CSBK has added another pair of key sponsors for 2016, picking up two title sponsor for the Amateur Sport Bike series.
Helmet manufacturer Shoei and their Canadian distributor Motovan have announced they’re backing the amateur 600 class, as well as introducing customer, spectator and competitor-oriented competitions that will give away motorcycle equipment throughout the duration of the Canadian Superbike season.
The year-end payout for the Amateur Sport Bike class points leader will be $6,500; if the winner uses a Shoei helmet this season, they get a $1,000 bonus. The sponsors will have a cheque for the top seven finishers in the standings, to be presented at the CTMP (aka Mosport) double-header in August.
Last year, Alex Coelho piloted a Kawasaki ZX-6R to the amateur series win, ahead of second-place Phil Leckie (Suzuki GSX-R600). Both riders will be racing in the Pro Nationals this summer, starting in two weeks at the CSBK opener at Shannonville.
