Montreal, Quebec.  August 15, 2011.

Michael Leon and Tony Stufko both rode the same Ducati 1198S to Second Place finishes at Round 4 of the RACE SuperSeries, on Sunday August 14, at Shannonville’s Long track configuration.

Tony borrowed the Royal Distributing / MBP Superbike, normally ridden by Michael, for Sunday’s Amateur Superbike final, when his machine was sidelined with engine woes during Saturday’s heat race.  He rode conservatively, but was still able to finish second and record some decent lap times.  The race was won by Kris Garvie with Adam Murray finishing third.  Tony is currently in third in the Amateur Superbike Championship standings.

In the Feature Pro Superbike final, Michael also finished in second place.  Michael was hoping to challenge for the win after a good battle with Jodie Christie during the Saturday heat race.  Unfortunately, during the Sunday final, Michael was only able to keep pace with race winner Jodie, but not able to get close enough to attempt a pass for the lead.  Suzuki rider Dan Willard finished in third place.  Michael’s only consolation is that he set the fastest lap of the race, a personal best on the Long Track configuration, with a time of 1:45:554.  The result moves Michael to second place in the Pro Superbike Championship standings.

The Liquid Cooled Thunder and Heavyweight Sportsman classes were canceled for the weekend due to low rider registration.

Please join the team at the track for Round 5, to be held at Shannonville, on Labour Day weekend.
