BMW’s dominate at Shannonville Superbike post SuperPole tech

Following Dalton Timmis Insurance Pro Superbike SuperPole at Shannonville Motorsport Park’s Pro Track in the early afternoon of Saturday, May 28, the top performers from the Mopar CSBK Superbike class went to post race Technical Inspection after the podium presentation.

The top five in the standings following final SuperPole Qualifying were first weighed, and then went to the official series Dynojet rear-wheel Dynomometer, operated by Brooklin Cycle Racing of Pickering, ON.  Bikes are required to weigh at least 370 pounds on the series official scales, and put out no more than 200 horsepower, with the bikes inspected in the exact form they left the circuit at the end of the session – no fuel may be added, and the machines can not have electronics down-loaded or updated.

Fast Qualifier Jordan Szoke of Lynden, ON, the most successful racer in the history of the CSBK tour, had 191.3 horsepower and his Mopar Express Lane BMW S1000RR weighted in at 390 pounds.

Veteran Matt McBride of Mississauga, ON, was second best with his Rider’s Choice/Jukasa Motor Speedway BMW S1000RR.  The popular McBride’s mount had 183.8 horsepower and a total wet weight of 402 pounds.

Third quickest was the Scot Build Developments/Barrie Trim and Mouldings BMW S1000RR of third year Pro Ben Young of Collingwood, ON.  Young’s BeeMm spun the drum to record 184.1 horsepower, and weighted in at 387 pounds.

Completing the front row is Michael Leon of Beaconsfield, QC, with his Royal Distributing/Pro6 supported BMW S1000RR.  Leon, winner of the National warm-up RACE SuperSeries Regional at the same venue two weeks ago, had a BMW that made 182.7 horsepower on the Dyno, with a weight of 391 pounds.

Heading row two for Sunday afternoon’s 22 Lap Feature race will be Samuel Trepanier, another third year Pro from St-Isadore, QC.  Trepanier suffered a huge crash in Friday morning’s practice, and managed to piece together another BMW S1000RR, backed by Blysk Racing and Neuroperforma that made 183.7 horsepower on the Dynojet Dyno, crossing the scales at 389 pounds.

Top non-BMW S1000RR belonged to One Speed Racing Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja racer Trevor Daley of Mississauga, ON, sixth best after SuperPole “Q” sessions.  Former Amateur Superbike Champ Daley is back on the tour after a year’s sabbatical, and was third quickest in Friday afternoon Superbike sessions at SMP.
