Great Quebec Cup Action at Mont Tremblant
 


The chase for Québec Cup top honors resumed on Sunday (July 15), with some entertaining action via Round Four at Circuit Karting Mont Tremblant.

In DD2, Jesse Lazare (SH Karting/TonyKart) led the way early on, converting the pole position into a multi-kart advantage over Pier-Luc Ouellette (PSL Karting/CRG), Alessandro Bizzoto (PSL Karting/CRG), Daniel Burkett (GBR/LH Kart) and Dominic Legrand (CRG). With the chasing pack dueling for second through fifth, it appeared as though Lazare would score a comfortable win. It was not to be, however, as the Quebec native's kart faded as the race went on, allowing Ouellette to not only close the gap, but also pass for the lead. Lazare tried to respond, but he briefly slid off-course, ensuring the two-time World Champion was victorious. Taking the checkered flag behind Ouellette were Burkett, the recovered Lazare, Legrand, and Bizzoto.

Mikel Pelletier (SH Karting/TonyKart) was the racer to watch in Senior. The Quebec driver, having started from the pole, held off an early charge from Luke Chudleigh (Prime/Maranello). From that point forward he never put a wheel wrong, steadily building an advantage over the field. In the end, Pelletier completed the weekend sweep (leading every session) with the victory over Josiane Plante. Hugo Parent completed the podium with a late pass of Chudleigh, while Maxime Couturier was fifth.

Zachary Claman DeMelo (ZCD/PSL/CRG) continued his Junior run of form at Mont Tremblant. Starting P1, the recent ECKC race winner made the most of a clear track to build a gap on his closest pursuers. Never coming under any threat of note, Claman DeMelo scored the win ahead of Jeffrey Kingsley (SRA Karting/Birel) and Nicholas Dore (SRA Karting/Birel). Samuel Fontaine (PSL Karting/CRG) initially challenged for a podium position, before crossing the line in fourth, leading Tommy Lamaire-Ouellet (PSL Karting/CRG).

Luc Sauriol regained his DD2 Masters winning ways on Sunday. The former Grand Finals Masters Champion used an early race pass for the lead to make his first visit to the top step of the podium in 2012. Dany St-Hilaire (Intrepid) emerged from a good dice for position in second, leading David Ivichek (MS Kart) to the stripe. Unfortunately for Ivichek, he was given a 10-second penalty for jumping the the start, promoting Thierry St-Onge to third. Michael Legrand completed the top-five.

The chase for Mini-Max top honors proved to be highly entertaining. While Gianfranco Mazzafero, having started second, ultimately came home with a comfortable win, behind him the action was heated. After multiple changes for position, Jeff Fulham was second to the flag, marginally ahead of Christophe Rizk. Stephen Bachalo just missed out on a podium finish after battling and beating Charles Deschenes.

In Micro-Max William Chayer (Birel) was the driver to beat the entire day. Right from the waving of the green flag he proved uncatchable, ultimately pulling away to a convincing win. Tommy Simard (Birel) and Andres De Alba (TonyKart) dueled for second place throughout the race, with Simard in the end taking the position. Julien Jones (CRG) and Thomas Nepveu (CRG) were next to the stripe in fourth and fifth.

The large 4-Stroke Senior field witnessed a crazy start, with multiple drivers sliding off-course. Nicholas Michaud (CRG), having avoided the chaos, took over the lead, ahead of Charlotte Lalonde (CRG). With drivers looking to regain lost positions from the start and fighting for space, the duo built a sizeable advantage on the chasing pack led by Steven Szigeti. The gap shrunk as the race progressed to the point Szigeti attacked for second, but subsequent contact with Lalonde sent Szigeti down the order. While Michaud was first to the checkered flag, post-race review by the stewards meant William Peters (Arrow), having crossed the line in second, was awarded the win over Vincent Cyr (Arrow). Michaud was classified third, ahead of Shawn Dos Santos and Lalonde.

The 2012 Quebec Cup continues on July 28, with Round Five as part of the Monaco de Trois-Rivières event.
