Remy Audette, Michel Sallenbach, Damon Sharpe and Normand Boyer Take Top Honours

Winning the two races in Super Class didn’t come easy for Quebec driver Rémy Audette (Honda Civic Si). On Saturday afternoon, during the first race, he was up against 2013 champion, Ontarian Scott Nicol, who was also in a Honda Civic Si. Nicol benefited from a caution, as a result of engine failure of Suart Clark’s Touring class Honda, to close the gap to Audette. As soon as the race resumed, ten minutes from the end, Rémy reasserted his domination. Mathieu Audette, Rémy’s older brother, completed the podium in his Acura RSX. Roger Ledoux, in a Subaru WRX STI, finished fourth ahead of Gunther Schmidt, Gary Kwok and Nick Wittmer.

In Touring Class, Michel Sallenbach and his Mini Cooper S edged out Jocelyn Hébert (Honda Civic). The podium was completed by Karl Wittmer, the 2013 B-Spec Class champion, debuting in a brand new Honda Civic.

Family ruled the day in B-Spec Class as well ! This time, a father-son duo crossed the finish line in the lead with Normand Boyer winning ahead of his son Manuel Boyer, both at the wheel of their Mazda2’s. Third place went to Rui Texeira in a Honda Fit.

Claiming pole position for the second race on Sunday afternoon, Rémy Audette this time saw his brother battle him for the win up until the last few meters. Less than one second eventually separated Rémy and Mathieu Audette at the finish.

Roger Ledoux and Scott Nicol battled it our for third place up until five minutes from the finish when both suffered engine problems, relinquishing third spot to Nick Wittmer. Albeit far behind the Audette brothers, Nick Wittmer was able to savour his first 2014 podium at the wheel of his Honda Accord V6 Coupe. Nick Wittmer finished ahead of Nathalie Hénault, who had a great debut in the series with her Subaru WRX STI.

In Touring Class, 2013 champion Damon Sharpe, was able to distance his Honda Civic from Michel Sallenbach. Without a doubt, the exciting duel between these two drivers has carried over from 2013! Third place went to Karl Wittmer. In this category, novices Marie-France Gagné and Samantha Tan both had great races in the Mini Cooper S.

And finally, in B-Spec Normand Boyer’s weekend ended as well as it began. The resident of Ste-Agathe-des-Monts (QC) claimed another victory ahead of Ontario pole position winner rookie Rui Texeira and Manuel Boyer.

The next outing for the CTCC presented by Continental Tire will be on June 7th at the Gilles-Villeneuve circuit in Montreal, as part of the program for the Formula 1 Grand Prix du Canada. Qualifying will take place on Friday with both races taking place the following day.
