Canadian Harley-Davidson XR1200 Cup Series Returns for 2012

Written by  on Tuesday, 19 June 2012 08:30

The Mopar Canadian Superbike Series kicks off this weekend with Round one at Shannonville Motorsports Park and the spec-bike Canadian Harley-Davidson XR1200 Cup Series returns as part of the 2012 National Championship. The racing is expected to be as thrilling and fast-paced as ever. 

Darren James, Manager, Racing Programs, for Deeley Harley-Davidson® Canada, brought the Harley‑Davidson XR1200 Cup Series to Canada in 2011, and after spending the spring gaining more racing experience by competing in the equivalent American AMA series, Darren enthuses “it’s awesome to see the excitement of the racers wanting to compete in the Canadian series. I know the 2011 Series champ Steve Crevier is back, strongly supported once again by the team at MotoSport Plus in Kingston, but I can’t wait to see the competition that all the racers on the grid this season have in store for Steve! This class is so much fun; it really boils down to the individual racers know-how and experience. I can’t wait for the opening round in Shannonville”. Currently sitting in eighth place in the AMA XR1200® Series point standings and having achieved four top-ten finishes in the American series, Darren now faces the competition of Canadian mixed calibre racers in the Canadian Harley‑Davidson XR1200 Cup Series.

The Canadian Harley-Davidson XR1200 Cup Series is a spec-bike series featuring specially modified Harley‑Davidson XR1200 and XR1200X motorcycles. Vance & Hines will once again be the official kit supplier for the class, and similarly to the American AMA XR1200 Series, Canadian XR1200 Cup competitors will use racing fuel.
