Jamieson Relishes Chance At WDC

“Neither of them (Mark MacDonald and Randy Waples, due to stakes commitments) have put their necks out to represent their countries and there is nothing like it. I think when their careers are done, I don’t think they are going to be completely satisfied with the choices they have made. To represent Canada for a fourth time would be huge to me and all those races will be around next year and so will I, god willing.”

From the above quote, it is clear that award-winning pilot Jody Jamieson takes the World Driving Championship seriously. While in discussion with Nick Oakes for a piece in The Guardian, Jamieson made it abundantly clear that the WDC will be a prominent aspect of his past accomplishments once his career is over.

In order to be able to represent Canada in the 2011 WDC, Jamieson will first have to defeat a number of his fellow countrymen on Saturday, May 7 at PEI's Red Shores Racetrack & Casino at Charlottetown Driving Park during the 2011 National Driving Championship, but Jamieson explained that the horses have a lot to do with the outcome.

“At the end of the day the guys with the best horses will win,” said Jamieson, who won the 2001 WDC. “Kenny Arsenault will no doubt have an advantage, as he has a better idea of the horses and trainers and which ones should actually win. Gilles the same thing but to a lesser extent. But it really won’t matter, the best horses and the best driver will win it, whether it's myself or Dave Hudon or whoever, and there is nothing Kenny Arsenault or anyone can do about it.”
