Marcel,

Are you still "seriously considering", or have you signed the paperwork for your new S1000RR? I hope you do it; it'd be great to see your video/race reports in the Liter-bike classes, and it's just a small jump up from the 750's. Are you still planning on running six different bikes next season?

Admittedly, I didn't read any of your reports until Shelina Moreda forwarded me one. Word of mouth is still the best marketing!

Good luck with your decision making! Hope to see some great pictures and writing in the Track Time section for 2012!

I am almost there.. lol My local bmw dealership agreed to sponsor me too. Another 15hun into the pot.. I'll know more in a week.

In the mean time, please vote for my Irnieracing Champion Video Sponsorship Entry. Champion Spark Plugs has created the perfect sponsorship video contest, designed for people like me. "The person uploading the Entry must be the creator of the Video and will be deemed the entrant."

"During the Finalist Voting Period, persons wishing to vote must enter their name, date of birth and a valid email address, and complete the online registration form. Once a vote has been submitted and received by Sponsor, the person submitting the vote will earn one Sweepstakes entry (“Sweepstakes entry”). There is a limit of one vote per Entry per person per day..."

"One (1) Grand Prize winner will receive USD$50,000, awarded in the form of a check. Five (5) Finalist Prize winners (one per category) will receive USD$10,000, awarded in the form of a check. Voting Prizes: Two hundred (200) Champion t-shirts and Kevin Harvick autographed hero cards will be awarded."

I would really appreciate it, if everyone would take the time to sign-up and vote once per day from now till February 5th. This would certainly guarantee the purchase of the bmw s1000rr.

Welcome

Welcome to the forum,... eh.

It would be nice to have another rider from the Great Northwest among us, and I love your pictures.

The lake in the first pic looks so familiar, like those just east of the Cascades. Lake Okanagan? Am I right?



Duh. Your caption says it is. What a dufus I am.

"Irnie Racing Shifts Up for 2012!"

Marcel Irnie has a new agenda for 2012. The Kelowna BC native welcomes a new teammate, a new motorcycle, a full-time Canadian crew chief and exciting new sponsors to assist the team with their challenging privateer program – The MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship!

Andrew Rogers of Gig Harbor WA joins Marcel as his teammate for 2012. Rogers, who has only raced for one full season, is already the fastest Novice racer in Washington.

Jason Williams of Ottawa will be playing a pivotal role in the pits as crew chief. Williams’s mechanical background and race track experience will be an invaluable resource to the team’s race program.

The team will be racing the entire Canadian Superbike Championship Series with Irnie piloting the potent AMSOIL 2012 BMW S1000RR in the Pro Superbike class and Rogers piloting his 2009 Yamaha R6 in the Amateur Sportbike class. The team has allocated 10 weeks for traveling to Eastern Canada to compete in the series, but also intends to race several events in Washington, Oregon, and hopefully California.

Irnie will be consistently racing on competitive equipment this year with his new BENTLEY Motorrad BMW. In previous years, Irnie had been racing on underpowered 600cc machines and learned to make do with less. He achieved two victories in 2011 on borrowed equipment, so having competitive machinery for a complete campaign will be a welcome change.

Irnie commented, "We are running a very serious privateer race program for 2012. I will be competing in the Pro Superbike class and Amateur Rookie Andrew Rogers competes to win the Amateur Sportbike class. The Pro Superbike class features the fastest bikes and the fastest factory riders in Canada, while the Amateur Sportbike class produces the fastest 600cc Amateur National racers. We will be traveling the Canadian National Series for ten weeks straight, racing and filming to promote the Irnie Racing brand and sponsors. We will also race seven WMRRA/OMRRA/AFM regional races before and after Canada. I will be producing the 2012 Irnieracing.com Canadian Superbike Tour HD Documentary. I have discussed this with series organizer Kevin Graham, and he is happy that I will be filming his series from the on-board GoPro perspective."
