TORONTO, ON - Parts Canada Superbike Championship officials announced today a date change for the seventh round of the series at Circuit Mont-Tremblant. The event will take place Aug. 15-17 rather than Aug. 22-24, as originally planned.

The shift came due to a late change in the CART Champ Car schedule. That series recently moved its round at Montreal's Circuit Gilles Villeneuve to Aug. 22-24, setting up a conflict with the Parts Canada Superbike event. Mont-Tremblant is located about an hour's drive north of Montreal.

Since the two events will draw from the same pool of course workers, Parts Canada Superbike representatives elected to change the date of their event.

"It wasn't very practical to try and run two major motorsports events within about an hour of each other on the same weekend," said Colin Fraser of Parts Canada Superbike Championship series organizer Professional Motorsports Productions. "The staff at Mont-Tremblant have been very co-operative in helping us resolve this situation and we thank them for their understanding."

The Mont-Tremblant event, the first national Superbike round held at the classic venue, will now come one week after the Parts Canada Superbike series stop at Atlantic Motorsport Park in Shubenacadie, NS. The season will conclude two weeks following the Mont-Tremblant race at Shannonville Motorsport Park Aug. 29-31.
