MotoAmerica To Host Three WERA Motorcycle Roadracing Rounds

Just as MotoAmerica will run as the support class for MotoGP at Circuit of the Americas in Austin April 21-23, WERA will run as the support class for MotoAmerica at three rounds.

MotoAmerica announced Monday that the WERA 1000cc Superbike class will join MotoAmerica at Road Atlanta, Pittsburgh International Race Complex and Barber Motorsports Park.

WERA Motorcycle Roadracing will run one qualifying session, and then the race. The three AMA-sanctioned rounds will also feature a WERA points fund to be paid after the Barber round, MotoAmerica says.

“WERA is excited to be working with MotoAmerica to promote our sport on all levels,” said Evelyne Clarke, President of WERA Motorcycle Roadracing. “This not only shows that working together is good for the sport, it will also give our Expert Riders the ability to be part of a Pro Level event with MotoAmerica and see what the next level of the sport is all about. We will release more information on this WERA Triple Crown in the next weeks to our riders and encourage them to check out this opportunity.”

“The idea to include grassroots racing came from our involvement as a support race to MotoGP and World Superbike,” said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. “Support races bring a local emphasis to the races and help us achieve our goal of increasing the connection between grassroots and professional racing. In 2016, we piloted the program with the Utah Sport Bike Association (USBA) and based on that success we are excited to work with WERA and the AMA to offer more support races in 2017 and beyond.”

The Suzuki ECSTAR Championship at Road Atlanta will be the first of the three races, April 28-30, followed by the Championship of Pittsburgh, August 25-27, and wrapping up with the Honda Championship of Alabama, September 15-17.
