CSBK not to crown series champions for 2020 season
CSBK and Professional Motorsports Productions have decided not to crown champions or give out special awards for the shortened 2020 National Road Racing season.
The season was shortened to just two weekends, held at Calabogie Motorsports Park July 24-26th, and Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (old Mosport) August 14-16th.
Jordan Szoke swept the Pro Superbike series, and CSBK has decided to award Szoke his 14th Canadian National Season Championship (congratulations Jordan!)
CSBK has made the decision not to crown champions in other classes, however as of the final Mosport Round, Mike Maguire #613 Motomike Canada Racing Team Kawasaki Ninja 400 had scored the most points, standing only a single point ahead of the next closest competitor!
Having not raced motorcycles competitively since 2005, Maguire was essentially unknown in the series, but quickly became a top contender with a solid second place finish at the inaugural round held at Calabogie Motorsports Park.
Rounds 2 and 3, both held at Mosport, saw Maguire attain a 5th place in the wet followed by another 2nd place finish in a hotly contested 3rd race. After leading most of the race, he was passed by Matthew Simpson (Yamaha R3) and Jacob Black (Kawasaki Ninja 400) heading into the final turns, and managed to pass Black back for 2nd in the final corner.
Motomike Canada would like to thank CSBK, PMP, Pro6, LiquiMoly, AIM Insurance, and everyone else who managed to piece together some semblance of a season for us to race in 2020.
We look forward to the 2021 season, where we hope to successfully contest the series once again.
UPDATE, 2021 Season has been announced here:
