Ontario Supermoto Season Set to Begin

May 28, 2012 9:50am
The Ontario Supermoto season is set to begin June 2nd with the first open practice track day at Supermoto Ontario’s practice track in Drumbo, Ontario. This practice day will offer riders an easy and affordable way to give Supermoto a try and racers will get a chance to get some practice in. The practice day will cost $40 per rider and each rider will need a Supermoto Ontario (SMO) practice membership or racing license.

The first SMO race of the season will take place Sunday June 17th at the Shannonville Motorsports Park near Bellville, Ontario.  The dirt section of the track has recently been rebuilt and the awesome Shannonville facilities will make this an event not to miss. There will be an open practice session on the track Saturday night (June 16th) and the races will run all day Sunday. The race will be round 2 of the Canadian National Supermoto Championship and round 1 of the Ontario Provincial Championship. Racers will require either a SMO or Supermoto Quebec racing license. Spectators are encouraged to come and check out the racing action.

For more info on the practice and racing events refer to the club website: www.supermotoontario.com

SMO and GP Bikes have partnered to bring a Supermoto specific session to their very popular track days at the Mosport Rider Development Track (RDT).  The RDT track has been referred to as the best Supermoto track in Ontario (pavement only) and now there are more opportunities to get out and ride it. The GP Bikes track days will be run on the following dates: July 2, August 1, September 3. Go to www.supermotoontario.com for details on how to register.

SMO is very thankful for having a number of sponsors come on board with the club recently. Parts Canada, Wheeling Cycle Supply, Mallette / Mclennan Insurance, Contractors Rental Supply Woodstock, Powersports Canada, Nineonenine Designs, Kennedy Motorsports/ Michelin Tires, Action Trailers and Maxima Oils have all made generous sponsorships to the club. Thanks!
