Belleville’s West City Powersports Honda will be an official sponsor of the Mopar CSBK Starting Lights and Pit Lane Countdown Clock for the opening round of the 2019 National motorcycle road racing championships presented by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers at Shannonville Motorsport Park.
The Shannonville track, located about 15 minutes east of Belleville, ON, on the 401 Highway, first hosted a National event in September of 1980. The popular, multi-use venue was then much less developed, and known as Nelson International Raceway. That race weekend 39 years ago was the second-ever such event held for Superbikes in Canada.
The newly-formed Classic Superbike Racing group will host their first-ever event at round two of the 2019 Mopar CSBK Superbike Nationals at Grand Bend Motorplex, June 7-9. The just-launched CSBR series, “dedicated to the preservation and racing of classic superbikes,” is focused on first-generation machinery from the late-1970s and early 1980s.
CSBR have races scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday afternoon at Grand Bend’s CSBK National. The series will use the 11-turn, 2.2 km long “technical layout” of the popular multi-use venue on Ontario’s “west coast,” just minutes from the southern shores of Lake Huron.
