    I remember a thriller with Oliver Jervis and Mark Kruger last year. This is a great idea. I think back to the $25,000 Superbike race the club put on at Westwood. Gary Goodfellow on the Britten, Mike Baldwin on his NSR500 (or was it his NS 500?) and a raft of others. They came out of the woodwork with 25 grand up for grabs. Thanks to all for putting up the purse.

    WMRC held a double round and special event Canada day long weekend!!!!

    During the 2013 Canada day long weekend the WMRC presented a 250 gold cup race with invites from past and present champions including Washington and Alberta 250 racers making the journey and $2000.00 purse. The 250 races saw Pacific Riding School's "Kramer" take two first places and two second places while Washington's, USA 250 champion Adam Faucette battled for two 1st place and two 2nd place finished splitting the 4 races between the two. West Coast Superbike Schools multi time B.C. champion Troy Burstyk amongst a grid of approx 20 racers also battled for the lead. During the 40 degree temperature weekend Adam and Kramer proceeded to break the 250 lap record seven times during the heated battle from the original 123.023 lap record in 2012 set by Oliver Jervis 2006 B.C. Superbike Champion to the current standing lap record of 121.440. It was witnessed that Kramer and Adam's bikes hit each other on 3 occasions during their battles at speeds of over 110 kph as they tried to beat each other going into Turns 2 on the first lapin the first occasion, coming out of turns 3 and the biggest impact of the battle witnessed by all spectators going into turn 6 on the last lap of the "Pacific Riding School 250 Challenge Race". During the Canada Day race weekend the announcer (Scott Borthwick) tagged the race tracks turn #4 as "Kramer's corner" as it was said that the speeds appeared to be completely out of control with consistent slides almost sending the rider off the track on numerous oaccasions. The event saw record numbers of spectators which endured 40 degree temps race results can be found on the wmrc.ca website.

    In most parts of the world the 250 class is packed. In BC the 250 class runs at three different tracks. Mission, Chilliwack and Quesnel. The 250 show at the last race at Mission was fun for everyone and the club put on a super show.
    The next 250 race is at the Greg Moor Raceway in Chilliwack July 21st and, if you like tight racing, that is a great venue.

    The Honda Canada Gold Cup pays money for the 1st,2nd and 3rd place registered Honda CBR250R riders in the series. They are the only manufacturer directly involved in supporting our sport with podium cash for thier bikes.

    Thank's to all the volunteers and the sponcers who made the kids walk and the 250 race happen

    Great info Duncan. The gold cup is a great series.
    ...There was another event that paid money to any rider that finished in the top 7 regardless of bike brand (wmrc/prs Race of Champions). Still waiting for the combined results to be posted

    Since there were a large number of protests to electronic scoring, I'm still waiting on the officials to sort it all out. once that is done, then they will be posted. If I would guess, I'd say at least one to two more weeks.

    Are the competitors that are not filing protests going to be contacted/notified of a change to the finishing order?

    Only if they are directly affected. This is not just for this one race, but for all results. They are published as a single file.
