Final Countdown for the Race Season

Monday, September 21, 2015
The kart race season is coming to a close and we're going out with a bang. The kids started school on Wednesday, September 2nd  and on the Friday of that first week of school we we're heading out in the RV for the Coupe de Quebec race in Mt. Tremblant. Matt went ahead with the dogs in the motorhome and the kids and I came after school was out in the car. Since Chloe's final race, an Eastern Canadian Karting Championship race and Northeast Rotax Regional race combined, was to be at Mt. Tremblant we decided to leave the motorhome at the track so we could make a quick getaway and return in the car.

BeBe and PaPaw came to visit on September 15 and on the 16th we headed back to Mt. Tremblant for the ECKC race. This was Chloe's last big race for the year. The trip was a lot of fun as many other races who compete in the Northeast Rotax came to race as well. Not only did my parents come with us, but Bryan and Sue also made the trip up to watch Chloe race and to see Oliver and Emma Claire.

It was a great "last hoorah" for the kart season. Chloe finished 5th in the ECKC, but we know that she will come back stronger and faster  in her 2nd year driving MiniMax. We really enjoyed racing in Canada this race season and have lots of great memories from all the trips we took. We were glad that our family and friends came up to Quebec to share in the beauty of the mountains.
