Quebec Cup: Jesse Lazare dominates in Rotax Senior
Twenty-six karts took to the ICAR Circuit today in the Rotax Senior class, and it was a thriller every time the group hit the track. However with all the excitement found throughout the field, there was one driver that stood out up front. Jesse Lazare (SH Karting/TonyKart) dominated the day’s action, sweeping the pole-position, pre-final and final.
Lazare led the field as the final was started, as his SH Karting teammate Marc-Andre Levesque (SH Karting/TonyKart) brought the outside line towards turn one. A bold move by Luke Chudleigh (Prime/Maranello) to the inside resulted in the him spinning around and facing the wrong direction as the remainder of the field piled into one. The incident would remove Steven Szigeti (SH Karting/TonyKart) and Alex Van Snick (PSL Atlantic/CRG).
As the first lap was complete, Lazare and Levesque were quickly able to break away, and although Marco Di Leo (Intrepid North America/Intrepid) looked to make a run at the lead two, it never happened.
Behind the front three, the battle for fourth was wild! Reid Arnold (Intrepid North America/Intrepid) and Bryson Schutte(Intrepid North America/Intrepid) were the first two to trade the spot. Then by the halfway point, Kevin Monteith (REM/Birel) and Fritz Leesman (PSL Atlantic/CRG) joined the duo after they both started at the rear. The quadrant bounced off each other, literally, with Monteith taking the spot as the checkered flag flew.
