Professional Motorsport Productions (PMP), organizers of the Canadian National Superbike motorcycle road racing Championship series (CSBK) have confirmed a variety of updates related to the current global COVID-19 pandemic.
Long time CSBK title sponsor MOPAR, a subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Canada (FCA), have invoked the “Force Majeure” element of the existing contract between MOPAR and CSBK. This means that MOPAR have withdrawn from their agreed title sponsorship of the 2020 Canadian National Championship Superbike road racing tour.
The Mopar CSBK Canadian National Superbike Championship have confirmed 2020 rules revisions for the popular Amateur Lightweight Sport Bike category, as well as announcing a parallel Pro/AM category celebrating the 40th anniversary of the series at Shannonville Motorsport Park, September 19-20.
Racers involved in Lightweight class racing at 2019 National events were surveyed in the fall of 2019, with almost two thirds of participants responding, allowing an understanding of what rules direction the competitors favored. As well, CSBK staff looked at data collected from both TSN’s Motorcycle Experience Amateur Lightweight Sport Bike races in 2019 and support class activity for similar machines.
