Hooters Suzuki | Wera National Opener

Race Report

Adding to the hundreds of victories and many championships garnered at the highest levels of motorcycle dragracing, Brock’s Performance scored three wins in its first national-level roadrace event.

Armed with a Brock’s Performance CT Dual titanium exhaust system and BST carbon-fiber wheels, Team Hooters’ Tim Hunt rode to victory in the Formula 1, Senior Superbike Heavyweight and WERA/A Superbike Expert classes at the opening round of the 2010 WERA National Challenge series, held at Roebling Road Raceway in Savannah, Georgia. He was also the runner up in Open/A Superstock.

Hunt, who holds the unofficial track record and came into the races as a favorite, said: "These were my first National wins. Getting three of them in one day was a special bonus. During the off-season, I lost 25 lbs. and built a whole new level of fitness. And so did our bike! The ultra-light BST carbon-fiber wheels and Brock’s Performance exhaust made a huge impact on the team’s results.

For his trio of motorcycle racing wins, the Lavergne, Tennessee racer pocketed $450 of the $2100 available in BST contingency payout from Brock’s Performance over the entire WERA race weekend.

Brock’s Performance president Brock Davidson, who won the 2000 AMA/Dragbike Superbike National Championship as a Suzuki-sponsored dragracer, was ecstatic with Team Hooters’ success.

Brock Davidson Speaks…

"We’ve experienced many wins, but scoring three in this venue with an off-the-shelf exhaust system and wheels is beyond words. In dragracing, the parts really matter. In roadracing the rider is key. Knowing that we supplied Tim the parts to do his job is fantastic. We knew that the BST wheels and the pipes we use at the dragstrip work well on the street; now we’ve seen their effectiveness in roadracing."

"We felt confident coming into the season with a strong crew, fast riders and proven bike," said Hooters team owner Steve DeCamp. "With a few tweaks to our Suzuki GSX-R1000’s suspension to compensate for the lightweight wheels, the bike handled amazingly and was an absolute rocketship. We’re looking forward to having Talladega specialists Tim Hunt and Opie Caylor in the saddle for the next race."

Expanding upon 25 years of sportbike dragracing innovation and success on the quarter-mile, Brock’s Performance is proud to be involved with this winning team.
