Quebec Cup: Exciting victory for Pier-Luc Ouellette in Rotax DD2
The start of the Rotax DD2 final saw pole-sitter Jesse Lazare (SH Karting/TonyKart) jump out to an early lead, while Pier-Luc Ouellette (PSL Karting/CRG) was able to muscle his way to second through the opening set of corners, with Alessandro Bizzoto (PSL Karting/CRG), Daniel Burkett (GBR/LH Kart) and Dominic Legrand (CRG) rounding out the top five. The front five would battle hard in the opening stages as Ouellette tried everything to get around Lazare, with the other three waiting for something to happen.
By the midway point, Lazare was able to open up a lead with Ouellette and Burkett doing their best to keep up. However the lead wouldn’t last for Lazare and as he faded in the closing laps, it allowed Ouellette to take the lead entering the long back straight-away. Doing is best to try and re-take the position entering corner fifteen on the outside, Lazare would slide off track, throwing up a tonne of dust and allowing Burkett to take hold of second. Ouellette would then hold on for victory, with Burkett taking second and Lazare rebounding for third.
