AMA Motorcycle Fans Invited to Two-Wheel Thunder in April
SONOMA, Calif. (March 1, 2007) - Race fans are invited to Infineon Raceway on Friday, April 6, for Two-Wheel Thunder, which will feature the fastest motorcycle road-racers in the country testing the raceway's twisting road course in advance of the upcoming Kawasaki AMA Superbike Showdown, presented by Supercuts.
The top manufacturers from the AMA Superbike Series are expected to attend, including Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki and Honda. Their riders will traverse the twists and turns, attempting to gather valuable information for their return trip, May 18-20, as Suzuki's Ben Spies looks to defend the titles he won in the Sonoma Valley in 2006. The day will also include a full-day of Supermoto racing behind the main grandstand benefiting a local resident with cancer.
Gates open at 9 a.m. and admission is free. Fans will be able to watch testing from the grandstand, as well as wander around the paddock, just steps away from their favorite riders. Other elements planned for the day include:
Supermoto benefit: Up to 50 riders will take part in a benefit for local resident Allen Yarrow of Fairfield, who has been diagnosed with cancer. Yarrow is the father of well-known rider Casey Yarrow and former District One Flatrack Champion. The Supermoto event will be held behind the main grandstand in the paddock on a temporary course. Fans are invited to watch the event and also purchase raffle tickets for a kart to be raffled off at the end of the day, with proceeds benefiting Allen Yarrow. Riding will begin at 9 a.m.
SBFreaks Street Freestyle: The May weekend will also feature Street Freestyle hosted by SBFreaks on the island in Turn 10. This will mark the second consecutive Street Freestyle event at Infineon Raceway as riders perform a variety of tricks on their 400- and- 500-pound street bikes competing for $10,000 in cash prizes. Riders will be on-hand on April 6 for demonstrations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Fan Forum: Select AMA riders will participate in a Fan Forum in the Wine Country Winner's Circle during the lunch break on April 6. It's your chance to ask questions of your favorite riders.
Wall of Fame Announcement: Infineon Raceway officials will make a formal announcement regarding which AMA rider will be inducted into the raceway's Wall of Fame for 2007. This will take place in the Wine Country Winner's Circle during the lunch break. The rider will be enshrined in May.
AMA Ticket Offers: Special ticket offers will be made available for the upcoming Kawasaki AMA Superbike Showdown in May.
