While all European two-wheeler fans are wondering when they can start enjoying a race from the stands of a racetrack again, MotoAmerica in the United States is certainly jumping the gun.
The news of the day is that the US national championship, after being the first national championship to restart, will also be the first to welcome spectators during the second round of the season, which will take place on the weekend of June 26th-28th at Elkhart Lane, the same track that hosted the first round of the year.
A surprising decision, given the merciless numbers linked to Covid in America, but that certainly emphasizes the courage of the championship's organizer. “It'll be a pleasure to return to Road America and race in front of our fans," MotoAmerica's President, Wayne Rainey, stated. "This will make the second race in Wisconsin even better. The Covid pandemic has had an impact on everyone's life in some way or another, and we'll be happy to give our fans the chance to come out and see some races. We will, of course, do so using anti-Covid guidelines."
Thee legend of the 500 era also underlines the excellent results in terms of numbers relating to the first round of the season, with reigning champion, Cameron Beaubier, who dominated the Superbike.
“We have had high TV numbers with FOX Sports, Eurosport, MAVTV, NBC Sports, YouTube, and MotoAmerica Live+. The event went smoothly, thanks to the commitment of our internal staff, the Road America staff, our volunteers, and the riders and teams."
