Mont-Tremblant, September 28, 2003 -- Rain added to the challenge of the final races of the 2003 season at Circuit Mont-Tremblant.
CANADIAN FORMULA FORD CHAMPIONSHIP
Starting in the lead after the second qualifier, Christopher Guerrieri was followed closely by Didier Schraenen and Olivier Comeau. Guerrieri won both the race and the Canadian Formula Ford Championship.
"I want to thank my entire team and my sponsors, without whose help I could not have won the race and this year's championship. My car performed well on the wet track, so I was in full control. Our sponsor, masexualite.ca, really came through for us this year. It's an unusual organization that gave us a lot of visibility and attracted the support of other sponsors. I'm pleased to be the spokesperson for a cause that is so important to my generation."
Didier Schraenen had a terrific weekend, starting second after the qualifiers. Unfortunately, he skidded a few times on the wet surface and finished 6th; but this still assured him 2nd place in the Canadian Formula Ford Championship.
