Open Amateur: 2
Novice: 1
SM 250: 2 or 3
Veteran 35+: 2,3,4

A Pro/Am class (level 3,4) has been added. It's a non-championship class intended for Intermediate riders, Vet and Pro riders outside the top 5 in points. A way to give riders another class option for those looking to ride a 2nd class for more track time

Riders entering optional classes will be included in the event results and awards for the day.
Riders ranked in the top 5 National Standings may request to upgrade their license one level at any time during the season. Eg. 2-3 (Subject to approval by 2 officials)
Once advanced, riders may not step down one level until they have been absent for two complete seasons.

Noise should not exceed 98dB - This will be checked at certain events

Effective in 2014 : 
Intermediate and Quad Amateur 2013 champion will automatically advance into the Pro or Quad Pro class.
At the end of the season, any rider (in Novice, Amateur and Semi-Pro) within 10% of the champions’ total (including the champion) will be advanced to the next higher license level.  For example : 10% of 100 pts = 10 pts

April 15, 2013
 
Parts Canada triples their support with Supermoto Ontario.
 
Supermoto Ontario is very happy to announce that Parts Canada has renwed its sponsorship with Supermoto Ontario. "Parts Canada came onboard late last year and we are thrilled to have such a industry leader support our unique sport of supermoto. Supermoto has a small following but we are growing. In 2012 we have doubled our ridership and 2013 is looking to be even better." said Sam Harris SMO vice-president. Supermoto Ontario is the driving force behind 3 practice/race weekends at Shannonville Motorsport Park and we have also partnered with GP Bikes to offer pavement only practice at Mosport RDT track.
 
“Parts Canada is very excited to be partnering for a second year with Supermoto Ontario. This is a great group of enthusiasts that are passionate about Supermoto, and who are welcoming to anyone who is interested in racing, at any level. Supermoto is a fabulous and relatively inexpensive introduction to motorcycle racing, or can be a great place to go for something new and challenging if you’ve already had experience in other disciplines of racing. It is absolutely a great racing experience, and their environment is an excellent family experience. Supermoto Ontario is steadily growing and we are proud to be part of that growth and enthusiasm.”

Logan Murphy Media in for 2013

Logan came out to the last race of 2012 and made a bad ass video (check it out here).
He's planning to come out to all the races this season and make more cool videos. He's also offering up his go pro cameras to riders wanting to wear them for his videos.
"So for the upcoming supermoto season in Ontario/Canada, I will be freely lending my Gopros to SMO members at races I attend. Now this being said, you must have your own mounts, I will not be supplying mounts for you. Luckily you can get a “grab bag” for about 20 bucks. 20 bucks for footage of your race and not buying one for 200$ sounds like a steal to me!
I was also suggested that I have my laptop and hard drive to pull footage from racers to have even more diverse video. As an editor, more footage = better videos!"

Press Release: Avon Tires Come Try Supermoto Program



March 13, 2013


Supermoto Ontario is excited to partner with Avon Tyres to create the “Come Try Supermoto” program. 

Avon Tyres has stepped up to kickstart a new program enabling those with adult size off-road bikes the opportunity enjoy an all-inclusive package to test out Supermoto for the first time. By providing rental tires that will fit on stock MX wheels along with a set price for all the track fees, Supermoto Ontario and Avon have made it really easy to get in the game and have some fun. $200 covers your temporary race license/ club membership, use of tires, Saturday practice and Sunday race entry for one class. This event weekend will give you plenty of on-track practice leading into your first race with guys and gals at your skill level. It's a great way to enjoy a bike you already own in an all-new way and learn some skills that will make you a better rider.

The Avon Tyres “Come Try Supermoto” program will be offered on three dates for 2013 all at Shannonville Motorsports Park in Shannonville, Ontario. Book a spot for June 15-16, August 10-11 or September 28-29 weekends. *Deposit required.

To make it even easier, riders in the program will have access to free help in setting up the bike, access to riding tips, personal coaching and much more. For safety, bikes will need to be in good working order to start with and have a few simple changes made like swapping coolant for water so they meet track specs.

For more details on and how to take part in the Avon Tyres “Come Try Supermoto” program please visit the Supermoto Ontario Club website at 
www.supermotoontario.com

A special thank you to Avon Tyres and Parts Canada for bringing this program to life!

Supermoto X Fest 2012 Race Report


Words and Photos: Jerrett Bellamy

Sunny and hot 30+ degree weather greeted the riders at the Mecaglisse Circuit located an hour north of Montreal in the small town of Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci, Quebec. This event known as Supermoto X Fest marks round 3 of the Canadian National Supermoto Championship. X Fest is the highlight of Canadian Supermoto and draws the largest number of riders and spectators alike. Practice and heat races took place on the Saturday and the finals went down Sunday June 15.

The Mecaglisse Track is set in a beautiful area of Quebec and is a world class facility

The racing got off to a dramatic start with the SM1 Semi Pro class. When the first moto of two left the starting line Francois Asselin took an early lead. Coming into the 2nd corner, a tight right-hander Asselin pushed deep into the corner under braking. This allowed heat race winner Jerrett Bellamy to dart underneath Asselin to take the lead heading right into the large dirt table top. Asselin, attempting to regain the lead, grabbed a handful of throttle off the tabletop and came down colliding with Bellamy sending both riders to the ground. Since the 2 riders were at the front of the pack, this set off a chain reaction crash that claimed every rider in the crash. Needless to say the race was stopped and set to restart after a break to allow riders to fix their equipment.

Pictures from July 2nd Mosport RDT Track Day

I finally made it out to one of the track days GP Bikes organises at the Mosport Rider Development Track and I had a blast. That track is so much fun on a Supermoto. It isnt too wide open, has elevation changes and a bunch of corners you can back it into. We got a ton of track time in - probably 6 - 15 min sessions. There were only 4 of us signed up for the supermoto session so we just rode in the advanced group with the sport bikes. I'd never rode with sport bikes before and its crazy how much different supermoto lines are and how much deeper we can go on the brakes.
The next RDT track day is Aug 1. It would be awesome if we could get a bunch of supermotos out. It would only make it more fun. Give GP Bikes a call and get signed up!
Here are some pics that Dave Arnold took of Sam (#5) and I (Jerrett #67). I took a bunch of helmet cam video so hopefully I can get that edited soon and post it up too.

Canadian National Supermoto #2 Race Report

The 2012 Ontario Supermoto racing season kicked off June 17 at Shannonville Motorsports Park with the 2nd round of the Canadian National Championship. This was the first race promoted and run by the Supermoto Ontario Club and saw a significant increase in rider attendance from years past. This is a great sign for the revival of Supermoto Racing.

A beautiful, hot and sunny day greeted the riders and made for some great racing action on the track. It was the Pavement only class that got the racing started. After winning the heat race in a photo finish Evan Okopny started the main on pole position. He would get out to the lead off the start. Patrick Corcoran stalled his bike as the flag flew to start the race. By the time he refired he was nearly a lap down. Okopny took an easy victory over Corcoran in 2nd.

In the Novice class is was Serge Benoit who took the holeshot over his two sons Samuel and Jean Philippe. Evan Okopny stalked Jean Philippe for a few laps before using the power of his 510 Husky to make a pass down the long front straight for 3rd. Jean Philippe would later blow over the top of a berm in the dirt section dropping him further in the pack. Serge Benoit held his lead to take the win with son Samuel 2nd and Evan Okopny 3rd.
