The undefeated get defeated!
Vincec, Champagne and Labbe put an end to all undefeated streaks
MOSPORT, ONTARIO -- With just two rounds left of the Sunoco Ron Fellows Karting Championship presented by Toronto Star Wheels, three drivers -- Daniel Morad, Pearce Herder and Marco Di Leo -- were looking to keep their undefeated seasons in tact at Mosport, site of round 5 of the series. By Sunday afternoon, there were no undefeated drivers left.
"This shows just how competitive this series is," Daniel Morad, one of the unseated drivers said. Stouffville's Micheal Vincec was the dominant Junior driver in round five, as he not only stopped Morad's streak in Formula Junior, he also won the Rotax Max Junior race. Quebec's Alex Labbe also played spoiler, as he stopped the winning streak of Pearce Herder in Canada Junior Heavy. The final undefeated streak belonged to Marco Di Leo, in Rotax Max Senior, and Matt Champagne handed Di Leo his first defeat of the season. Champagne opted for dry tires on the drying, but wet track and he simply motored off into the distance, lapping up to 8th spot.
Other junior class winners were Cory Luciano led Canada Junior Light, and Kevin Monteith clean swept his second straight World Formula Junior race. In the Senior ranks, Mike Roth clean swept the Formula Senior class, which kept him atop the points standings going into the final round. Adriano Bilotta won World Formula Senior, while Jennifer Rempel won Canada Senior Heavy, and Rob Oakman won Canada Senior Light.
The Pratt & Miller Team Spirit Award, which awards teams that are judged to exhibit the highest levels of teamwork in the areas of presentation, preparation and results. The award this round went to the Gold Kart Team of Lon Herder. The Gold Team has worked hard on the appearance of their karts and drivers this year, and now it has paid off with this coveted team award.
The GM Racing Winner's Circle Award, which goes to a driver judged to have displayed outstanding competition skills and sportsmanship, was awarded to Leamington's Jennifer Rempel, who had problems in the Canada Senior Heavy pre-final that sent her to the back of the grid for the final. Rempel put on a great drive to win the final.
