The Pro 6 GP Race Series and the Canadian National Superbike Championship, CSBK, have confirmed an exciting opportunity for Period 3, P4, P5 and 250GP bikes to compete at Calabogie Motorsports Park. The focus of this plan is to offer a replacement for the recently cancelled Vintage Road Racing Association (VRRA) Calabogie round, due to ongoing Pandemic restrictions.
These vintage race classes will run in conjunction with the combined Calabogie CSBK National opening round/Pro 6 GP Race Series event.
To confirm the planned-for Calabogie Vintage race, a minimum of 25 competitors must register for the event by Friday, June 25. Vintage entry will be capped at 35. If Vintage class competitors are 2021 VRRA Members, a separate CSBK/Pro 6 GP Race Series membership is not required. Registration is available now at MotorsportsReg.
Vintage Races will be run with traditional period groupings in a dedicated Vintage race, with timed Qualifying.
Second and third “bump” class entry opportunities are available with the Pro 6 GP Race Series established Middleweight and Heavyweight Challenge categories. Spec tires are not required for these classes, and scoring transponders will be available to rent through Pro 6 GP.
