Investments Made to the Motocross Deschambault Site
Major investments were made in order to improve installations this year. A new and much bigger front desk was built in front of the previous one. This made it possible to add extra bathrooms and dressing rooms. Dorms, showers and a laundry room were also built in order to welcome young pilots who participated in the 4 week summer camp. Due to all of the investments and to excellent track maintenance, many schools decided to make Deschambault their home this season. Junior Red Riders by Honda as well as Cobra’s Elite School are two of them.
Once again this year, Motocross Deschambault will host a Straight Rhythm Race! There will be a 1200 foot straight line with many close-set jumps to create a fast and furious rhythm! Qualifying rounds and the final round will all be held on Friday August 3rd from 7 pm to 8:30 pm. Intermediate and pro racers are invited to sign up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 30th.
As in previous years, many important trophies will be awarded during this week of racing:
The Jean-Sébastien Roy Trophy will be awarded to the best amateur pilot, being the pilot who stands out the most during the event.
The Frédérick Laflamme Trophy will be awarded to the most outstanding Supermini driver.
