Thumbs up 2016 MotoAmerica / Motul FIM World SuperBike Championship - Laguna Seca

2016 MotoAmerica / Motul FIM World SuperBike Championship - Laguna Seca

July 8th - 10th

Start booking your Hotel or Motel rooms SOON!
Salinas, Ca is just 12 miles from the track.

A 3 day General Admission with Paddock Pass is $95.
Paved Motorcycle Parking (RED) is $30 for the 3 days.
You'll have to add that California Sales Tax

BMWWill, Kevin, Todd and I have reservations at the Salinas Super 8 motel. We're riding down EARLY on Thursday.

This will likely be the last time we'll be able to see Josh Hayes and Cameron Beaulier racing together on the west coast LIVE.

Should be a great rider down and a memorable weekend!

We'll have to 'slab it' Thursday down Interstate 5 to Los Banos and spend the night. On Friday morning we'll take that wonderful ride on HWY 152 to 156 and on to Laguna Seca.

That bites. How does the person who finished 5th in the championship (right behind the only two factory teams) end up without sponsorship? Maybe it's because we still can't get anyone to care about American road racing.

We still only have maybe 9 riders in Superbike (based on MotoAmerica's website). Nine?! America's top motorcycle road race class and we can only manage to get nine riders? Chances are that this year will be the Josh and Cam show all over again. This is why there are no competitive Americans in any of the international series.

KEVIN,
I am 100% in agreement!

On our ride down to Monterey:
Wish we could ride via Lassen but we'd have to add an additional day.

Heh...I wish my bike could make it 146 miles between fuel stops...

This should be a fun trip. I was there couple of years back for the WSBK. It's a great time.
