Millson and Nickerson Primed for Mosport

HAMILTON ON, CANADA -- July 15, 2009 -- RMP Racing's Ross Millson and Steven Nickerson are primed for a great weekend at Mosport International Raceway's Doubleheader round of the Parts Canada Superbike Championship.

After a challenging race out west at Calgary's Race City Motorsports Park, Millson is looking forward to returning to Mosport to compete in Canada's premier road racing series aboard his Inside Motorcycles / Tri-City Cycle & Sports / Motovan sponsored #39 Suzuki GSX-R1000.

"The doubleheader round at Mosport is always a highlight of the season for me" said Millson. "Not only do I get to enjoy twice the amount of track time on such a renowned and technical track, I'm also able to spend time with family who live in the area."

Millson and Nickerson's pre-race weekend activities began last week when they sat down to talk with The Hamilton Spectator's Motorsports columnist, Tim Miller, to discuss Nickerson's racing background and his season so far.

This past weekend Nickerson enjoyed taking his #661 RMP Racing / Canadian Motorsports Expo / Infinet Designs sponsored Honda CBR125R for a few laps around the streets of the Exhibition Place as part of a series of demonstration races at the Honda Indy Toronto.

Nickerson, who has already achieved four consecutive podium finishes in the Honda CB125R Challenge series this season, is not only eager to race at Mosport but to also take in as many of Mosport's doubleheader festivities as possible.

This will be Nickerson's first race on Mosport's legendary 3.9km 10-turn road circuit.

"I'll be looking to Ross for lots of advice on line choice and setup" said Nickerson. "Horsepower in my class is limited so I really have to make the most of the draft, corner speed and line choice to gain an advantage.

Courtesy of CRC Racwear, the RMP Racing crew will be sporting new pit crew shirts that now feature the 2010 Canadian Motorports Expo logo. The Canadian Motorsports Expo (CME) is where the RMP Racing's season began last January and is proud to promote the 2010 CME which will be held January 22-24, 2010 at the International Centre in Toronto.

Motorcycle enthusiasts are invited to drop by the RMP Racing paddock to pick up the Official Series Program, a copy of the latest issue of Inside Motorcycles and to fill out a ballot to enter a draw for a Zox Helmet. Millson and Nickerson will be on hand throughout the weekend to chat with spectators and sign posters digitally printed by the Essential Image.

Canada's biggest motorcycle road racing event of the year is not only renowned for some of the best racing of the year it boasts numerous off track activities for all to enjoy.

Throughout the weekend Suzuki Canada will be offering demo rides on their latest models and on Saturday afternoon, July 18th, the first annual Motorcycle Road Racers Reunion will take place. Canadian recording artists Sloan and Crash Parallel will perform Saturday evening.

A three-day SuperTicket is just $60 at the Gate and each ticket includes parking, paddock admission, and entrance to Saturday Night Stock Car racing at Mosport Speedway. Children 12 and under are free when accompanied by a paid adult admission. Single day tickets are also available.
