Michael Leon will continue the long standing, championship winning relationship with Elka Suspension and Canadian suspension specialist John Sharrard of Accelerated Technologies. The team will use Elka rear shocks on its MV Agusta F3 and receive much needed support from Accelerated Technologies for the development of a chassis setup that will work on the often challenging Canadian tracks.
For the front forks, the team has chosen a closed cartridge kit supplied by Andreanni of Italy, a company that is well known in World Superbike and World Supersport circles.
Leon had a chance to test the new F3 at round one of the SOAR Regional Series. With a fourth place and two sixth place finishes, the results were not as good as hoped but the team left the event with a definite direction to improve the setup of F3.
The next event for the team will be the first round of the 2013 Canadian Superbike Championship, to be held at Shannonville Motorsport Park on June 9.
The Royal Distributing Racing Team would like to thank Royal Distributing, MV Agusta Canada, Motovan, Accelerated Technologies and Elka Suspension.
