The weather was not the only records broken this weekend! Four races were held at Mission Raceways during the 2013 Canada Day long weekend which saw Pacific Riding School's Mark "Kramer" Kruger take home two first place and two second place wins. Competing were Washington's 250 champion Adam Faucette and multiple time B.C. champion Troy Burstyk amongst a grid of approximately 20 racers. During the 40 degree temperature weekend, Adam and Kramer proceeded to break the 250 lap record seven times while battling for the win from the 123.023 lap record set last year by Oliver Jervis (2006 B.C. Superbike Champion) to the current standing lap record of 121.440. Fans witnessed Kramer and Adam's bikes "gently bumped" each other on 3 occasions during their battles at speeds over 110 km/h as they tried to beat each other entering turn 2, exiting turn 3 and the biggest impact going into turn 6 on the last lap of Pacific Riding School's 250 "Race of Champions". The Canada Day race weekend saw record numbers of spectators who endured the high temperatures. Race results can be found on the WMRC website and a special thanks to PRS's Paul Chen (BC Motorides) for his use of his rental Kawasaki Ninja 250s which were used by Troy Burstyk and Kramer.
We would like to thank all the sponsors: Westcoast Superbike School, Arrow, "The Dark Side Super Moto", M-Speed Performance, BC Motorides.
Lastly, thank you to all the PRS alumni for coming out to show their support as they made up 70% of the spectators in the stands.... Kramer loves you all....:)
