Race Results- Round 1 Paris Half Mile

 

Opening Round Brings Big Turnout and Big Excitement!

 

Saturday May 16th was the Flat Track Canada opener for the 2015 Championship Series! In threats of bad weather racers from all over Ontario, Quebec, Michigan, New York and even Illinois all came to ride the battle of the deep cushion. There’s absolutely no way really to describe how it is to ride the deep rutted and challenging surface of the half mile track at the Paris Fairgrounds other than it’s thrilling and very addictive.

 

 

A very promising 151 entries showed that there’s been an increase in interest in the sport of flat track. Not only did we see a surge in American racers, but a number of newcomers including a large number youths and adults. It seems to be a growing trend worldwide for road racers to take the stage in flat track racing since the influence from Marquez and Rossi. Last year Canadian Superbike Champion Jodi Christie and Canadian Super Sport Champion Kenny Reidmann competed in a couple of rounds of the FTC series. This year Canadian Superbike champ runner-up Trevor Daley gave flat track a try at the Paris Half mile, he was joined by the likes of other national road racers such as Kris Garvie, Ross Milson, and Tomas Casas. Well Daley showed a very impressive ride having a second and a first in his heats. In the DTX final after falling he still finished 7th and in the Open Intermediate final he pulled off a very impressive 4th place. As for the other road racers, Garvie placed 7th out of 17 in both Novice classes, with Casas finishing 8th in the Intermediates, pretty impressive with full fields. A slew of other amateur road racers were there competing giving the excuse that flat track is just too much fun without forking out a ton of money or committing a full weekend.

 

Trevor Daley

 

The big news of the weekend was the absence of reining Canadian Champion Don Taylor. Don’s wife is pregnant and overdue on her birth, therefore made a very difficult decision to miss out on the racing. That leaves a large opportunity for the championship to be up for grabs for 2015. In the Open Expert heat races, Steve Beattie and Chris Evans battled like they were in their 20’s, displaying the best racing and a top notch show. Beattie racing the small 450cc Honda and Evans on the 750cc Harley Davidson played tango on the race track swooping in passes turn to turn. The main event was poised as the one to watch as Bugs Pearson from Illinois rode his Water’s KTM 990 to a heat race victory over young fast GNC2 Daytona winner Justin Jones and 2014 FTC runner up Tyler Seguin.

 

 

In the DTX main event it was New York’s Justin Jones bringing home a comfortable win on his Yamaha YZF450 over Tyler Seguin on his KBR sponsored Honda CRF450.

 

 

 

The Open Expert final turned out to be probably Flat Track Canada’s greatest races and probably one of the best half mile races in Canada. For lap after Lap corner after corner fans were on their feet and cheering for the passing amongst the leading riders. First it was Tyler Seguin and Rob ‘bugs’ Pearson with the early battle. After only a couple of laps Seguin faded fast and it looked like a hungry Chris Evans warped from 1999 and put the pressure on Bugs Pearson, from that point on the race was spectacular. Bugs on the 990 KTM banging and crashing into Evans XR750 Harley, handle bar to handle bar they went for about four laps and then out of nowhere, Steve Beattie threw himself into the mix on his KBR Honda CRF450. Bugs started to fade at about the halfway point of the 15 lap main with the fan favourite, Doug Lawrence sitting back in about sixth position. The race was a constant battle between Evans and Beattie, with Beattie navigating his smaller nimble bike quickly through the turns, Evans would challenge back in the straight-aways showing off the big horsepower of the Harley. It was very neat to see and typically you’d only get to enjoy this big bike- small bike kind of battle here in Canada. As the last couple of laps to go it looked like Evans was in control of taking home the win, but as this point all eyes were on Doug Lawrence who went from sixth place to second in only a matter of a couple laps. The pressure was on and Chris knew Lawrence was coming, only a few more moments he had to hold on as the rough demanding track had taken its toll on the +50 year old Evans. As the riders come out of the final corner to the checkered flag, I vividly remembering watching Evans throw himself on his fuel tank just using every last bit of energy to bring it home for the big win! Well deserved and another very well respected win for Chris Evans.

 

 

 

In the Intermediate class Buchan came out with a big win in the DTX class with Braden Vallee finishing second despite having to start from the third row. In the Open Int, Buchan struggled with bike issues on his Kawasaki Twin, therefore leaving the door open for Braden Vallee who edged out Justin Crumb for the victory. Front runner Shane Corbeil struggled while blowing his engines in the heat races.

 

 

ATV’s showed a good turnout, Peter Grison taking home his first Flat Track Canada win on the Yamaha Banshee. Brandon Doucette built a Honda quad with CBR600 F4i engine in it, still working out the bugs it showed it worked fairly well finding a 5th place finish.

 

 

Another highlight was young superstar Dallas Daniels who made the trek from Illinois. This 11 year old showed he could run with the big guns and did an awesome job handling his bike to 3rd in the Novice class. Dallas also took home a win in the 250 class. Very promising performance and I’m sure we’ll see him back again.

 

 

In the full field of 85’s Chase Saathoff took home the win. Brian Newman from New York edged out Niagara Falls Hunter Bauer for second place, while Paris’ own Jimmy McCullough finished 4th.

 

 

We like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting, bike time thank you to all of the volunteers and a big thanks to our sponsors: Parts Canada, Harley Davidson, Suzuki, Diesel Equipment, Honda Canada, Dunlop, Kawasaki Canada, Sturgess Cycle, Grand River Powersports, Town Moto, Klotz, & Outlaw Productions.

 

 

 

We hope to see everyone this Saturday in Burford!

AGM Mintues

Flat Track Meeting- AGM (Feb.15/15) Paris, On

The start of the meeting was an introduction of how far we’ve developed from the start and gave insight to where we’d like to go in the future. The obvious suggestions were to make the championship series a ‘true’ National series which spreads across Canada. Part of the idealistic vision is to have televised events and to influence OEM support. All of which would help produce motorcycling to become a little bit more mainstream.

Obviously we have the meeting to receive input from riders and supporters of the sport to gain insight and communicate ideas for steps moving forward. There were various topics discussed at the meeting to help reach an understanding of how to develop the sport of flat track and help make it grow.

Below were the various topics discussed in bold with a summarized conclusion to the discussion.

Safety

                We want to start taking a proactive approach to safety as opposed to a reactive approach. We want to continue to promote safety and safety devices. Therefore we will have a safety advisor, Marc St. Amand, to aid newcomers and youth in the sport. Marc will help give good advice on different safety gear available on the market and advise some products that are best suitable for the sport.

The topic came up of mandating a back brace in to the rules. The back brace will eventually be mandated however there will be a grace period. The dates will be suggested in the near future.

We will also add a recommendation guide to the rule book. It will suggest the importance of different safety components that are recommended, however aren’t mandatory, the example of ear plugs for hearing protection was used.

A suggestion was made to jump start a gear exchange program. It would essentially allow parents to exchange equipment with other kids as they rapidly grow. It would help dramatically with the cost of things.

We will also be purchasing a wireless red lights to go around in various locations on any size venue. Therefore we can draw a red flag stop immediately on all parts of the track as opposed to bikes still racing to a flag which can be hazardous.

Plastic Bottle Drive  

                The idea of a safer barrier was suggested from fellow road racers Kenny Reidman and Jodi Christie that a canvas bag filled with empty plastic bottles make a great barrier for safety. In doing research study, this barrier has proven a safer concept than an air fence. Therefore we are collecting empty plastic bottles and hopefully influencing others to join us. We would like to keep building these barriers for different hazardous areas on larger tracks. This type of barrier would be used in conjunction with straw bales. We are collecting any type of plastic bottles, whether they are windshield washer fluid bottles, water bottles or plastic containers of that nature, we will accept them at Paris Speedway on any type of event day.

Tech Inspection

It was suggested that there was a check list for each. For 2016, we will have a tech inspection location at each venue, the inspection must be scrutinised by items of a check list and must comply with the safety standards.

Contingency

                As the sport grows and we start to introduce more OEM’s to the sport, more and more contingency programs will take effect. We talked about how typically the programs work and what the expectations are from riders. Kate Rundle was also on hand to talk about the ‘Team Green’ program and answer any questions that anyone had.

Flat Track ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ Program

The ‘Stars of Tomorrow’ was introduced at the Motorcycle Spring Show in Toronto on Mar.21-22. The idea was to help give exposure for the young riders and for the sport, showing the amount of support from young followers and the prosperous future it wields. On Sunday there was workshop that included advice to help prepare for interviews, pictures, public speaking and developing relationships with potential sponsors. The program proven to be a success and it looks like it will be viable program for the future.

Video Footage

Outlaw Productions is looking for ‘webseries’ footage, therefore if you forward ‘GOPRO’ footage to him, you have a good chance that the footage might be displayed.

Transponders

We have a sponsor supporting us to acquire a system for 2015. It’s the newest state of art system. During 2015 we will set up, test and develop the software and smart phone app. The rules will mandate Intermediate and Expert classes to have a transponder for 2016. Riders who acquire a transponder for 2015 will be able to test utilize the timing and scoring procedures used. 2016 practice and qualifying sessions will take place to build the race program.

Rule Changes   

  1. Points, this will be the new points structure for each of the classes at all of the events.

  1. A DNS for final, the rider will acquire 0 points. Once they made the ‘Original start to the race’ they will be awarded points. If two riders fall and cannot continue, their order it will result in the previous lap or how they qualified for the race if at least one lap hasn’t been completed.
  2. DNF’s are still awarded points if the ‘original final start’ was made.
  3. Red flag finishes result in the previous lap, excluding fallen riders.
  4. Races can be called a finish after 75% of the race is completed (to the referee’s discretion)
  5. Restarts must be given at least a minimum of 3 laps
  6. If a rider is the cause of a restart a second time in a final, the rider may be excluded (at the referees discretion)

 

Expansion

                It was discussed that our goal is to be in Calgary and Quebec by 2017. This goal has many challenges and there was a discussion about what classes the expectations were to travel and what the different methods of logistics available. It was suggested to have an East/ West class for most of the amateur classes and have the Experts travel abroad with an expectation of the top 10 competitors.  They mentioned that it would be beneficial to be a double header. Most riders were willing to travel to the Quebec/ Ottawa area.

Event Itinerary

                The idea was to change the itinerary and make it similar to the Leamington race. Where most of the qualifying races take place before the actual ‘show’ or opening ceremonies (advertised start time).

This would run all practice and qualifying heats earlier in the day with the exception of Expert heats which would open the show.

Tighten time in between races… checkered flag lap with interview, while the next race stages its race.

No tolerance or waiting time for riders who aren’t staged and ready. A rider must have a team member tell us to wait to have the 2 minute rule apply.

Charities  

                We’re getting charities involved with the London event this year to help increase exposure for the sport. If the model seems to work, we will replicate it at each of the venues for 2016. Any suggestions for charities local to the communities of the venues…

Promotional Days

                Flat Track Canada has plenty of events planned and booked for increasing the promotion and exposure of the sport. Any help will be necessary and are always looking for volunteers.

450 vs. DTX class

                A topic was brought up about replacing the DTX with just an open 450 displacement class, allowing ‘framers’ to be able to participate in the class. Currently there is an Open class and a DTX class, the point of having the DTX class is keep all of the bikes equal and in the same production category. All of the bikes and rules in this class are easily obtainable throughout the industry. For the most part these bikes are highly competitive amongst themselves and share an identity that is highly recognizable to the untrained eye. The DTX option is the most simple and easy solution to a start in flat track racing, and this must be influenced through all levels of classes. OEM’s typically have a hard time supporting something they aren’t familiar with or if they feel it could be unfair. In this case the DTX class is a fair playing field for all levels and the products are identifiably production based. Therefore we’ve chose to continue with the ‘Production Class’ and the ‘Open Class’ for 2015.
