Big Weekend of Racing to kickstart June
This weekend presents a feast of motorcycle racing for followers of two wheel action.
Mugello Italy will host the 6th Round of the MotoGP championship, with Valentino Rossi looking to make it a record breaking 7 wins in a row at his "home" track. Honda will be trialing a pnuematic valved engine at this round, with veteran racer Tadayuki Okada entered as a wild card. Aussie Casey Stoner’s book of records at Mugello is a thin one, he will be looking to change that. Pedrosa, Lorenzo and even a resurgent Colin Edwards could factor in the results.
Over the Atlantic, the World Superbike Championship breaks new ground in the USA with the frst ever running at the Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City, Utah.
As usual, Aussie race fans will be expecting Troy Bayliss for a double win. Combined with the World Supers, the AMA Superbike series will run alongside this weekend, presumably another Spies v Mladin affair in a 2 race format.
Back in Australia, Winton will host the 3rd round of the Australian Superbike Championship. With only 11 points seperating the top 5 runners in the championship, this weekends results are likely to see that order change. And over in Perth, the sandy Wanneroo Motocross track will host the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals, as that series reaches its halfway point.
Results will be posted as they become available.
