NEWS: Goodbye Autodrome St Eustache

Thursday, June 27, 2019


On Sunday, we said goodbye to Autodrome St Eustache. The track, in operation for decades, held its last ever National motorcycle race this past weekend, June 23rd. I rode the Royal Distributing BMW S1000RR to a 6th place finish in Pro Superbike after a good battle. I rode reasonably well, but my pace was off a little bit from where it needed to be to fight for the podium.

It’s a real shame that the track will close, a victim of the expanding suburban landscape. This venue is the place that I truly learned how to race, while competing in the Am lightweight and then Am 600 classes with the ASM organization during the mid nineties. I could fill pages of this newsletter with memories of learning the ropes, competing in endurance races, winning championships, crashing out of the lead, setting lap records, and all kinds of crazy track adventures. I crashed my FZR 400 so hard once, that my Dad and I never found the battery. It’s probably still buried in the outfield. Even though it wasn’t a great track as far as the layout and track surface, I’m going to miss the Autodrome. It’s sad to say goodbye. Read more…

It was a breakthrough of sorts for us. I was able to lay down some fast lap times, very comparable with the front runners, WITHOUT throwing the bike down the road. Read more…
