Honda exits AMA Superbike racing!
During the 2009 AMA/DMG Road Racing series, American Honda Motor Company, Inc. contracted team personnel, including team Honda rider Neil Hodgson, to the Corona Extra Honda race team.
Corona Extra Honda race team participated in this series with our award-winning 2009 CRB1000RR in the AMA Superbike class, unfortunately participation in this series did not meet our racing goals and objectives.
Regrettably the current AMA/DMG racing environment does not align with our company goals. Effective today 9/18/09, AHM will not be renewing contracts with Corona Extra Racing and will be terminating the on-site Road Race operations by 9/30/09. All assets will be put into storage for future consideration. Team staff was informed of these changes today at 1:00PM PDT.
