There was no time to rest after DMCC Rd2 as Rd3 was the very next weekend. Marc Landreville was taken out during the top 16 due to a clutch failure. With the short time frame between round his team put on a new clutch and headed out to the River Side Speedway in Ste Croix Quebec.
As usual the day started off with the morning drivers meeting.
While his team did the final prep on the car before the practice session.
Out for the first few laps, Marc was looking good smoking that Achellis rubber.
Each lap his crew was dialling in the car since this was the first time DMCC was at this track the car set ups were un known.
After a few more practice laps it was time for a track break.
It gave me a chance to chat with Marc and found out how his day was going. Turns out his car was still having slight issues.
After an other practice session it was time for the qualification runs. I heard them announce Marcs name but I didn’t hear the un mistakable sound of his car. Turns out his car’s problems were bigger then the team though so in order to make it into the event they borrowed Silvio Santos’s V8 S14.
Having never driven the car before on his first pass he was able to lock himself unto the 7th spot for the Top 16 main event.
The next day started with some practice before the main event.
>Marc’s spotter Mike headed up to the spotters stand and Marc headed to the pre grid.
It didnt take long for Marc to feel comfortable in the car. He was ready for the main event.
Top 16 drivers intro. Marc rides out on his trusty pit bike..
Marc’s first battle was against Joe Thiffault.
Joe went 4 wheels off on his chase run and called a 5 minute. Once back out Marc had a good chase run and got the win.
Into the great 8 Marc faced Tom Tom. Two good runs by Marc but on his chase run the car didnt sound like it was doing well.
Sadly this is how Marc’s weekend finished due to a slave cylinder letting go putting him at 4th position which is still =very good considering he was not piloting his own car. RD4 is coming up soon and Im sure Marc’s S14 will be ready for battle with all the bugs worked out.
