Fans and team-mates of veteran Canadian roadracing stalwart Michael Taylor are throwing a party in support of the Twice National Overall Champion, badly injured during practice for the final CSBK National events of the season at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park, ON, on Friday, August 19. Taylor has undergone two surgical procedures on his badly damaged leg following his turn two tumble, and is looking ahead to a repair for his injured shoulder, too.
Taylor is expected to be recovering for some time, with limited ability to work.
Long-time Taylor supporters and Canadian motosport personalities Pat Gonsalves and Pat Barnes are organizing an event at the Queen Victoria Pub at 2240 Midland Ave. in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough, on Tuesday, October 4, 2016, from 6 PM to 11 PM. The Queen Victoria Pub is located on the West side of Midland Ave, North of Progress, M1P 4R9.
A major silent auction will be part of the festivities honoring the lengthy and successful career of Taylor, who has competed for Triumph, Kawasaki, Honda, Yamaha, BMW, Ducati with a host of teams across the globe.
Other entertainment over the evening is said to include “the vocal stylings of Michael Taylor.” Besides his renovation career and history in motorcycle competition, Taylor is also a regular on the Toronto Choir circuit.
Tickets are just $ 15.00 each, and include a BBQ. There will be a cash bar.
Pat and Pat look forward to a great evening in support of Michael Taylor next week – please join them.

@WorldSBK • (October 4, 2015)- The second race at Magny-Cours was won by Jonathan Rea (Kawasaki Racing Team), the World Champion doing the double for the fifth time this year after a three-rider battle raged from the start. His podium tally of 22 puts him equal with Troy Bayliss who achieved the feat in 2002, and is the second highest number of podiums in a season in the all-time list.
At the flag at the end of 21-adrenalin-filled laps the remaining podium places were taken by Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team) and Tom Sykes (Kawasaki Racing Team) meaning the fight for the runner-up spot in the series will continue to the season finale under floodlights in Qatar in a fortnight.
