Round 1 Report: Sebastien Tremblay

Shannonville Motorsport Park Round 1: Challenge Accepted

The long wait for the 2024 Bridgestone Canadian Superbike Championship season is finally over. After a productive winter building our Suzuki Canada GSX-R750, the time to go racing finally arrived.

During the regional race that preceded the National weekend, a rumor circulated that a certain rider with the last name Young was going to compete in the Economy Lube Pro Sport Bike class. We were already motivated to test our mettle against the best known riders in the Canadian Sport Bike class and some very talented new up and comers but the late addition of the 3 time Superbike champion only fueled our desire to compete and win against the best riders available.

The team worked consistently and tirelessly all weekend long to offer Sebastien a bike worthy of his talent. 

We have been switching between our 2 bikes in practice, trying to find the difficult setup needed to be fast AND consistent on the challenging Shannonville surfaces. Qualification was done on our B bike which has a much "softer" set up than the A bike. That brought us second place on the grid which is a good place to be. Interesting findings running the B bike fast made the team decide to run the A bike with a modified set up. 

Let's go racing!

Race one was a good race. Second place is always a good result but we wanted more. Sunday race 2 had the whole team ready for war. Sebastien delivered by leading from the first corner to the finish flag. What a weekend!

Now we must prepare for Grand Bend.

Let's race!
