ST-ROCH-DE-L'ACHIGAN (August 21, 2012) - Team SRA and its drivers are ready to tackle the karting event of the year in Canada. Whether to claim the title of Canadian Champion or to obtain a spot at the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Final, the SRA Birel drivers are ready to give everything they’ve got this weekend at the Mont-Tremblant track.

In the Rotax Jr class, SRA have five aspiring drivers for the world final in Olivier Bédard, Nicolas Doré, Jeffrey Kingsley, Cédrick Lupien and Allan Moreau. They have all achieved excellent results in 2012, so the battle could be very interesting!

In Rotax Sr, Philippe Harbour will take part in the event, having won the first race of the Coupe du Québec last May. Harbour will be one of the drivers to watch. Bryce Choquer winner of the Western Canadian Championship will also be on the starting grid wearing SRA Karting colors.

This will be the last opportunity for Christophe Boisclair and Zacharie Robichon to try and qualify for the Grand Final in the DD2 class. The SRA trio, composed of these two drivers, along with Ben Cooper who will most surely put on quite a show at Tremblant.

In Mini-Max, Natael Cantin is in a good position to claim the highest step of the podium. Lately, he has shown the quality of his skills by winning a spectacular race at the “Petit Monaco” held in the town of Trois-Rivières. Samuel Lupien, who often finds himself in the lead pack and is very quick, will also be a driver to watch. Adams Lessard, who has recently been doing a lot of lapping at the track in Tremblant, will assuredly give SRA a good showing at his first Canadian Championship.

Finally, in Micro-Max, two SRA drivers, William Chayer and Tommy Simard, have good reason to aspire to the Canadian Champion title, having obtained numerous podiums over the course of the 2012 season.

Results will be posted on the Mylaps website http://www.mylaps.com/index.jsp and on the SRA Karting Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/SRAkarting
