In 2015, the Canadian Superbike championship returns to Calabogie for the first time since 2009; they’re opening the season there.
In recent years, the CSBK series has undergone a bit of a decline. The calendar has been shrinking, and the season seems over before it starts. Now that Colin Fraser has officially re-assumed the control of the series through Professional Motorsports Productions, that seems to be changing.
The CSBK series visits Calabogie June 12-14 in 2015, opening the season there instead of the usual kick-off at Shannonville. Calabogie is usually the home of Pro 6 Cycle track days; they have a track day schedule this year for June 11, so race fans can get in a bit of action themselves. They also have track days the weekend before, from June 6-8.
Although the recently-announced visit to Edmonton will be a doubleheader, it doesn’t seem the Calabogie date will be.
The Calabogie track is 5.05 km long, with 20 turns and a 609-metre straightaway. It opened in 2006.
