Go west, young man: CSBK to Edmonton

The Canadian Superbike series is headed back out west, with a double-header next July in Edmonton.

The CSBK championship races at Castrol Raceway on July 10-12 in 2015, as part of a plan to incorporate more western dates.

“Our goal for the series is to establish a date long term in Edmonton at Castrol Raceway,” said Colin Fraser of Professional Motorsports Productions, CSBK’s parent company. “We would eventually like to return to the days of a multi-venue western swing for the series.”

Of course, CSBK has a long history of roadracing out west; back in the 1980s and 1990s, there were races in Vancouver and Gimli; Calgary was the last western track out of the series, with the final CSBK race at Race City in 2010.

The inclusion of the Edmonton double-header raises some questions. Will every weekend be a double-header, as some fans have asked for? If not, will there still be a double-header finale at Mosport, as usual? Supposedly, the schedule will be released soon.
