BOWMANVILLE, ON – Track conditions were challenging in unseasonably cool conditions this afternoon in Round 12 of the Sports Car Championship Canada (SCCC) presented by Michelin race series at the CTMP Labour Day Weekend Sprints at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park. This weekend’s two races were scored as double points to make up for the first two rounds of the season that were scrubbed due to the severe storm that hit during the Victoria Day Speedfest weekend.
With his second victory this weekend and fifth win of the season was TCR class points leader Jerimy Daniel (#10 TRC Motorsport 2021 Audi RS3 LMS sponsored by FIX Auto). His victory cemented his title as the 2022 TCR Class Champion. It was the second overall series race win for a TCR car. “Thanks to TRC Motorsport, the whole team, for preparing an awesome car, and also for my sponsor FIX Auto,” he said. “And thanks to FEL Motorsports for organizing such a professional championship. We are really looking forward to next year!”
Crossing the finish line two-and-a-half seconds behind Daniel as the GT4 class race winner was Jack Polito (#22 Polito Racing 2018 Ford Mustang sponsored by Polito Ford Lincoln. “My team is just a two-man crew who did great to get the job done,” he said. “I also want to thank Multimatic for building such an amazing car. They have helped us and they have been amazing. I’m looking forward to contending next year.”
In the TCR class, the second-place finisher was Jean-François Hevey (# 21 TRC Motorsport 2021 Audi RS3 LMS sponsored by HD Maintenance). “I was expecting to catch Jerimy on this weekend, but he was just too fast,” he said. “We will try to get him next season.”
In third was Richard Boake (#84 Blanchet Motorsports 2017 Audi RS3 LMS SEQ sponsored by Blanchet Motorsports, Rheem Canada and Betz Pools). “This has been a fantastic race season,” he said. “I’m looking forward to next year.”
The driver finishing behind Jack Polito in the GT4 class was Zachary Vanier (#9 Pfaff Motorsports 2019 McLaren 570s sponsored by Technica Mining) who scored enough overall season points to capture the title as the 2022 GT4 Class Champion. He said there was a lot of pressure going into this weekend with the points standings on the line. “We came into the weekend with the mindset of being calculated, not taking any risks that we didn’t need to. I’m just so proud of the entire group at Pfaff Motorsports. It’s been an amazing season with them.”
In third was Charles Robin (#56 Rilli Racing 2020 Mercedes AMG sponsored by SH Karting and ODI). “Thanks to the Rilli Racing team,” Robin said. We are proud of the progress we made from the first year’s season to now. So proud of it. Looking at the season, as a whole, I am super happy. Just looking forward to challenges next year.”
