Pier-Luc Ouellette almost get the fastest time, finishing first in his group and second overall
Drivers had two 15-minute practice sessions today to get used to their chassis and find the right set-ups for tomorrow’s qualifying session. Remember that most of the drivers here are racing on a kart they never drove before and they all have to use the same equipment.
Plus Intrepid Canada Pan American Rotax Max Challenge report
Though it seems the summer season in Canadian racing has just begun, the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship reached its halfway point on Sunday as the Rotax masses were contesting six classes at PSL Karting Trois-Rivieres. An even one hundred were on hand for race number three following a practice day Friday and a round of the Quebec Cup on Saturday.
PSL Karting ECKC Goodwood report

The joint forces of PSL, PSL Atlantic, PSL Ontario, and the newly-minted PSL Montreal combined to race 27-strong in the opening event, and the group scored five poles, five wins and fourteen podiums in a weekend doubleheader.
Return on an unbelievable Sunday
As you already know, yesterday was a wonderful day for Team Canada when Scott Campbell and Daniel Morad won the world title in their category. Because of the short time we had at the end of this long Sunday to prepare our daily report, we prepared a longer one today with more details.
End of the prelimary round
Today was very important for the drivers at the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals. Drivers had to race in their third and last heat race and, for those who will not qualify directly for the final round, in the Second chance race in the Rotax Max Junior, Rotax Max and DD2 classes.
Drivers had to race in two qualifying heats today. Like yesterday, some of our drivers had a good day, some others not. In the Junior class, Nicholas Latifi continued his good job when he got a 6th and a 4th place finish. For Garett Grist, he must battle a lot in every heat because the competition in the middle of the pack is crazy.
Two Canadian on pole!
The day was very special for Team Canada for many reasons. We will first start with the good news. Scott Campbell got the pole in the DD2 Masters class, being the only driver with a laptime under 50 seconds while Luc Sauriol took the 10th spot. In the DD2 class, Daniel Morad was just unbelievable on the track when he entered the track on the last session of the day and had to drive under the spotlights!
