Tomorrow, Two-Time overall CSBK National road racing Champion Michael Taylor will be inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame at their 14th annual Banquet and Reunion at the Sheraton Airport Hotel in Toronto.
To celebrate this historic occasion, CSBK offers the final shot of our “15 Days of Taylor” Feature.
This image is from Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and Saturday of the 2000 National, with the Heat race start for the Open Sport Bike Pro support class. Entries were so large that the Heats needed to be split in half, and racers needed to do well to qualify for the final, Flat Track style. Pictured, class points leader Michael Taylor (# 15 Kawasaki) leads Francois Dumas (#67 Kawasaki), John Sharrard (#25 Yamaha), Joe Gill (#46 Yamaha), Jean-Francois Cyr (#45 Honda) and the rest of the heat field into turn one after the start.
