Final 2014 CTCC This Weekend, 2014 Champions Are Crowned

This weekend, CTCC presented by Continental held its final event of the 2014 season. Two races were on the program, which would eventually crown the champions in all three categories. In Super Class, Gary Kwok and Rémy Audette shared the victories, while Roger Ledoux clinched the title. In Touring, Damon Sharpe finished in top spot both days but it was Michel Sallenbach who claimed the 2014 championship. And in B-Spec, Normand Boyer had a perfect weekend, winning both races and earning championship honours.

Presented at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, this final outing of the 2014 CTCC season was full of promise, notably in Super Class, where Rémy Audette was ready to fiercely compete in hopes of beating Roger Ledoux to the 2014 championship. Audette earned the fastest time in free practice, claimed pole position in qualifying, and led the first race on Saturday afternoon. However, on the sixth lap, while sitting comfortably in first place, a valve broke in Audette’s Honda Civic Si, forcing the driver from Boisbriand (QC) to abandon the race and effectively ended his chances of being crowned with the title.

At the end of a hotly contested race, Ontarian Gary Kwok won his first of the year, crossing the finish line eight seconds ahead of Scott Nicol. Benjamin Distaulo rounded out the podium, ahead of Tom Kwok and Roger Ledoux.

In Touring Class, Michel Sallenbach, already guaranteed the 2014 championship title, debuted a brand new Mini Coupe. Damon Sharpe won the race ahead of his teammate Stuart Clark and Quebecker Charles Leclerc.

In B-Spec Class, the young Ontarian Rui Teixeira was hoping to continue in the wake of his victory at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivières but veteran Normand Boyer, who has perfectly mastered the secrets of this fast track, didn’t leave him any chance of winning.

The second competition, contested on Sunday morning as the 2014 season-ending race, saw Rémy Audette launch himself into the lead right from the start. The Quebecker was never caught as he built up a gap of twenty-five second by the time he crossed the finish line. It’s the seventh victory in fourteen races this season for Audette. He earned championship runner-up status behind Roger Ledoux who, by finishing the race in sixth spot, was assured the necessary points to clinch his first ever championship title as the 2014 CTCC Super Class winner.

Finishing this race behind Rémy Audette were Gary and Tom Kwok, who put on a show, followed by Benjamin Distaulo, Nick Wittmer and of course, Roger Ledoux.

Damon Sharpe and Stuart Clark earned another one-two finish in Touring Class, this time ahead of Alain Lauzière. In fourth, was the 2014 champion Michel Sallenbach, in front of Karl Wittmer and Paul Gravel.

B-Spec Class saw Normand Boyer win again ahead of Rui Teixeira. Boyer is the 2014 class champion, followed by Teixeira and then Normand’ son, Manuel Boyer.
