MotoAmerica 2020

Looks like MotoAmerica is getting very serious about actually racing in 2020.

One of the better US circuits at Road America near Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. 4 miles, 6.5 kilometres is a long lap. Not suitable for racers with a short attention span. Fast & challenging, with a bit of up & down, as I like race tracks.

Serious distancing & other precautions in place. No spectators at this round, curious to see how things go.

Could be the start of something awesome. Two twelve lap races for the superbikes, 11 laps for supersport.

They are planning to run 10 rounds before the end of November.

Good luck to them

No spectators at this round. Commencing next Friday the 29th. After that, wait & see.

Seems like they are adapting to the state requirements and expecting things to change as time goes by.

Or they are making it up as they go.

From what I've seen there's a lot more variation in state requirements in the US than there is in AU

Watched a few of the rounds this year, pretty underwhelmed by the racing but some beautiful tracks with some awesome elevation changes.
Supersport has some decent racing with the boy Brandon Paasch who raced Moto 3 in the UK last year usually near the front with two other guys.

Round 1 this weekend at Road Atlanta.
The circuit looks interesting, fast in places. Some woods around the track to.

Seems I should be able to watch some races via MotoAmerica live + that is; https://www.motoamericaliveplus.com/

If my calculations are correct I could watch a Superbike race at about 5:am Monday morning. After Jerez and before work.

Maybe I will check the results on Road racing world. Later.

Brainerd Minnesota this weekend.

As far as I know MotoAmerica hasn't raced there recently. Should be a new circuit for many of the racers.

Will Loris Baz get his first race win? We'll see.

Day one wrap of most of the classes.

Loris Baz doing ok. Jake Gagne seems to be doing the business this year. Jake G has been around a while, raced in Moto2, did Red Bull Rookies for two full seasons, won it in 2010.
Did a full season in WSBK plus some wildcards.

BSB is racing this weekend. Not much else on.

Oh and the Olympics.
