NJMP Painted Curb Upgrade

MotoAmerica: NJMP Receives FIM Approved Painted Curb UpgradePainted curbs are ubiquitous in the world of motorcycle racing. And when it’s FIM-approved paint, riders can feel just a bit better about checking their inside and outside lines.

New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, N.J., the site of not one but two MotoAmerica races this coming season, has been upgraded with to the FIM standard paint. We aren’t talking the usual hardware store special yellows and whites; this is a textured paint that allows tires to grip curbing and lines even in poor or wet conditions. For the 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Race Series held on April 28 –May 1 and September 9 – 11; this is a much appreciated safety addition.

“This is really step one in us being pro-active on improving the safety elements of our racetrack,” said Brad Scott, Chief Operating Officer of New Jersey Motorsports Park. “If there’s FIM-approved paint available for us to use on our curbing and white lines, why not make the effort to get it done? Rider safety is of utmost importance to us and this was just one more thing we could do to advance the safety of our facility.”

Safety improvements speak to one aspect of the track owners: they care. Not only do they want riders to be feel more comfortable and be surrounding by technologies that will allow them to perform to the best of their abilities but it also means they are willing to put in the time and money to make these improvements and for MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland, the message was heard loud and clear.

“We’re happy to see New Jersey Motorsports Park taking steps to make their racetrack safer,” said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. “While paint may seem like a pretty simple thing, the FIM-approved paint is a big difference maker in terms of safety. It adds grip to the white lines and the curbing and any time you can increase the grip level of your racetrack you’ve made a big step toward improving safety. We applaud NJMP for making this happen.”

The 2016 MotoAmerica Series opens the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas, April 8-10, in conjunction with round three of the MotoGP World Championship. For all your updates on the premier America road racing series, keep your browsers open to Ultimate MotorCycling.
