The F2000 Championship drivers’ wrapped up a wet weekend at Mosport earlier today, completing Rounds 5 & 6 of the 2010 season. Canadian Remy Audette showcased his speed on a slick track surface Saturday, driving from flag-to-flag to earn his first victory since May 25, 2009 at Lime Rock Park.  Audette started the weekend off on the right foot, finishing inside the top-three in every practice session before earning the pole position for Round 5.  Additionally, he set the fastest lap of the race (1:38.032) en route to Saturday’s win.

“That was just an amazing race,” said Audette in a release. “I was on the limit the entire way and we went to the wet tires at the last second, and the track just kept changing. This is also special because it is my first win at Mosport.”

Phil Lombardi, who competes in the Masters Class, finished second in Saturday’s race.  The real story of the day was Cole Morgan, 2007 F2000 Champion, who spun on the opening lap of the race, dropping to the rear of the field, and then proceeded to catapult through the field to finish a respectable third.

Championship leader Victor Carbone finished fourth, just over 43-seconds back. Tim Minor rounded out the top-five.

In Round 6, Carbone returned to his winning ways by earning the pole position and driving to victory on Canadian soil. It was Carbone’s fourth win in six events this season. He set the fastest lap of the race with a 1:21.311.

“It wasn’t as easy as it may have looked,” said Carbone in a release. “I got a great start and then just pushed from there and looked forward.”

Remy Audette rounded out the top-three, earning his second consecutive podium finish. Masters Class’ competitors Tim Minor and Phil Lombardi finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
