Trenton Estep’s run of dominance in the Formula Tour 1600 continued Saturday and Sunday, as part of the Canadian Grand Prix at the circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
The Exclusive Autosport driver, who had won the first three races of the season last month in Mont-Tremblant, added two wins to his tally over a flawless week-end in Montréal.
Estep, a former karting champion, climbed on the top step of the podium Saturday by beating veteran Michel Bonnet and Nissan Micra Cup champion Olivier Bédard, who fought hard with the rest of the field to earn a place inside the top-3. Title-holder Jean-Philippe Jodoin overcame a difficult start and was fighting for a podium finish early on, but spun out of contention.
Sunday, Estep beat Michael Adams and Bédard again, amid a chaotic finish that saw Bonnet lose a wheel and take Max Mallinen down with him. Although shaken, both drivers walked away from the incident.
The action resumes July 2-3 at circuit ICAR, where the Formula Tour 1600 will share the track with the NASCAR Pinty’s Series.
