The end of the regular racing season is near – with one race remaining! Are you ready for Race #5, the final race of the 2019 Ottawa Gatineau Karting Championship? Get ready to hit the track on SATURDAY, September 7!
The season standings in all categories, including the hotly-contested LCQ Rental Kart Challenge, are available for viewing here.
The core racing categories are Novice, Junior, Senior, and Masters Briggs and Stratton. In Novice, Bronson Hetherington has a significant lead; however, there is a very close battle for second – less than 40 points separates the next four racers. In Junior, Denver Craig has a virtually unsurmountable lead – but the next three racers are separated by only 20 points. Final positions will be determined this race! In Senior, Raphael Kiopini has a large lead over Phil Stang in second – and in Masters, Mike Forget is leading over Dave Hoffman – who is having a great year! In the LCQ Rental Kart Challenge, Nick Karrandjos is currently in first place, with the top four racers separated by only 15 points. The last race of the year will certainly influence the final standings of the year!
