Superbikes at Mosport

The Parts Canada Superbike Championship series came to Mosport on the 19th and 20th of July, providing great racing amid a mix of weather.

It got very wet at one stage on the Sunday :

Very tight racing with numerous lead changes in Sunday's Superbike race (I think all 4 of the riders in this image led at some stage):

Only 2 Races!?

For the 29th of June, I trouped up to the beautiful Mont Tremblant/St Jovite area of Quebec for the Sommet des Legendes meeting at Le Circuit. Unfortunately, cancellation of the vintage racing component of this meeting meant that there were only two races on the program - the Cooper Tires Presents The Formula Atlantic Championship Powered by Mazda and a Mt Tremblant Challenge for sports cars.

I'm just glad I knew this before leaving and that I only went up for the Sunday! Otherwise, I might have been a tad upset at having made the journey for such a limited format. However, I must say that the racing in the Formula Atlantics definitely made the trip worthwhile. Besides, they're such groovy little cars.

As for the Mont Tremblant circuit, it's one of those that unfortunately has become badly disfigured with chainlink fencing everywhere. Hell to shoot at, but still managed to find some nice spots. However, there were almost no crowds present and it was a beautiful, just beautiful day, so I had fun. More pictures at
