Two Seconds for Young at Calabogie

After a hard-fought weekend of racing at Calabogie Motorsports Park, Ben Young finished with two second-place finishes. This strong result means he will maintain the lead in the premier class of the Canadian Superbike Championship after Round 2.

Young was racing the brand new 2022 M 1000 RR for the weekend. The team had been working hard to get the bike ready for it’s debut weekend. During qualifying, Young posted an impressive 2:01.309 lap time which safely secured him the second-place spot on the grid for the upcoming races.

The racing began on Saturday evening, with Young rocketing off the line and taking the hole shot into the first corner. After leading for a few turns, he fell back into second position. Young would remain in a comfortable second for the remainder of the race, finishing on the second step of the podium.

Race two brought another great start for Young aboard his Van Dolder’s Home Team BMW. Young rode strong, shutting the door on many challenges for the lead and for the first half of the race, he lead the pack. Eventually, he would slot into second, and despite trying his hardest to challenge for the lead, he would ultimately cross the line with another second place.

Of the weekend, Young had this to say: “It was a fun debut weekend on the BMW M 1000 RR. With a lack of track time, no one was able to manage a race distance on a tire. With fellow competitors being on the same bikes as previous years we struggled a bit with the race set up with the tire going off during the race. Big changes for race 2 helped a bunch but still lacked that bit of edge grip.”

Thanks to Young’s consistent results over the weekend, he maintains the lead in the championship, albeit by 1 point. He looks to the Nova Scotia race in two weekends’ time at “Shubie” to regain a points cushion in his campaign for the 2022 title.

The next CSBK round will be held July 21st-24th at Atlantic Motorsports Park.

Young’s partners for his 2022 CSBK Championship season include; BMW Motorrad Canada, Van Dolder’s Home Team, Scot-Build Developments Inc, Parts Canada, HJC Helmets, Alpinestars, Hindle Exhaust, Barrie Trim and Mouldings, Clearlite, Primitive Patterns, DP Brakes, Alpha Racing and Vass Performance Cycle.
