FANS ALLOWED BACK FOR MOTOAMERICA SUPERBIKES2020-06-19 04:48
The M4 ECSTAR Suzuki team will be back on track for the second round of the 2020 AMA/ MotoAmerica Superbike series at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, USA on June 26-28th where the doors will be open to spectators for the first time this year.
Following a closed-circuit series opener at Road America on May 31st due to lockdown with the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, the organisers have been given the go-ahead to open its doors, with appropriate Social Distancing rules in place.
Said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey: “We’re extremely happy with how the opening round of the 2020 MotoAmerica Series went at Road America. We had huge television numbers with FOX Sports, Eurosport, MAVTV, NBC Sports, YouTube and MotoAmerica Live+. The event went off without a hitch, thanks to the efforts of our in-house staff, the staff at Road America, our volunteers, the riders, and the teams.
“Now we get to go back to Road America and race in front of our fans, which will make this second race in Wisconsin even better. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted everyone’s lives in some way and we’re happy to give our fans the opportunity to get out and see some racing at a world-class facility like Road America. We will be doing so, of course, using COVID guidelines.”
The event will feature its five classes – HONOS Superbike, Supersport, Liqui Moly Junior Cup, Stock 1000 and Twins Cup – and also mark the debut of the MotoAmerica Mini Cup by Motul plus the exhibition Heritage Cup event. The round will also include Road America’s Vintage MotoFest and all the fan activities that go along with a MotoAmerica event.
