The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will be the title sponsor for the opening round of the 2019 Mopar CSBK Canadian National motorcycle road racing championships, May 17-19, at Shannonville Motorsport Park’s Pro layout.
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) is the oldest and largest Electrical Workers union in the world, founded November 28, 1891 in St. Louis Missouri. The first IBEW Local union in Canada was chartered in 1899 in Ottawa, Ontario. The IBEW represents over 775,000 members in North America and just under 70,000 here in Canada.
A busy Saturday at the Motorcycle Show-Toronto at the Enercare Centre on the CNE Grounds included the stars of the Mopar CSBK Superbike road racing tour visiting with motorcyclists at the Show. Most of the top guns from the Nationals, with the exception of away-on-business Samuel Trepanier, were interviewed by Series announcer Frank Wood and signed autographs for supporters.
Jordan Szoke of Lynden, ON, was sporting Kawasaki Ninja clothing for the first time, recognizing his switch to the “mean green” for the next two CSBK seasons. With six titles in seven seasons for previous employer BMW, Szoke switch has been a major curiosity during the off-season.
