The end of the race season gives us an opportunity to look back over the exploits of CMR's sponsored racers. Mick Vaclavik of Thornbury Ontario has had a great season, after not racing competitively in the 2012 year. It's been good to see Mick in top form on his new CMR Drixton-II chassis, and using a more powerful engine. Mick has had many wins during the VRRA's four-race season and ended up the Champion in the VRRA's (Vintage Road Race Association) Period 2 Heavy Class.

Mick entered a number of other classes on this same bike within the VRRA Regulations, racing against more modern and more powerful machinery.  He earned a second place in the Period 3 Middle Class Championship and was a third-place finisher in the Period 3 Heavy Class Championship. All this, and Mick only started racing vintage motorcycles about five years ago!

Everbody's favourite track in the VRRA series is the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly Mosport Raceway);  it's also Mick's favourite. At CTMP this year, Mick won for the first time, knocking eight seconds off his previous best time there.

Mick Vaclavik is certainly a man to watch for in 2014! What will he do on CMR machinery?
