We needn’t remind you the past few years have seen a massive disruption in the scheduling of CSBK (csbk.ca) races. Given this, it was with a sense of relief that the season began this past weekend at Grand Bend Motorplex with a traditional venue and a predictable weekend schedule.
When Trevor Daley’s OneSpeedInc Suzuki GSX-R lined up on the second row of the grid for race one of two, Trevor had it in his mind to slot in with the leaders from the get-go. But racing, much like knife juggling, often proceeds unpredictably. Mired in the pack, Trevor put on a ride for the ages in slicing through to briefly hold 3rd position, before running wide and slipping to a creditable 4th at the checkered flag. Trevor’s charge forward netted him the fastest lap of the race.
Determined to atone for Saturday’s so-so start, Sunday’s race two saw Trevor get a much better launch. However, a mid-race incident saw Trevor launched out of his saddle, but like JB Mauney (none other than the greatest bull rider of all time) Trevor grabbed the reins, tamed the beast, and charged through to a stirring third-place finish. The Trevor Daley of 2022 has matured beyond the raw rider he was at the beginning of his career, but he still extracts every ounce of brio out of any machine he throws a leg over.
Given that his GSX-Rs were outfitted with a new electronics suite, Trevor was satisfied with the weekend’s results, but what makes him most enthusiastic is that he sees the potential for much more. A pair of upcoming test days will allow the team to further refine the setup and inch its way closer to the front. Next up on the official schedule are the sinuous curves of Calabogie Motorsports Park July 9th and 10th—we’d love to see you there.
