Estep, the driver of the No. 90 Australian-built Spectrum car manufactured by Borland Racing Developments, turned out to be almost unbeatable this season in the Formula 1600 series. A driver of the mighty Exclusive Autosports team, the San Antonio, Texas resident was simply in a different league at the Mont-Tremblant Circuit for the final three rounds of the year. He captured three pole positions and three wins to conclude the season on a high note.

Race 1

Trenton Estep won the 15-lap race with an advantage of 18.2 seconds over Roman De Angelis (Piper DL7 014) and Andre Castro (Spectrum), with the latter two battling it out fiercely up until the chequered flag. Jean-Philippe Jodoin (Mygale 014) arrived home in fourth place.

Race 2

Driving the wheels off his Honda-powered Spectrum, Estep easily won race 2 of the meeting. In the process, Estep set the fastest lap of the race, a full second quicker than the second best time. He crossed the line 14 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Andre Castro. Jean-Philippe Jodoin finished third, 16 seconds behind the winner but just ahead of Will Harvey (Spectrum) and Roman De Angelis who pushed him hard until the end. Veteran Didier Schraenen clinched sixth place in his CMV.

Race 3

Estep started the race from pole position and captured his third win of the meeting, defeating Roman De Angelis, Andre Castro and Jean-Philippe Jodoin.

The winner of 12 of the 17 rounds, Estep easily captured the title of the 2016 Formula Tour 1600 Series with an impressive score of 384 points. Jodoin ranked second with 276 points, followed by De Angelis (261) and Didier Schraenen (152).
