Ottawa Boat & Sportsmen’s Show


Le Circuit Quyon Kart Club will be at the upcoming 2013 Ottawa Boat & Sportsmen’s Show, booth #129. The show runs from Thursday February 21st through Sunday February 24th.

If you didn’t make it to our recent Open House, or even if you did, stop by our booth for a look at the new Margay and CRG race karts, check out our 2013 racing schedule, or just do some bench racing to get warmed up for the coming season. We’ll have club members and track staff on hand to answer your questions about the sport and LCQKC’s plans for 2013. Make a note on your calendar and set aside some time to talk karting and get back “into the groove” with us at the show!

This year’s show is at the Ernst & Young Center. Directions to the show, and details on all the other interesting exhibitors are available at the Ottawa Boat & Sportsmen’s Show website

Team LCQ Champions at the NCKC 2012 racing series

Congratulations to Charlotte Lalonde and Crawford Kilpatrick on their 2012 quest for the Championship at the NCKC 2012 series. Charlotte managed to win the Briggs and Stratton senior class and was crowned Champion at the NCKC banquet last weekend at Funhaven. This was by far the most competitive class this year. Charlotte and her CRG kart were fast and consistent all year long. Special thanks to KDM racing ( Kelly Michaud) for an awesome engine package that never failed us all year. KDM has also been chosen for our official engine supplier for the 2013 season.
Crawford Kilpatrick also had an awesome season. Crawford was crowned the 2012 4 stroke GT champion. This was Crawford’s rookie season, and he was also crowned rookie of the year. His LCQ-prepared Arrow chassis was fast, fast, and faster as the year progressed. His driving skills progressed rapidly throughout the season due to many hours of practice and coaching by LCQ team instructors. Crawford’s kart was also powered by B&S from KDM Racing – it proved very consistent and never failed him. LCQ is looking forward to its 2013 racing series. Details are being posted when available. If anyone is interested in joining our team please do not hesitate to contact us.
