Who Can Take the Briggs Titles?
Racers invade 3S Go-Karts for championship weekend
For the first time in nearly a decade, competition karting will compete at 3S Go-Karts in Sutton, Ontario as the KartStars Canada Championship finale will take place during Labour Day weekend.
A last minute change for the series saw them shift from Point Pelee Karting to 3S Go-Karts has caught the attention of many racers, including some getting a little nostalgia from their early karting days.
With it being the fourth and final round, here’s our look at the top-five in the championship standings in each of the classes
Marc Stehle (Ricciardo Kart) is unbeaten in the Briggs Masters Finals this season and that has earned him a 182-point lead in the championship. As one of the few drivers who competed at Sutton when it held Brian Stewart Racing Karting Championship races, Stehle should have a good memory of the circuit. Daniel Demaras (Intrepid) has enjoyed a great season since moving up to Masters. He holds a 23-point gap over Eli Yanko (TonyKart), and 85 points ahead of Levon Beaudin (BirelART).
We got a feeling KartStars Senior is going to be a popular class on Saturday as both Senior and Masters drivers will use the time to get up to speed before they race in their respective classes on Sunday.
For those that have competed in the class all season, Zach Boam (BirelART) leads the championship ahead of Jake Cowden (Awesome Kart). Like the Juniors, Cowden has a chance at taking two titles, but he needs to overcome a 153-point deficit to Boam. Matthew White, Daniel Demaras and Brennan Taylor are too far to strike for the title, but will need a good weekend to ensure they stay within the top-five
