Dorothy Choquer and her son Bryce were at the track in March for the first races of the season last Saturday.

 

t gives me great pleasure to let you know that Bryce Choquer, of Langley has won the 2014 Western Canadian Championship in the Senior Rotax division. Stingray Robb won the CanAm Junior Rotax Championship and will be representing the United States of America at the Grand Finals in Valencia Spain.

 

This will be Bryce’s fourth time to the worlds.  In 2010 Bryce competed in Italy and was ranked 6th in the World, the highest achievement  for a Canadian in the Rotax Senior class.

 

Stingray Robb a rising superstar in the karting world is part of our local BBR Karting team located in  Langley BC which is operated by team manager and driver coach Blake Choquer.

 

Blake is Bryce’s older brother and  has also represented Canada in 2006 Portugal and 2007 Dubai.     

 

 “We are very proud to have two of our BBR Team members representing their respective countries in both the junior and senior classes”  stated  Blake Choquer.

During the summer Blake Choquer raced in Mont Tremblant, Quebec  at the Canadian Nationals where he finished 3rd in the Briggs L0206 Masters class. His younger brother Bryce also competed in his inaugural DD2 Rotax Class where he finished in a respectable 5th position.

 

This weekend both Bryce Choquer and Stingray Robb will be found on our local track in Chilliwack at the Greg Moore Raceway practicing in preparation for the upcoming World Championship.
