Saturday evening, November 4th, at Syracuse NY took place the 'Empire Super Sprints' Banquet as Alain Bergeron and his team received all the honors after Bergeron had a great 2006 season catching up the top position of the ESS series standing.

A very impressive record of 7 top 3, 11 top 5 et 19 top 10 have allowed Bergeron to become the very first Canadian to be Champion of the Empire Super Sprints series that was at its 23rd season.

At the Banquet, Alain Bergeron was honored for the following titles:


     2006 ESS Tour Champion
     2006 Spectro Canadian Invasion Champion
     2006 Most Improved Driver

And the evening was not ended because Hugo St-Germain, the long-time Alain Bergeron's associate was honored by his peers by receiving the title of ' Mecanic of the year'. An honor well deserved for St-Germain who contributed to the successes of the Saint Pie's driver. Hugo is beside Alain Bergeron since his debuts in ESS Sprints in 2000 and in Mini-Sprints previously.
