The Supertrax/ Byers Motorsports/ Polaris team returned to Quebec for their second time this season for the Grand Prix de Valcourt.
The Grand Prix is an action packed event with Snowcross, Snowmobile drag and oval racing, Freestyle as well as Moto and ATV races on the track. The event attracts racers and teams from all over the world to compete from the ISOC National, ECS, SCMX & CSRA Circuits.
The races kicked off on Friday with the Open Shootout combining Pro & Pro-Lite racers with 40 entries. Jamie, favoring an injured wrist from the Lindsay races, grabbed the holshot in Moto 1 and was running 3rd before getting pushed over the berm, coming back on and finishing 8th. In Moto 2, he ran a strong mid pack race finishing 6th.
The Pro Open class saw 27 entries this weekend, about half regular ISOC racers making it tough to qualify for the final. In Moto 1 on Saturday, Jamie had a tough time finding a rhythm in the 11-jump long woop section finishing 7th. Jamie had a stacked heat in moto 2 riding to a 8th place finish.
The temperature dropped for Sunday, which created lots of snow dust and low visibility on the track. Jamie started the day off with a 7th in Moto 1. In Moto 2 he got a good start setting him mid pack. Running 6th with 1-lap to go, Jamie was hit in the corner and forced over the berm dropping him back to 8th for the finish.
“It was a tough weekend to make the finals, let alone the LCQ, with all the top riders here from all over competing.” Jamie said after the weekend. “It was a fun track as always in Valcourt and enjoy racing here, we just didn’t get the results we wanted this weekend.”
This coming weekend the Byers Motorsports team is going to head south of the boarder to the New York ISOC National competing in the Pro-Lite class.
