Road Racing World announced the news that MotoAmerica and AXcess Racing, LLC want to spotlight youth road racing. Here’s the cool part, they have asked Blake (along with other kids) to be an ambassador, of sorts. He will go to several of the MotoAmerica races and do demonstrations in the paddock. Cones will be set up for spectators to gather around and watch these kids do their thing. The first race is in Austin, TX at Circuit of the Americas (COTA); MotoGP will be there racing the same weekend; so cool!
For those of you, like me, who are learning this motorcycle stuff. let me in a very UNOFFICIAL way define these series’ to you how I understand them:
MotoAmerica – the North American professional Road Racing Series; modified motorcycles
MotoGP – an international, professional, Road Racing Series; the bikes are specifically built for the series
Then, there is AXcess Racing, LLC who is a race team that sponsors youth riders. They have two teenage riders right now. It’s so neat that there is a team who is excited about the kids!
So, you see it is really cool that Blake gets to go to these races and represent youth racers!
Blake will be at these MotoAmerica races:
April 8-10 Circuit of the Americas Austin, TX
April 15-17 Road Atlanta Atlanta, GA
May 13-15 VIR Danville, VA
June 10-12 Barber Motorsports Birmingham, AL
Come out, watch the races, and see Blake and the other kids show off their talents!
