Zachary Vanier, Bertrand Godin and JC Trahan compete in series opener this weekend at Circuit Mt. Tremblant.
Mt. Tremblant, QC (May 25, 2019) – Britain West has returned to full time competition in the Quebec based F1600 Canada series with a strong 3 car team of Mygale Honda’s driven by young standout Zachary Vanier, of Sudbury, ON, popular Quebec racer and media personality Bertrand Godin, of Saint-Hyacinthe, QC and rookie driver JC Trahan, of Sainte-Therese, QC.
Expectations are high for some very strong results as Vanier nabbed his first ever F1600 victory in a one-off appearance at this very track to end the season and the fast and flowing circuits suits his courageous driving style.
Godin came back to racing last season with Britain West after a solid career in the 90’s and ‘90’s making his mark in Europe and eventually here in North America in Formula Atlantic and the Indy Lights championship. It didn’t take him losing to get back to form, grabbing a spectacular and crowd pleasing win at the Grand Prix de Trois-Rivieres.
JC Trahan is very new to racing but had an impressive test with Britain West in the fall and the decision was made that he was ready to make the jump and start his career. Many will remember the name Trahan as his father was a popular racer and we’re proud they have chosen Britain West to carry on the family legacy.
The Spring Classic got underway with testing Thursday and practice Friday under cool and mixed conditions. Qualifying will take place Saturday morning for race 1 later that afternoon. The final 2 races of the weekend will take place Sunday.
