Calabogie Pro Superbike Opener Confirmed for CSBK in 2021

Toronto, ON – The 2021 Canadian National Superbike road racing Championship Series (CSBK) will start with a Pro Superbike-only event at Calabogie Motorsports Park, ON, on Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5.  This event is part of the Pro 6 GP Race Series, and will provide practice and Qualifying on Friday, June 4, with the opening two 2021 Superbike National Feature events on Saturday afternoon, June 5.

The opening event for the full series will take place, as previously announced, at Grand Bend Motorplex, ON, the following weekend, June 10-11, with a Pro 6 Track Day on the Friday.  The Grand Bend event will not only offer races three and four of Pro Superbike action, but also a full array of National racing categories: Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike, Amateur Sport Bike, Amateur Superbike, and the Super Sonic Race School Amateur Lightweight Sport Bike category.

At the Pro Superbike opener at Calabogie, the two National Feature races will also offer points towards the new Pro 6 GP Race Series, based at the popular facility south west of Ottawa, ON.  As at all National races, all competitors in Pro Superbike will be required to compete using spec Dunlop slick racing tires.  Dunlop have been the official supplier of racing rubber for CSBK during the past eight seasons.

Calabogie opened the COVID-19 delayed 2020 CSBK Tour, with two races on a brutally hot July afternoon.  14-time Superbike National Champ Jordan Szoke of Lynden, ON, won both 12 lap races around the 5.05-kilometer-long venue.  “Jordan of the Jungle” was aboard the works-backed Canada General Warranty Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja.  Mississauga, ON, based One Speed factory Suzuki GSX-R1000 racer Trevor Daley was second in the opener, followed by the Royal Distributing BMW S1000RR of Michael Leon from Beaconsfield, QC.

In Calabogie race two in 2020, Jeff Williams of Kingston, ON, was a close second to Szoke on another new BMW, with Daley working his way up to net third.

In other CSBK Series news, organizers Professional Motorsports Productions of Toronto, ON, have confirmed that their Competition Membership for 2021 will also include the Pro 6 GP Race Series membership, so one “hard card” will cover participation in both Championships.  This two-series enrolment will also include membership in MCC, the Motorcyclists Confederation of Canada, the National body for all forms of two-wheeled activity.

CSBK will continue to organize events in conjunction with Pro 6 in 2021, and event entry will once again be handled via the Pro 6 web site.  In 2021, an updated management system has been implemented, the integrated by Hagerty.

This new system is now on-line at Pro 6 within the Pro 6 GP section of their website as well as on via Pro 6 GP Race Series and CSSBK National competitors can now confirm their competition plate number and apply for 2021 membership.
