Shannonville (ON), May 25, 2020 – RACE Events Inc. is pleased to launch the 2020 revised calendar of the Super Series, the regional and most popular motorcycle racing series. Based on its originally planned calendar, the Super Series (formerly known as RACE) will hold three racing events and a test weekend, starting June 5, 2020.
As the Ontario COVID-19 restrictions slowly decrease, motorsports organizations were able to reopen and resume their activities. Since the restrictions currently in place have a direct impact on how a race weekend timetable will be structured, patience and creativity are amongst the many qualities the team will need in order to conquer this challenge. The best strategy at this point will be to plan one event at the time.
Revised Schedule 2020
Friday, June 5 – Test Day
Saturday, June 6 – PreSeason Racing School
Sunday, June 7 – Test Day
Round 1 – July 17-19
Round 2 – August 21-13
Round 3 – September 18-20
With the strong determination of giving a face-lift to the series, Dominique Bondar, General Manager of RACE Events brings to the team a vast knowledge of racing and has assembled a team that will help her achieve her goal. The PreSeason Racing School will also be managed by the team.
Louey Jabouri – Race Director
Taking on the role of Race Director, Louey brings a wealth of racing knowledge to the team with decades of experience in both motorcycle and car racing. As a former competitor in both fields, Louey is a perfect fit to lead the events as he has a deep understanding of the distinctiveness of motorcycle racing.

David possesses all the qualities needed to be part of this team as Technical Director.

David was part of the series back in 1986 teaching the racing school and will be back at it again this year. Today, his professional life forces him to orbit around the motorcycle sphere and helps reveal his profound passion for that industry.
Jill Grummett – Chief Timing & Scoring
Jill, by accepting to take the role of the Chief Timing & Scoring, closes a long loop in the history of the series. Formerly managing the series herself and taking on almost all the responsibilities that came with the job, Jill comes back with a unique knowledge and tangible and very contagious enthusiasm.
