Report: CSBK Rd 4&5, Atlantic Motorsports Park, NS

posted Jul 21, 2017, 3:22 AM by Statoni Racing   [ updated Jul 21, 2017, 3:37 AM ]

July 14-16, Atlantic Motorsport Park, NS saw the 2017 Canadian Superbike Championship return to the east coast for rounds 4 & 5.
 
As it was a double header qualifying was on Friday afternoon so there was less practice time available. It was a case of get up to speed as quickly as possible. “The bike was working well and I felt fairly comfortable from the start. My fastest lap was mid session which ended up good enough for 5th place on the second row. That was the goal.” said Stacey (Photo Credit: Dave Morash)
 
In the Saturday morning warm up Stacey focused on improving specific areas of the track rather than lap times.  

At the start of Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike race one Stacey gained one position on her BLKRDR by Motovan/FTR CBR600RR which quickly became as two way battle for third. This in turn opened a gap to the next group. Stacey would eventually cross the line 5th. She improved her lap time from qualifying by a second. This was significant because a new rule this year in CSBK sees the grid for race two based on the lap times from race one. Stacey had the 5th fastest lap so another row two start for Sunday’s race.
 
“I was pleased enough with how the race went” said Stacey. “We are making progress in each session and getting closer to the pace”. She sat out the Saturday Mopar Pro Superbike race and save her energy for Sunday’s races.
 
Sunday morning was cloudy and rain threatened but it held off. Stacey got a better start in Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike race two and moved up to 3rd. This time she stayed with the leaders. and by mid-distance she was still within a couple of seconds.

“Jake got by on the back straight. I was able to stick with him and we were starting to close a bit on the two leaders again. Unfortunately I hit a false neutral going into turn one about four laps from the end and lost two seconds right there. I was lucky not to run off the track and crash but I think the spectators were entertained! It was too much to make up in the remaining laps so I decided to bring it home for a safe 4th. I must admit though I was disappointed not to get on the podium“ said Stacey.
 
In the Mopar Pro Superbike race Stacey did only a handful of qualifying laps so she was starting from the back of the grid. She got a good start and moved up to 12th. This became a terrific four way race long battle for 11th between two superbikes and two 600s. Unfortunately it ended after she was tagged in turn one. Stacey and another rider crashed bringing out the red flags. Fortunately neither was too seriously hurt. “It was a racing incident, just one of those things. It was a good race up to then but not the best way to finish. I had a good weekend overall though. I am happy with the progress and feel I am getting back to the pace I know I should be at. Roll on Mosport” said Stacey.
 
The final round is another double header at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, ON, August 18-20.

Report: CSBK Rd 3, Autodrome St-Eustache, QC

posted Jun 27, 2017, 4:52 AM by Statoni Racing   [ updated Jun 27, 2017, 4:56 AM ]

June 23-25, Autodrome St-Eustache, QC was the third round of the 2017 Canadian Superbike Championship.

Stacey took advantage of the good weather and did the Thursday test day "Although this is technically my home track, I don't ride here much and this was the first time this year. With the mixed weather forecast for the weekend I needed the track time" said Stacey.

With the rain early Friday, the crew used the time to make changes to the front and rear suspension on the BLKRDR by Motovan/FTR CBR600RR. The track dried out in the afternoon enough to verify the changes were in the right direction.

Saturday afternoon and Stacey qualified 11th for the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport class for what we thought was a third row start. She qualified 19th in Mopar Pro Superbike.

Sunday race day was sunny for morning warm up. The forecasted weather was threatening for the start of the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport but it remained dry. It turned out the grid configuration was to be 3-2-3 so Stacey would start from row five. She got an average start and moved into the top ten in what was to be a four way fight for seventh. There were multiple position changes throughout the race. With rain drops starting to fall on the final laps, Stacey made a bold move on the last lap entering the stadium section to retake 8th position. With a defensive line through the last turn she was able to hold on to the finish line. She had improved her lap time by over a second from qualifying and set a personal best in the race. "We made some further changes to the bike this weekend which really helped. I enjoyed the race and was able to push harder. Hopefully we can carry this progress through for the remaining rounds" said Stacey.

"I would like to thank Pat and Dad for for improving the bike all weekend. Also to Motovan Inc (BLK RDR program), FTR and sponsors, the corner workers, medical staff, CSBK staff and the fans and supporters in the stands and on social media". 

The next round is at Atlantic Motorsport Park, NS, July 14-16.

Report: CSBK Rd 2, Grand Bend, ON

posted Jun 15, 2017, 3:52 PM by Statoni Racing   [ updated Jun 15, 2017, 4:01 PM ]

June 9-11, Grand Bend Motorplex, ON was the second round of the 2017 Canadian Superbike Championship. It was the first time for the series to race at the venue. The CSBK team did a good job adapting to the facilities and overall it worked well.

"I have never been to this track before" said Stacey. "It is a little narrow and bumpy, but that is the same for everyone. I enjoyed it".

The weekend got off to a bumpy start - literally. Exiting the track at the end of the fast runway back straight Stacey was able to scrub off enough speed resulting in a lower speed crash. She was able to ride back to the pits and the crew had the BLKRDR by Motovan/FTR CBR600RR repaired, re-teched and ready to go for the next session.

The weather was hot and sunny for most of the weekend. Stacey qualified 11th for the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport class. 9th to 13th was covered by 0.3 seconds. Obviously Stacey wanted to be further up the grid but she was improving lap times in each session. She qualified 20th in  Mopar Pro Superbike.

Sunday was race day. Stacey got a good start in the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport race and had moved into the top ten. The race was red flagged on lap two due to a crash out of the fast last turn. "Jacob went down pretty hard in front of us. Fortunately he was relatively ok" said Stacey. Not as good a start in the restart but Stacey had again moved into the top ten and was gaining on the riders in front of her. She was forced to retire before mid distance with a mechanical issue. "I was very disappointed to DNF as I think a top six was possible today". Stacey got a good start in the Mopar Pro Superbike and had a good battle with one of the local SOAR racers. She retired form the race after half distance. She did improve her lap times again in both races. "Racing the 600 against Superbikes is a difficult but I value the track time and always try to learn something from them every time". 

Thank you to Motovan Inc (BLK RDR program) and sponsors. Thanks to Jon Cornwell for improving the bike set up throughout the weekend. Thanks also to Frank Trombino for his help on and off the track (congratulations Frank on winning the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport race).

The next round is closer to home at Autodrome St-Eustache, QC, June 23-25.

Report: CSBK Rd 1, Shannonville Motorsport Park, ON

posted May 29, 2017, 6:03 PM by Statoni Racing   [ updated May 29, 2017, 6:30 PM ]

May 26-28, Shannonville Motorsport Park saw the opening round on the 2017 Canadian Superbike Championship. With poor track conditions on Thursday the time was used to address some teething issues on the BLKRDR by Motovan/FTR Honda CBR600RR. “I can’t thank Pat Milligan and Peter Soame enough for all the effort and long hours to prep the bike. We were a little late putting our program together this year but fortunately most of the kinks were ironed out for Friday practice.”

The weather had improved on Saturday but Stacey was still struggling for pace. The qualifying goal was the first two rows and that was mission accomplished with 7th spot on the grid for the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport class. She was not able to improve her times in Mopar Pro Superbike qualifying, unfortunately picking up an injury.

Race day warmup did not go to plan and Stacey was forced to sit out the Superbike warmup session to get fit for the afternoon races. In the Liqui Moly Pro Sport BikeSport race Stacey got a good start and was in 5th place into turn one. She had a few battles and was holding down 8th position for the first half of the race before a rider error saw her take the slip road off the back straight. She rejoined in 11th. Despite some last minute setup changes that did not work out, Stacey was still able to ride around it and improve her lap time from qualifying. She decided to sit out the Mopar Pro Superbike race. “Thank you to Doc Walker for the medical advice. Thanks too to Jon Cornwell. This opening weekend was certainly challenging but we worked hard and didn’t give up. We will take the positives and move forward to the next round at Grand Bend”.

There was some further good news to end the day. R&M Electrical (Burlington, ON) return as a sponsor this year. Thank you Mike Rixon. Thanks to Honda Canada for providing a set of tires to each of the Honda riders this weekend. The icing on the cake was Autumn and Jaret Whiteside buying us some tires and dropping them off to our pit. “This really put a smile on my face. At the end of the day we are a privateer team. Forensi Tech Racing is supporting us with bike preparation and Motovan through their BLKRDR program. We are grateful for any and all support we receive”.
