The winners of the 2017 Canadian Tire Eastern Ontario Karting Championships were announced at the Lombardy Karting Association Annual Banquet held in Smiths Falls, Ontario on Saturday, October 14. Trophies were presented to the top go-kart drivers in three classes. These were the high point scorers after nine races held at the association’s kart track at the Lombardy Fairgrounds outside of Smiths Falls.

Gutknecht was also named “Sportsman of the Year”. In presenting the Sportsman Trophy, Lombardy Karting President Gord Costello told the audience, “‘Sportsman’ means: not whining, not getting mad at your dad, not blaming your kart and not bumping other drivers off the track.”
The Senior Spec Racer Champion was Todd Ceasar. Trevor Ceasar came second and James Smith was third; all from Perth, Ontario.
Junior driver Matt Lavelle of Kingston, Ontario was presented with the “Most Improved Driver” trophy.
The winner of the Canadian Tire Toolbox was drawn at the banquet. Raffle tickets were sold during the season and the money raised was used to send three Lombardy Karting drivers to the Canadian National Go-Karting Championships in Toronto. Trevor Ceasar of Perth, Ontario held the winning ticket.
