Yamaha 50th Anniversary R1 Auction
Motorcycle enthusiasts around the world will have a special opportunity to bid on a one-of-a-kind YZF-R1 as ridden by "King" Kenny Roberts around the famed Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca circuit, Yamaha Motor Corp. USA, announced Tuesday.
Josh Hayes was a late addition to the No. 13 Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R6 team for this weekend’s AMA Pro SunTrust Moto-GT 8 Hours At Daytona but that didn’t stop the top AMA Pro American Superbike rider from winning the overall and GT1 class pole Friday for tomorrow’s eight-hour endurance race.Hayes, who will co-ride the No. 13 with Jeff Wood and regular team riders Dane Westby and Dustin Meador, turned a top qualifying lap time of 1:53.367 (112.731 mph) just minutes before a heavy rain shower forced an early end to the scheduled two hour session just past the one hour mark.
