Matt White's lack-of-power issue yesterday was not entirely resolved overnight - the crew replaced his fuel pump but not the exhaust system.
But he managed to avoid the front-of-pack carnage typical of F1600 to finish fourth.
The race was won by Olivier Bonnet, who had a race-long dice with his father Olivier, who finished second. Those must be interesting family dinners. Steve Pickering finished third.
Why am I following Matt? Three reasons - he IS the three-time (and defending) Canadian Formula Ford champion; he won the support race to the NASCAR event here last year; and I used to race as a teammate to his father David, an ex-cop, ex-Young Drivers of Canada executive, and a Formula Ford champion in his day.
