The HANNspree FIM Superbike World Championship will soon arrive at the Miller Motorsports Park in Utah, USA, for its annual American adventure. America is the halfway point of the 2010 World SBK Season.
This year the WSBK meeting will be unique as raceday takes place on Monday May 31st – the Memorial Day Holiday – rather than the usual Sunday, with first practice on Saturday 29th and Superpole qualifying on Sunday 30th.
As round seven of a 13 round season, Miller World SBK will be the halfway point for what has already been a thrilling period of competition in the Superbike class.
Once again the Supersport World Championship will run alongside the bigger bikes when action gets going on Saturday.
Miller Motorsports Park is a fascinating venue, built near Salt Lake City in the high desert of Utah.
It should be completely flat in layout, but in fact there were several points of elevation built into its original design, making it a real challenge for riders in all classes.
The 4.907km track skirts around the perimeter of the facility for the World Superbike meeting, but nonetheless it is one of the longer circuits on the 2010 calendar.
Miller is, like Kyalami last time out, a high altitude circuit (elevation 1341m) which means the awesome WSBK machines will be down on power in the thin air of the Utah plains.
This is the third visit of World Superbike to Miller in three years, and Miller is the most recent of three American venues to host World SBK racing.
