Marcel prefers the drag racers start strategy with two feet on the ground, in a superman like position.

After the 2009 Calgary National.  Clint Mcbain, Marcel Irnie, and Cody Matechuk.

 

Marcel showing students at GoLo Shannonville Ontario Trackday, the correct racing line.  Demonstrating that corning is done with body positioning, not handlebar input.

 

The more upright the bike, the larger the tire patch on the ground.  By leaning off farther then most, Marcel is able to corner faster, and get on the throttle sooner.

 

Marcel's recently purchased 2008 zx6r, being tested at Seattle raceway trackday.   Temperary Spray Can paint job.

Marcel Irnie demonstrating to others how far you can lean your upper body, while still sitting center seat.  With moving the upper body, cornering is achieved with minimal lean angle.

Marcel arrived at Shannonville Motorsports park one month early and camped for six weeks straight in 2009.   Marcel drove 10,000 miles across Canada, so he has no other choice but to stay out East to complete in several National races.

 

Marcel shows little expression, as he battles with Superbike racers in Seattle Washington.
