Laberge Masters Canadian GT3 Challenge
Borgeat lost a position after the bobble and decided to make an opportunistic move to regain his position in turn nine that ultimately caused him to lose traction pushed him back to an 11th place finish.
Although Borgeat didn’t have the finish he aimed for, it appears the top two finishers from 2012 are back in contention. Both GT Racing drivers were unhappy with their performance in rounds one and two of the season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park for Victoria Day and had high expectations for this weekend.
“The only thing that was important for me is that I am back,” Etienne exclaimed. “I just tried a little too hard to push in one section and I knew I could get a run on (David) Ostella and I just pushed a little too hard and ended up fifth in that last corner. And then the last incident, I know better but I just tried it, and ended up in the tires on the second to last corner. The important thing is that I had a good run with many passes and I was really fast out there and that is a good thing.”
SpeedMerchants’ David Ostella repeated his second place finish from yesterday and repeated his dominant charge from a seventh place starting position to once again keep company with the top contenders.
He was able to preserve his Michelins for a late push on lap 31 and made a bold pass on Green in turn 10 with just two laps remaining to capture the second place position. Ostella remains the series points leader after rounds five and six, with a total of 104 points.
Carlos De Quesada ran away with the victory in the Gold Cup class. Tim Sanderson and Martin Barkey dogged his heels and fought hard for their podium finishes.
