Two-time defending Parts Canada Superbike champion Jordan Szoke underlined his status as the king of Canadian road racing with an impressive performance to conclude the opening day of the official Pirelli test at JenningsGP in Jennings, Fla.
The Brantford, Ont. racer rode his Canadian Kawasaki Motors Kawasaki ZX-10R to the fastest overall time on Tuesday with a one minute, 14.600 second lap around the 3.219km (2.0-mile) JenningsGP circuit.
He backed that up with the second best overall time, and the top Yoshimura Sport Bike lap at 1:15.132 aboard the brand new Kawasaki ZX-6R.
“It felt good,” said Szoke of his Superbike lap, which was just shy of the track record of 1:14.51. “On my second lap on that tire I actually got through turns one and two better, but I ran into trouble later on the lap. But it’s so hot right now; I think if it was a little cooler we could run into the 13s.” To read the rest of the article: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/497/3271/Motorcycle-Article/Szoke-Leads-First-Day-of-Canadian-SBK-Test.aspx
