Eastern Canadian Karting Championship

PR: Five Victories for SH Racing at Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres

With the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship shifting to the province of Quebec for the third round of the championship, the SH Racing Team returned to their home province to compete in the double-header Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres event where SHR drivers would do battle for both the ECKC and Coupe du Quebec Championships. Once again the team had a full tent of drivers across a variety of classes and once again the SHR FA Karts were able to top their competition and leave the event with some victories.

In Rotax Junior the SHR squad has been very powerful all season long. This continued over at Le Monaco where Alex Lacroix swept the weekends Final races, just as he did a year ago. Lacroix launched himself back into the ECKC and Coupe du Quebec championships with the results and will now ride that momentum into the upcoming Canadian Championships.

Also in Junior, Cedrik and Samuel Lupien placed themselves at the front of the grid, with both drivers standing on the podium; Cedrik finishing second place on Saturday and Samuel doing the same on Sunday. Cedrik was in line for another podium finish until a broken chain ended his hopes in the Sunday Final.

In Micro-Max, Thomas Nepveu continued his dominance in the category, scoring another pair of wins to solidify his championship lead in both series. Nepveu cruised on Saturday, but on Sunday had to work hard for the win enjoying a challenging dual with a fellow competitor.

SHR scored their first win of the season in the Briggs & Stratton four-cycle division. After running a strategic race in the Final, Simon Belanger made a beautiful last lap pass to take the lead and score his first win of the season in an action packed class that featured another full grid of top-notch karters. Unfortunately Belanger wasn’t able to repeat on Sunday, but he has shown how fast the SHR package can be leading up to the Canadian Championships.

Rotax Senior driver Coltin McCaughan just missed the podium in both of his Final races, coming home in fifth-place on Saturday and stepping up a position with a fourth-place effort on Sunday.

With the street race now behind them, SH Racing is now preparing for the ASN Canadian National Karting Championships in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec. SHR will have a full race team for the event as they will be gunning for multiple Canadian titles at the popular Jim Russell Karting Circuit.

Finally, SH Racing sends their thoughts and prayers to Ayrton Climo and his family following his practice accident at Le Monaco de Trois-Rivieres. #KeepFightingAyrton

Sacha Gagnon, SH Racing Team Manager:
“It was a weekend full of emotion. Our drivers are really coming to grips with their FA Kart chassis and we are really proud of their performances in Trois-Rivieres. Now we look forward to getting on track in Mont-Tremblant and going after the Canadian titles!”
