At the 2013 CMDRA season kicked off at N'Lakapxm Eagle Motorplex near Ashcroft, BC, thirteen-time Champion Ethan Barkley came into the event with nothing more than a bike that idled. The last four months had been spent designing and building one of the most state-of-the-art Pro Street turbo systems on the market. Taking on such a task was a massive undertaking and it came down to the final hours before the GSX-R1000 dubbed 'Eleanor' was up and running. But she was far from race ready.

Calgary's Ethan Barkley made history at the CMDRA's most recent round at Mission Raceway Park, becoming the quickest Canadian Pro Street racer in history after a 7.505-second quarter-mile lap at over 187 mph.
The cool, dense sea level air at Mission combined with a smooth sticky racing surface allowed Barkley to finally begin turning up the boost on his turbocharged Suzuki GSX-R1000. Out of the box in early testing Saturday the bike ran a nice clean 8.0 at a mere 170 mph with a mild "off the trailer" tune. After a soft 7.7@185 in the first qualifying session, Barkley made some slight chassis adjustments and the engine tune was left the same. The Gixxer, dubbed 'Eleanor' shot off the line with the front tire hovering above the track. The result was a historic 7.505 @ 187. Barkley couldn't go quicker in the final qualifying session.
