Dunlop Amateur Showdown winner to get National support

“Dunlop Amateur Showdown” Winner of Combined SOAR and RACE Events Get CSBK National Support

This Ontario motorcycle roadracing season, sanctioning groups SOAR and RACE are working together with a pair of Series race weekends.  SOAR is hosting the RACE group at Grand Bend Raceway on June 13-15, while RACE returns the favor by hosting SOAR racers at Shannonville Motorsport Park June 27-29. 

As part of this co-promotion, Dunlop racing tire distributor Pro 6 Cycle and the National Mopar CSBK organizing group have also joined up to provide a special bonus for Amateur Sport Bike class (approx 600cc) competitors. 

A two round, points-paying Series will recognize the appropriate Sport Bike-type class races at the SOAR and RACE-hosted events,  determining the top rising star in that category. The racer who achieves the best combined result from the two race “Dunlop Amateur Showdown” will receive a competition award sponsoring their entry for the final Amateur Sport Bike Mopar CSBK National rounds at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, August 15-17.

Dunlop distributor Pro 6 Cycle and CSBK will supply competitor entry and racing tires to the winner of the “Dunlop Amateur Showdown” for the C.T.M.P. National weekend.  The entry will include both Saturday and Sunday Amateur Sport Bike double header rounds, with the successful Amateur competitor receiving a maximum of six Dunlop DOT-type, class appropriate racing tires for use during the three day event.

The winning competitor must not have held a Pro motorcycle roadracing License, nor can they have competed in more than two previous National races.  SOAR and RACE organizers will be the final judges of the “Dunlop Amateur Showdown”, and ensure that all competitors respect the structure and spirit of the bonus competition.
