Kevin Lacroix in quest of victory in Montreal
St-Eustache, Quebec, June 16th. -- With two podiums and a fourth place in three races since he entered the Star Mazda series, Kevin Lacroix comes to the Montreal round with the intention of earning his first victory this season steering the #74 Uniselect single seater. He direly wants to repeat his win of 2005 when he was racing a Formula BMW. Racing on Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve has a special meaning for the 17-year old French Canadian who lives a stone throw for the racetrack; now sixth in the standings, Lacroix is determined to move forward with another podium, and why not the first step!
"This is the first time I have a bit of an edge over most of the competitors, declared the rookie driver, because I raced here in 2005. I had to learn the other tracks so far this year and sometimes they was so much traffic it was hard to get a fast lap. I like this facility a lot and I think we will have a good setup when we take to the track Friday morning. We have to use all the speed we can get from the Uniselect car on the long stretches.
I have my work cut out for the rest of the season but racing twice in Quebec will be very exciting. For sure, I will enjoy every moment of the weekend since this is Quebec National Holiday.''
Friday and Saturday action
There will be a 40-minute free practice session on Friday morning at 8:45 AM while the only qualifying session will be held in the afternoon at 5:00 PM. Finally, the 25-lap or 45 minute race will take the green flag Saturday afternoon at 2:15 PM just after the Formula One qualifying session.
