    "Irnie Racing Shifts Up for 2012!"

    Marcel Irnie has a new agenda for 2012. The Kelowna BC native welcomes a new teammate, a new motorcycle, a full-time Canadian crew chief and exciting new sponsors to assist the team with their challenging privateer program – The MOPAR Canadian Superbike Championship!

    Andrew Rogers of Gig Harbor WA joins Marcel as his teammate for 2012. Rogers, who has only raced for one full season, is already the fastest Novice racer in Washington.

    Jason Williams of Ottawa will be playing a pivotal role in the pits as crew chief. Williams’s mechanical background and race track experience will be an invaluable resource to the team’s race program.

    The team will be racing the entire Canadian Superbike Championship Series with Irnie piloting the potent AMSOIL 2012 BMW S1000RR in the Pro Superbike class and Rogers piloting his 2009 Yamaha R6 in the Amateur Sportbike class. The team has allocated 10 weeks for traveling to Eastern Canada to compete in the series, but also intends to race several events in Washington, Oregon, and hopefully California.

    Irnie will be consistently racing on competitive equipment this year with his new BENTLEY Motorrad BMW. In previous years, Irnie had been racing on underpowered 600cc machines and learned to make do with less. He achieved two victories in 2011 on borrowed equipment, so having competitive machinery for a complete campaign will be a welcome change.

    Irnie commented, "We are running a very serious privateer race program for 2012. I will be competing in the Pro Superbike class and Amateur Rookie Andrew Rogers competes to win the Amateur Sportbike class. The Pro Superbike class features the fastest bikes and the fastest factory riders in Canada, while the Amateur Sportbike class produces the fastest 600cc Amateur National racers. We will be traveling the Canadian National Series for ten weeks straight, racing and filming to promote the Irnie Racing brand and sponsors. We will also race seven WMRRA/OMRRA/AFM regional races before and after Canada. I will be producing the 2012 Canadian Superbike Tour HD Documentary. I have discussed this with series organizer Kevin Graham, and he is happy that I will be filming his series from the on-board GoPro perspective."
