Szoke Storms to Victory at the ‘Drome

Szoke storms to victoryThe looming sky gave an ominous feeling to the feature event of the Canadian Superbike Championship this past weekend at Autodrome St Eustache, located just outside of La Belle Province's city of Montreal.

Szoke starting from pole position launched his Mopar Express Lane backed BMW1000RR off the line cleanly to settle into second spot. Szoke reclaimed the lead early and pulled clear of the field for the 22-lap feature claiming the checkered 6.203 seconds ahead of his nearest competitor.

"The bike was fantastic all weekend, right out of the box," said Szoke on the podium after his 61st Canadian Superbike victory. "We have a great setup here, and this is my strongest track. Our bike's running amazing, and we had it dialled for the race. We ran into a bobble in the last corner which we determined was a fuel pump. I'm not sure that could have happened at a more convenient time."

Szoke was sniffing at his lap record during qualifying on Saturday which he set in July of 2015 at a 44.813 sec around the 1.93 km / 1.2 miles (10 Turns) circuit. Szoke claimed the Dalton Timmins Pole Position award posting the quickest lap at a 0:44.921 on Saturday afternoon, just a tenth shy of the record he was hoping for.

"We have a great setup and the Dunlop tire wear is fantastic. I have the lap record here at a 44.8, and I felt we could beat that today. I tried to do it at the end of the SuperPole session, but I had a little bobble—just pushing too hard."
