Round 1 Report: Samuel Desmarais

Last weekend at the first round of the Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship at Shannonville Motorsport Park was a success for me and my team!

After a long winter of waiting and preparation, I finally accomplished a goal that I really wanted to achieve: finished on the podium in Liqui Moly Pro Sport Bike (600cc)! I am happy to start the championship on the right foot with a 3rd position. However, I know that I must continue to work hard to maintain this pace because the competition is very strong.

As for the Mopar Pro Superbike (1000cc) category, the practices and qualifications were very good for me. But, during the race I fell because of a small mistake, but it does not matter, because I will do better next time!

The support of my sponsors and supporters was what allowed me to perform this weekend.

A huge thank you to:
