RACE action perfect

The fourth round of the RACE Superseries championship (is it half-way through the season already?!!?) went off in absolutely perfect conditions last weekend, with big grids and lots of tight action.

Shannonville specialist and crowd favourite Frank Trombino checked out in the Pro Superbike race, with Andrew Nelson and Matt McBride banging on each other in close pursuit to the flag.

Fourth went to Franklin Dominguez of the Dominican Republic, who’s racing in Canada this year and looking more impressive at every event. Karl Daigle finished a remarkable fifth after running off on the third lap and dropping to dead last, while Marie-Jo Boucher continued her stellar debut Pro season with a good seventh.

In the 600 Pro event, Trombino was also on top of the box until a red flag for a crash by Scott Rupert halted proceedings. After the restart, Nelson put his head down and beat Trombino to the flag by 0.2 seconds, with Daigle third, followed by McBride, Boucher, and Elie Daccache.

The next RACE event is the big one of the season, set for Shannonville’s Long Track July 26-27.
