We doubt that we have to remind you that World Superbike is coming to the USA this week, but just in case…well…it is. Hosted by one of America’s best race tracks, WSBK riders will once again enjoy the undulating design of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
Those in attendance last year know that WSBK isn’t drawing the crowd that MotoGP once did for Laguna Seca, and the officials at SCRAMP want to change that.
Accordingly, the pre-event press conference this year will be held in San Francisco, and will double as an opportunity for fans to meet the top WSBK and MotoAmerica riders. This should be good news for just about every motorcycle racing superfan in The Bay Area.
Taking place from 11:30am to 1:00pm, at the Taverna Aventine (near the TransAmerica building), you have the perfect excuse to take a long lunch break and get your two-wheeled fix. For those with more flexible schedules, a happy hour is scheduled from 3pm to 6pm as well. Bonus points if you bring a friend.
World Superbike has long-been the more approachable racing series from the FIM, with the paddock atmosphere and rider approachability second-to-none. This year is no different, and the hope is that this press conference will help entice more motorcycle enthusiasts down to Laguna Seca for the races this weekend.
A&R will be in attendance this race weekend, so hopefully we’ll see you at the San Francisco event and at Laguna Seca. If you see us, say hi.
