Canadian Superbike champion Brett McCormick knew he could improve his Superstock racing, and last weekend, he proved it.
McCormick, who ran away with Canada’s national superbike title this year, managed to wrangle a deal to run in the last two races in the Superstick FIM 1000 series this season. He finished 13th out of 25 in his first race at Magny-Cours, but said he wanted a top ten finish at Portimao.
And, last weekend, he got it, finishing in tenth spot on his BMW S1000 RR, with an 18.267 gap. His fastest lap was 1’47.330.
Success like this is great news for McCormick; with major sponsors Parts Canada and Kawasaki leaving the Canadian Superbike Championship series, McCormick may be left without a national series to run here at home next season. Having success like this on his resume (he also raced AMA in New Jersey this fall) would certainly help him if he has to look elsewhere for racing opportunities.
