“All in all it was a great weekend for the REM team. I would like to congratulate all drivers under the tent for a great ECKC Season, especially Corey and Gab for bringing REM its first ECKC championships. With the pace our drivers have right now, I believe we will have a great chance to win in all classes at the ASN Canadian National Championships next month.” Kevin Monteith – REM Team Manager
