We are very excited to announce that Canadian Stuart Clark has signed to join Blanchet Motorsports for a season in the Canadian Touring Car Championship for 2014. As many know, Clark was the winner of our inaugural CKN contest last summer to put a kart racer into a Blanchet Motorsports CTCC Honda Civic SI car and through a testing day at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.
The test day was very impressive and throughout the winter Clark and Blanchet Motorsports worked very hard to make a deal happen and to have Clark part of a team that will be seeking their third straight championship.
Stuart Clark, a native of Milton, Ontario, enjoyed another excellent karting season on track in 2013 where he claimed the Canadian Championship, Eastern Canadian Karting Championship and the SKUSA SuperNationals title in the Rotax DD2 Masters division aboard a Maranello Kart on team Maranello North America. A stout trio of accomplishments to say the least.
“I’m very happy to finally confirm that I will be racing cars this year, it is a dream come true,” explained Clark when we reached out to him. “It has been great working with Blanchet Motorsports since the first test day and I’m really looking forward to the upcoming season and chasing the third straight championship for the team.”
Joining the CTCC grid for 2014 does not mean that Clark is moving on from karts just yet. He still has plans to compete in the ECKC and Canadian Championships along a selection of hand picked events as well.
Already on track in 2014 in his new Blanchet Motorsports Civic SI, Clark has his eyes on the title and we wish him the best of luck!
For 2014, along with Blanchet Motorsports we have intentions to run a contest to place another Canadian kart racer in a CTCC touring car for a testing day.
