Canadian touring: Roger Ledoux wins 2014 title

Presented at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, this final outing of the 2014 CTCC season was full of promise.

In Super Class, 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.

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.
