RC Pro Canada Atlantic series title for Yannick LeBlanc

RC Pro Canada Atlantic series title for Yannick LeBlanc

The last round of the RC Pro Canada Atlantic division series was held at the Red Clay R/C Clubs track in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The points contention were open to a few drivers based on the final results of round 4. Yannick LeBlanc ended up TQ-ing the 1/8 Nitro class but at the start of the 30 minute final A main, 20 seconds from the start a sudden flame out on Yannick’s car forced a panic rush back to the start box by the pit crew. The starting grid pack ended up leaving on the horn and Yannick got to the track within 7 to 10 seconds of the start. With determined patience and clean driving, within 7 laps, Yannick was back at position 1 where he had to battle to hold the lead. There was a fierce battle for second which ended up allowing Yannick to extend his lead and claim the victory with a 2 lap safety net in front of Shane Foote and Laurie Cormier. This win also secured Yannick the overall championship title.
