Series set for TV debut.
TORONTO, ON - The 2002 Parts Canada Superbike Championship makes its on-air debut this weekend. Round 1 will premier on The Sports Network (TSN) at 6:00 pm EDT Sunday evening.
The show is the first of eight half-hour programs for the national motorcycle road racing series and will feature action from the opening round of the 2002 season at Shannonville Motorsport Park May 19.
Noted TSN motorsport voice Vic Rauter will handle play-by-play duties while Colin Fraser supplies color commentary.
TSN has also announced two changes to its broadcast schedule for the Parts Canada Superbike Championship.
The third show, featuring the second half of the Race City Motorsport Park doubleheader in Calgary, will be broadcast a day earlier than originally scheduled. It will now air Saturday, July 27 at 11:00 am EDT.
The following program, with action from Autodrome St-Eustache near Montreal, is now slated for Sunday, Aug. 4 at 1:00 pm EDT. It was previously set to air on Aug. 3.
TSN will also repeat each of the eight programs during the course of the summer. Viewers should check local listings for additional dates and times of the shows.
TSN's 2002 motorcycle road racing coverage will also include the fourth round of the Diablo Paintball Can-Am 125GP Challenge from Atlantic Motorsport Park in Shubenacadie, NS. That race will air in the fall, after the conclusion of the Parts Canada Superbike Championship shows.
Action from the Parts Canada Superbike Championship will also air this summer in Quebec on Reseau des Sports (RDS) in half-hour format. An extended one-hour program will be shown across Canada in the fall on the Outdoor Life Network. <pre> Event TSN Premier Date Time (EDT) Shannonville (Pro Track) Sunday, June 23 6:00 pm Calgary Race 1 Saturday, July 6 1:30 pm Calgary Race 2 Saturday, July 27 11:00 am St-Eustache Sunday, Aug. 4 1:00 pm Mosport I Sunday, Aug. 11 3:30 pm Mosport II Sunday, Aug. 24 11:30 am Atlantic Motorsport Park Saturday, Sept. 14 12:00 pm Shannonville (Long Track) Sunday, Oct. 13 6:00 pm
