Gore and Czaczyk score F1600 wins at Mont-Tremblant
Dev Gore and his teammate Konrad Czaczyk scored brilliant victories in the races of the 2017 Formula Tour 1600 Groupe STCH series held at the Mont-Tremblant circuit.
Sunday morning’s 12-lap race - the second of the meeting - was extremely exciting with daring passing manoeuvres and outstanding car control from every driver in the field.
Moments after the green, Dev Gore and fellow front row starter Roman de Angelis ran side-by-side in the fast and daunting Corner 1. On the next lap, Gore and his Exclusive Autosport teammate Konrad Czaczyk engaged in a furious battle, with De Angelis in third.
After a short full course yellow, the race resumed with Czaczyk in the lead. On Lap 8, the top five cars ran together with absolutely no room for error. Czaczyk was first, only inches in front of De Angelis, Gore, Didier Schraenen and Guillaume Archambault.
On Lap 8, Gore demoted Czaczyk from the lead. De Angelis was third, battling with Schraenen, Archambault and Dominic Legrand.
The action-packed race ended on Lap 12 with Gore taking first place in his Spectrum 2015 ahead of Archambault, driving a CMV CMB, and De Angelis in his Piper DL7.
In the third and final, 15-lap Formula 1600 race of the meeting, Konrad Czaczyk scored his second victory of the weekend after having won Round 1 staged on Saturday afternoon.
Czaczyk is from Jupiter, Florida and started his career as a successful kart racer. He then contested the 2014/2015 Skip Barber Winter Series, finishing third overall on the strength of three wins and eight podiums. He then went on to finish second in the Skip Barber Championship Shootout in 2015 before entering the F4 US Championship last season. Czaczyk scored three wins in F4 competition, sweeping the opening weekend at Mid-Ohio.
Driving his Honda-powered, Formula 1600 Spectrum 014H at Mont-Tremblant, Czaczyk drove a strong race to claim first place ahead of Roman De Angelis and Dominic Legrand in the other Spectrum fielded by team Exclusive Autosport.
