Canadian motorcycle magazine Inside Motorcycles has renewed its title sponsorship of the Amateur Sportbike class for the 2012 MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship season.
Recognized as “Canada’s source for motorcycle news,” the magazine will once again contribute to the year-end prize fund for the class and promote up-and-coming riders through the magazine and the other media outlets of its parent company, Inside Track Communications. This is the second year Inside Motorcycles has sponsored the Amateur Sport Bike class.
In addition to its sponsorship of the Amateur Sportbike class, Inside Motorcycles will once again produce the official souvenir program for the 2012 MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship. The program will include previews of all six national classes and be available at every round of the series.
Last season Kristopher Garvie of Caledon, Ont. won the Inside Motorcycles Amateur Sportbike Championship riding a Kawasaki ZX-6R. He clinched the crown in the final weekend of the season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park over Magog, Que.’s Samuel Proulx and Amzy Nawaz of Thornton, Ont.
Previous champions of the Inside Motorcycles Amateur Sport Bike class, which was launched in 2003, include national pros Raphael Archambault, Cody Matechuk, and last year’s Pirelli Pro Sportbike National Champion Jodi Christie.
Saskatoon’s Brett McCormick, in his rookie season in the World Superbike Championship with the Liberty Racing – Team Effenbert Ducati squad, launched his career in the national Amateur Sportbike class in 2006.
This year’s Inside Motorcycles Amateur Sportbike Championship opens with the rest of the MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship at Shannonville Motorsport Park June 22 to 24 and concludes with a doubleheader back at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park August 24 to 26.
