@FinnMotorsports • (Bushell Park, Saskatchewan, Canada) – The first round of the Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA) National Mini Roadracing Championship was completed this past weekend at 3 Flags Motorsports Park in Lumsden, SK. Carrying momentum from two successful regional rounds already completed this season, the Finn Motorsports team started off the national championship with a strong presence on the podium.
Finn Motorsports senior rider Jonathan Finn (11 years old), was able to find success at the opening CMA national round. “I was able to get a good launch off the starting line which is something I had been struggling with earlier this season. Keeping my head down and settling into a good race rhythm is really important to get to the front,” said Jonathan, who was able to find himself on the podium four times, including two race wins in the opening round of the CMA national championship.
Matthew Finn (9 years old), 2013 Canadian Motorcycle Association (CMA) national champion, showed dominance off the start by getting the holeshot in each of his two races in the national Youth class. Able to keep the challengers behind him for most of the race, Matthew could not hold on to the lead for the finish. “I knew I could be strong right off the start, but we geared the bike for faster top speed down the straightaway. I wasn’t able to keep them from getting the drive out of the corners on me,” said Matthew, who was able to finish the weekend with two strong 2nd place finishes.
With the 2015 racing season underway, the Finn Motorsports team continues to prepare for their busiest season yet, competing in the Pacific Coast, Western Canadian and Alberta regional championships as well as the CMA national championships. The team will travel over 10,000 km this season competing at events across western Canada. The team’s next race is the third round of the Pacific Coast Regional Series, June 21 at Greg Moore Raceway in Chilliwack, BC.
