eni FIM Superbike World Championship Returns to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca
The eni FIM Superbike World Championship returns to the famed Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on California’s scenic Central Coast for a third consecutive year July 17-19, 2015, and its only U.S. appearance.
“We continue to be pleased with the growth of the fan base for the Series,” says Gill Campbell, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca CEO/general manager. “With the continuation of GEICO as title sponsor, it seems clear that the U.S. motorcycle industry also sees this as an important event in which to reach out to their enthusiasts.”
Nearly 50,000 fans saw the exciting action over three days as the Superbike World Championship continues to gain greater recognition in the U.S. It’s no surprise being that California is home to Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, Ducati and Suzuki. Visitors ride to Monterey, with twenty four percent of tickets buyers coming from Southern California to enjoy the sights and sounds of world class motorcycle racing. Additionally, the open paddock format brings fans together with their favorite riders to take pictures and ask for autographs and an open press conference area allows for everyone to listen in and take part in the show.
World Superbike is an important production-based bikes series and holds races across the globe, fielding a grid of nearly 30 riders of a dozen different nationalities on eight competitive manufacturer brands. Each of the fourteen rounds has a two race format and the results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for riders and one for manufacturers.
