The first half of a double-header weekend at the Canadian Mini Indy featured nearly 150 racers as the Hamilton Regional Karting Club welcomed the Mosport International Karting Association and the Canadian Karting Challenge for an excellent day of inter-club competition.
The grids were well loaded and the racing was intense as ten categories took to the track. With a great mix of teams, chassis and engines, it was an exciting day for all and for the hosts, a great showcase event.
In Briggs Senior we saw a very calculated race by Logan Ploder (CL Kart) to score the win. He sat behind race leader Jon Treadwell (BirelART) for the duration of the race until two laps to go, where he made his move for the lead. While Treadwell looked for an opportunity to recover the lead position, he left the door open for Jordan Prior (BirelART) to slip inside on the final lap to score the second position, but he ran out of time to attack Ploder for the win. Jeremy Vaillancourt (BirelART) was also part of the lead train but had to settle for fourth, while David Barnes (BirelART) was the victor of the second pack at the checkered flag to take fifth. Briggs Senior was the largest category of the day with 35 entrants.
From our calculations, Patrick Woods-Toth (Prime/BirelART) hasn’t lost a race at the Canadian Mini Indy. He added another ROK Senior victory on Saturday, with an easy cruising in the Final. It will be interesting to see if anyone has anything for him in tomorrow’s CKN Dash for Cash. Robert Soroka (KGR/Redspeed) worked his way forward into a second-place finish ahead of Adam Ali (REM/Kosmic), Andrew Maciel (VSR/TonyKart) and Mathieu Cousineau (BCR/BirelART).
