Superbike Doubleheader

By | | No Comments
Canada’s biggest motorcycle road racing event of the year is set for Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (CTMP) August 18-20. The weekend features Canada’s top motorcycle road racers as they compete for the national Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship, as well as a full slate of off-track, family-friendly activities including 11-time National Champion Jordan Szoke’s Extreme Show.

George Morin, Canada’s first ever Superbike National Champion, has been announced as the Grand Marshal for this weekend’s Superbike Doubleheader. Morin, who was inducted into the Canadian Motorcycle Hall of Fame in 2015, had a tremendous career that included securing the first ever Canadian National Championship in 1979. Prior to that, Morin accomplished a feat that has not been matched to date – in 1977 at St Felicien, Quebec he secured championships in three different classes including Expert Open Production (on a Kawasaki KZ1000), 400cc production (on a Yamaha) and 125cc (on a Honda). Morin retired from competition in 1982 with eight National Championships. Morin then moved into team management and worked for manufacturers including Yamaha, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki helping to guide champions including Michel Mercier, Jeff Gaynor, Miguel Duhamel, and Steve Crevier.
