As reported earlier in CMG,
16-year-old road racer Jodi Christie will be racing in Canada this year after the AMA Red Bull Rookies Cup, where he’d gotten a ride, collapsed.
Christie and his RozGar Racing team have (amazingly …) lined up Honda support, with backing from the Honda Powerhouse Dealers of Ontario. In his first Pro season, he’ll be racing a CBR600RR in the Parts Canada national Superbike and 600 classes, and will also compete in the same classes in the RACE series at Shannonville.
As noted earlier, equipment preparation and support will come from Ben Gartner and his ProStar Motorsports company.
"I am very happy to be teamed up with the Honda Powerhouse Dealers of Ontario and ProStar Motorsports," Christie said. "I am confident we have a solid team put together for my Pro rookie season. I am anxious to race with the other Pro riders and learn from this experience."
Christie burst onto the national racing scene last year by claiming the Armour Bodies Amateur 600 Sport Bike title in his first attempt with three wins in six races. He also earned pole position in qualifying for every round and set class lap records at three venues.
In Ontario, Christie won the Amateur Superbike and 600 Sport Bike titles in the RACE SuperSeries Championship based out of Shannonville Motorsport Park with eight race wins, nine podium finishes and four lap records.
