LAST chance for Flat Track School in 2014

With the weather turning into full blown fall, October 18th will be the LAST chance to get in the Flat Track School hosted at the Paris Fairgrounds.  This school is for you, be it your first time on the track, or a regular racer, this course will teach you what you need to know about the track and the bike.  All while having fun with your friends.

The agenda for the day is straight forward. We will have a group discussion about the bikes and how to control them on the track. Once finished with the intro, we will have you suit up and head on the track in groups of four. Our instructors will be on the track to watch and help guide. Once everyone has had a turn on the track we will break and have a more in depth discussion about riding, and so fourth.  Around 4pm the track will be open to “dial in” what you’ve learned from the day.
We have 250cc and 450cc to choose from. You must bring your own helmet.  We always suggest to bring what you have in regards to gear. Boots, motocross gear, road racing gear.   If you don’t have any gear, we can get you covered with all our THOR gear supplied by Parts Canada.
NEW DATES WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY FOR 2015… WE WILL START IN APRIL.
Email us at Info@flattrackcanada.com to sign up today!
Or you can call us at 226-203-2100

2014 Flat Track Canada’s Champions

                  

                      Flat Track Canada Crowns 2014 Champions

   After an eleven race national series spread over the past five months, Flat Track Canada has named its champions for the season.  In only their second year of existence, Flat Track Canada witnessed an increase in the calibre of competition, as well as the addition of new tracks and new classes, which resulted in many classes not being decided until the final race of the year.

   There may have been new tracks on the schedule but one thing that remained the same from the sanctioning bodies first season was Don Taylor grabbing the number one plate in the Open Expert class. Taylor, who started strong by winning the first race of the season, is still the only Open Expert champion the young series has had. Spreading his seat time between a Harley Davidson XR 750, a KTM motocross based machine, as well as a Jim Sehl prepared Yamaha 450, Taylor won four races on his way to the title.

   Welland Ontario native Tyler Seguin came out on top in the Expert DTX class. Riding a Honda 450 machine, Seguin picked up two wins on the season but was on the podium almost every race which helped pave way to his championship.

   Intermediate action saw eighteen year old Braden Vallee ride smooth and consistent all year which allowed him to grab the titles in both the Intermediate Open and Intermediate DTX classes. Vallee split his time between his Kawasaki Kx450f and the exotic Zaeta 530 DT on his way to the top.

   Other Flat Track Canada Class Champions:

   Open Novice: Trent Pickle

   DTX Novice: Kyle Sheppard

   VET: Steve Ball

   250 Novice: Logan Wilson

   Speedway: John Kehoe

   ATV Open: Steve Lagro

   ATV Youth: Spencer Whittam

   85cc: Hunter Bauer

   65cc: Hunter Bauer

   50cc Chain: Branden Keys

   50cc Shaft: Maguire Scott

   Flat Track Canada would like to congratulate the 2014 champions as well as all of the competitors for a great season. They would also like to thank the 2014 series sponsors: Town Moto, Inside Motorcycles, Klotz, Zaeta, Parts Canada, Hindle, Motorsports Canada, Harley Davidson and Outlaw Productions.

London 1/2 mile greets Flat Track Canada with open arms!

Welcome Back London

After last holding an event in 2007, Western Fairgrounds in London hosted a race thanks to some hard work by Aaron Hesmer and the rest of the Flat Track Canada crew. With its great grandstands, banking on both the corners and straightaways, and its “big show” atmosphere, this was likely the premier stop on the racing tour for 2014.

   We can only imagine at this point how the point standings would look in the Open Expert class if family man Steve Beattie had the time and ambition to hit all the races. After grabbing the win on Saturday night, Beattie now has two firsts and a second in the three races he has competed in. Other riders in this class have got to be breathing a sigh of relief that the old man only jumps onto a race bike on occasion.

   Grabbing the victory on Saturday was no easy task for Beattie however as bike problems with his trusted Harley late in the week left him scrambling for a ride. Beattie called his brother Doug on Friday night and Doug graciously agreed to step aside and let Steve ride his Kurt Biegger J&M 450 for the race in London. Kurt and P.J. Biegger quickly prepared the bike for Beattie and the stage was set for a great ride in the open final.
