A positive weekend at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières helped Daniel Morad increase his lead atop the standings in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada.

He kicked off the GP3R on the wrong foot, as his championship rival Scott Hargrove raced past him with a bold overtake down turn 6 to win on Saturday. "It was an aggressive move," the Toronto native complained in a press release. "I didn't think there was any space, and there wasn't." In the end, he hung on to second place, salvaging a one-point lead. Shaun McKaigue completed the podium.

On Sunday, Morad made the most of a mistake by Hargrove to grab a 13-point advantage.

The pair was racing through traffic when Hargrove made contact with Martin Harvey. The incident damaged his car and cost him a penalty, dropping him to eighth place in the provisional results. "The team gave me an amazing car, a perfect car," Morad commented. "Yesterday we missed it a little bit. We just kept calm and made a fine adjustment, dialled that thing to perfection." Reigning champion Chris Green and Zacharie Robichon joined Morad on the podium.
