In the first two championship rounds at Shannonville Motorsport Park, nobody could touch Tim - he won both his heats and his finals. He set new track records in both rounds. But at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (formerly Mosport Raceway) Tim's newly rebuilt engine gave problems and he didn't place. To add insult to injury, at the final round at St. Eustache, Quebec, during practice a rider fell in front of Tim, he ran over the fallen bike and crashed. Tim suffered a broken leg and badly strained neck, and spent some time in hospital. He is recovering well and at the time of this post, he is still sporting a leg in plaster and a whiplash collar.
