Report: CSBK Rd 1, Shannonville Motorsport Park, ON

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”.
