The Canadian Superbike Championship continues to announce new sponsors; now, they’re announcing Italian aftermarket manufacturer Magneti Marelli as the title sponsor for CSBK’s amateur superbike national series, and presenters of the pro superbike Superpole award.

“We’re proud of our association with the CSBK series, and want to see the tour grow, and that takes support in all areas of motorcycle sport, Amateur and Professional,” says Jim Kiritsis, a Magneti Marelli bigwig. “Magneti Marelli has a great history in motorsport, and we are excited to take part in Canadian Superbike Series which also has a rich history.”

Superpole winners will get $500 cash for being the fastest qualifier for each pro superbike round. Last year, Jordan Szoke won all but one of the superpole events. Trevor Daley won last year’s amateur superbike title.

When CSBK lost their title sponsor Parts Canada back in 2011, some onlookers had grim predictions for the organization’s future. Thankfully, the race series has been able to sign on several new sponsors in the years since.
