MotoAmerica Heats Up the Track
The eni FIM Superbike World Championship storms into Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for its third consecutive year July 17-19 for its only U.S. appearance. And with it comes the all-new MotoAmerica series, which is the new home of the AMA Superbike Series.
As the seventh stop in its inaugural season, MotoAmerica promises thrilling action for competitors and racing fans. As the support races for the Superbike World Championship weekend in Monterey, fans will be able to see Superbike/Superstock 1000, Supersport, Superstock 600 and KTM RC Cup
Three-time World Champion Wayne Rainey, who is president of MotoAmerica says, “The primary goal of MotoAmerica is to reinvigorate motorcycle racing in North America, reintroducing the most exhilarating motorsport in history to fans while grooming a new generation of American and international racers for the world stage.”
Nearly 50,000 fans saw the exciting action over three days as the Superbike World Championship gained greater recognition in the U.S. and in particular California, which is home to the largest number of sport bike owners. It’s no surprise being that California is home to Yamaha, Kawasaki, Honda, Ducati and Suzuki.
“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. The addition of MotoAmerica to the weekend, the racing only gets hotter.”
