First ever PRO wins for Connor Campbell in the Super Series
Shannonville (ON) August 24, 2020 – Friday’s rain may have delayed the testing sessions, but spirits remained optimistic as a large contingent of racers competed in the second round of the Super Series this past weekend.
Elie Daccache continues to dominate the Pro Superbike ranks, again, handily winning both races of the weekends’ double-header. Daccache took his Yamaha R1 to commanding wins, unchallenged in his efforts. Kingston’s Chris Fehr had a race long battle with Daniel-Eric Ouimet but held off the flying Quebec rider to maintain the second step of the podium. The top three Pro’s repeated their results on Sunday, cementing the double-header scores.
In Amateur Superbike action, Jordan Royds maintained his momentum with another brilliant ride and finished in first place. In second was Dan Lewczuk with Martin Perreault in third. Royds again took the win on Sunday with the same duo of Lewczuk and Perreault chasing him to the podium.
Connor Campbell earned his first win as a Pro in the Sportbike contest with a large lead. The 21-year-old rider repeated the stunning performance in Sunday’s race. Chris Fehr, who brought seven trophies home this weekend, and Dave Buckland exchanged places on the two days with Fehr finishing second on Saturday and Buckland taking the honors on Sunday.
The Amateur Sportbike action saw Richard Diaz and Brad Macrae fight intensely on Saturday’s race. Unfortunately, their battle – and the race – ended abruptly when Diaz lost control of his machine and both riders collided in corner four. Luckily, without severe injuries. Going back one lap for finishing results, Diaz got first place, followed by Macrae. Nathan Playford got third place. Sunday’s contest saw Playford take the top step of the podium, with a hard-charging Matt Simpson battling in second leaving Matthew Annable to take third place. Simpson had a race long battle with Annable for second place. The two riders exchanged places several times but when the checkered was waved, it was Simpson in second leaving Annable in third.
The Novice class presents a fine selection of newcomers to motorcycle road racing this season. Drew Weber showed he has the skills and performed very well with two wins this weekend. In second place was Ian Broomfield both days followed by Eric Gionet and Wesley Barnes, respectively for Saturday and Sunday.
The weather held all day, but the humidity was getting heavier and heavier until a dark cloud burst on the Sidecars race on Sunday. Those odd, yet charming machine offered an enjoyable and entertaining show and a win with a margin of 0.335 seconds over Ian Boddaert over Colin Duncan. Duncan was followed by Russ Miller who won the previous day with Boddaert in second and Michael Vinten in third.
The third and final round of the Super Series will take place on September 19th and 20th. For more information, visit www.super-series.ca or follow the Super Series on Facebook.
