The final 2020 “old Mosport” race marks the completion of the much delayed 40th annual National Superbike season in Canada, with other series rounds staged at Calabogie Motorsport Park, ON.
The Covid19 pandemic halted the planned 2020 program, and until July it was not clear that any CSBK events could take place this season, with or without spectators. Eventually an agreement with Track Day and motorcycle Racing School Provider Pro 6 Cycle of Toronto, ON, allowed CSBK organizers Professional Motorsports Productions to stage an abbreviated season, focused on the premier category.
National, Regional and Municipal guidelines ensured that spectator attendance was not permitted during any 2020 CSBK National events.
The last C.T.M.P. Superbike Feature race, presented by I.B.E.W., marked the crowning of Jordan Szoke of Lynden, ON, as the overall National Champion. This was the fourteenth time that Szoke, sponsored by Canada General Warranty and piloting the factory-supported Kawasaki ZX-10R Ninja, has earned the overall title.
Szoke’s closest competitor on the all-time Champion title holder’s list is Steve Crevier of Port Coquitlam, B.C., who took six overall National Superbike Championships during his illustrious career. Crevier won the overall National title with Yamaha (1989), Kawasaki (1991-1993) and Honda (2000, 2001).
