@cdnsuperbike (August 12, 2015)- • “It is with great disappointment that I am not fit to compete in this weekend’s inaugural Ninja 300 Race Series,” said Montreal-based international race star Dan Kruger in an email to Inside Motorcycles. “I was invited to participate in this event and was really looking forward to it. It has been years since I raced in Canada and I have never ridden anything smaller than a 600 cc in my life.
“With a full grid of identically prepared bikes, it is definitely going to be hugely successful for the series and exactly what the sport needs in Canada to start grooming younger racers or racers on lower budgets. I think Kawasaki and CSBK, along with Hindle and the other sponsors, are doing a great thing here for the sport.
“I can’t tell you how bummed out I am to miss racing in it, or even being there to support it. I will be there in spirit and will watch online. Good luck to everyone participating and have a safe weekend.”
