Chris Green earns second-straight victory.

Sainte-Croix, Quebec. Key Motorsport dominated the second round of the Hankook Championship from start to finish at Sainte-Croix Raceway today. Chris Green, of Beaconsfield (Qc) grabbed the pole position earlier today during qualifying and piloted the #99 Key Motorsport's car to his second-straight win, giving him a perfect record to date in the 2002 Hankook FF1600 Championship.

Antoine Bessette, of Saint-Bruno (Qc), drove his Key Motorsport #16 Van Diemen to second place in his first Formula Ford 1600 race, after qualifying 4th.

The team's third driver Dennis S. Yasar, also running his first race, took the fourth spot.

Chris Green commented:

"This is the best way for me to start the season, the win says a lot for Key Motorsport". He continued, "Everyone on the team works very hard, it's a group effort and I think we've done well to be ahead of so many cars in the class. It's a good feeling and I'm confident we're going to have a successful season."

Antoine Bessette commented on his first Formula Ford race and his second place finish; "The car was perfect. Once again it is the great preparation that the entire Key Motorsport team does that gives us results like this," Bessette said. "The car was very reliable for me and I had no problems. Even thought this track was relatively easy, I really had a blast driving it."

Third Key Motorsport driver Dennis S. Yasar was also very happy about his fourth place;

"I just went out there and put my head down, and drove my heart out. I am really satisfied with the result, knowing I started 12th in the qualifying/race."

"With changing weather conditions, it was quite a challenge to find the right set-up and gearing. Furthermore, it was our first time out at this track. All three drivers did a magnificent job on the track" said chief mechanic Eric Côte.

The next round of the Hankook FF1600 Championship will be held in Saint-Eustache on June 30. In the meantime, Key Motorsport will be preparing the cars for the prestigious National Formula Ford 1600 race that will be held during the Montreal Grand-Prix week-end, from June 7-9, 2002.
