Name: James Dunn
Category: Briggs & Stratton Masters
Team: Margay Racing Canada / Le Circuit Quyon
James has always loved the thrill and speed of rental karting, and after a quick session on the track at Le Circuit Quyon, he was hooked! James tested in a race spec Margay Brava, and instantly demonstrated his potential. Track owner Paul Lalonde recognised this and shortly thereafter had James racing with his Margay Racing Canada team.
His favourite tracks are Le Circuit Quyon, Mosport (Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, for you young’ns), and Le Circuit Mont-Tremblant – all tracks with a tremendous amount of heritage and prestige, and very challenging to drive! If you can drive well at these tracks, you can drive well ANYWHERE.
James’s favourite drivers are Ayrton Senna, Charlotte Lalonde, Dave Anderson, and Mike Forget. Some you may have heard of before, some you may not be too familiar with…but what they all have in common is drive, ambition, focus, and determination! Ayrton, of course, was a three-time Formula 1 World Champion winning the F1 crown in 1988, 1990, and 1991; Charlotte is a multiple OGKC Briggs & Stratton Senior Class champion; Dave is multiple-race winner in several series in Ontario and is a regular podium finisher in regional events; Mike is a hard charger in the OGKC Briggs & Stratton Masters Class that is always at the front of the pack!
For 2016, James plans to defend his OGKC Briggs & Stratton Masters crown, as well as be a regular top-5 finisher in the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship (ECKC) series events. Last year, James made it onto the podium in the ASN Canadian National Karting Championships (CNKC) – and he plans on being a top-3 finisher this year as well.
Good luck in 2016 James!
