The Rotax Mini-Max class has been dominated this weekend by Thierry Cote (CRG West/CRG). The Quebec driver teamed up with CRG West for this weekends event and after dominating Friday and Saturdays competition, he continued his impressive form on Sunday, simply driving away from his competition in the Prefinal and Final. The two wins today means Cote went unbeaten all weekend long en route to being crowned 2013 Western Canadian Championship Mini-Max Champion.

The battle for second wasn’t much of a battle as Griffin Dowler (Apollo/TonyKart) raced much on his own on Sunday. In the opening laps of Final, Dowler looked to have the pace to keep up with Cote, but as the laps ticked off in the 18-lap Final Dowler just couldn’t keep up with Cote.

Stephan Bachalo (KGR/TonyKart) did his best to recover after trouble on the opening lap sent him down the order. Working his way back forward, Bachalo moved into fourth after Naila Deen (CRG West/CRG) spun off in the final corner with only a couple laps left. Then, making a great move by Carson Vogel (BBR/TonyKart) allowed Bachalo to move into third and onto the Championship podium.
