May 14, 2013 (Toronto, ON) - Famed Italian aftermarket manufacturer Magneti Marelli has confirmed their sponsorship support for the 2013 Mopar Canadian Superbike Championship motorcycle road racing series. The versatile and innovative company will become the title sponsor for the Amateur Superbike National Championship Series, as well as the presenting sponsor for the new Magneti Marelli Pro Superbike SuperPole Award.
Part of the Fiat Group, innovation and quality are at the core of Magneti Marelli. The company invests heavily in research, development and engineering, and is also a global leader in the aftermarket.
“We’re proud of our association with the CSBK series, and want to see the tour grow, and that takes support in all areas of motorcycle sport, Amateur and Professional,” explains Jim Kiritsis, Senior Manager, National Service and parts. “Magneti Marelli has a great history in motorsport, and we are excited to take part in Canadian Superbike Series which also has a rich history.”
The Amateur Superbike class joined the CSBK tour in 2011, due to competitor demand. Since its inception the 1000cc junior production based category has featured plenty of action. Last season, Trevor Daley won the National crown in Amateur Superbike, surviving a wild final double header weekend at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park near Bowmanville, ON.
