekend, but some tough luck hampered him on earning the results he deserved. Miller was also very quick but he too didn’t score the results he was hoping for.
With a mid-season break before the next round of the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship, which is paired with the Coupe du Quebec at the famous Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres street race, DMR will take some time to test and prepare for very busy final sprint of the season which includes two ECKC/Coupe du Quebec events along with the Canadian National Championships.
Derek Michaud, Team Manager – DMR Motorsport:
“Yes we struggled that weekend, but we worked very hard to finish where we did. Saturday we had good results but Sunday was a hard day. We didn’t get the results we wanted, but that just makes us want to work that much harder to get the results we want. We are confident for the next race at Trois-Rivieres as we have figured out our struggles, now we just got to capitalize on them and win races, which I’m confident that we can do.”
