Two For Two Wheel Tuesday

First off, very excited to hear that Brett McCormick is going to be racing in the US (I would have preferred to see him in BSB but rides were sparse there this year) and he'll once again be riding for Pascal Picotte on Suzuki's.  We will get to see him at Daytona, where he'll race the 200 and Superbikes.  Check out his new lid for Daytona! The work was done by Andre Roy of 66GraphX.com

 

 

Really well done lid!!  Good luck to Brett!!

 

Now some of you may have seen this on other sites, if not, this is mega cool.  Here is the valve train of the new BMW S1000RR spinning at 14,000 RPMS!!

Canadian Kawasaki Outsourcing 2010 Racing Progam

COMPETITION SYSTEMS TO RUN KAWASAKI TEAM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TORONTO, Ont. (January 13) – Canadian Kawasaki Motors has secured the 
services of Toronto-based Competition Systems to handle Kawasaki’s assault 
in the 2010 Parts Canada Superbike Championship. The team will consist of 
one rider and focus exclusively on the Superbike feature class with 
Kawasaki’s potent Ninja ZX-10R.
The new entity will be called Competition Systems Kawasaki Race 
Team.
For the past several years, Canadian Kawasaki Motors has run its 
national road race program in-house. Last summer the squad claimed its 
fourth straight titles in the Parts Canada Superbike and Yoshimura Pro Sport 
Bike divisions.
Mike Crompton of Competition Systems has been the crew chief for 
the Kawasaki program through its run of success and will now take over as 
team owner of the new race program. Some of the existing crew will continue 
with the team and a rider and sponsors will be announced within a few days.
“Due to a number of circumstances we have decided to suspend 
activities with our factory program for 2010,” said Jeff Comello of Canadian 
Kawasaki Motors. “But despite this state of change we have tried to keep as 
much continuity as possible and Mike Crompton and Competition Systems are 
the perfect fit. We have been together now for four-plus years and have 
enjoyed a great deal of success.”
     Crompton has some 40 years of experience in the Canadian motorcycle 
industry, supplying engines and race equipment to some of the country’s 
leading competitors.
     “Canadian Kawasaki Motors is a great company and I’m looking forward 
to this,” Crompton said. “We already have a good team structure and 
equipment. We’ve spent a number of years building this program and all we 
have to do is just continue what we’ve started.”
     The agreement between Canadian Kawasaki Motors and Competition Systems 
is for one year and will be re-evaluated at the end of the 2010 racing 
season.
     “Kawasaki is committed to showcasing the Ninja brand in competition 
and we feel strongly that we need to be behind the Parts Canada Superbike 
Championship,” Comello said. “This is the perfect venue for us to display 
our products.”
     “We all have to dig deep and support the series,” Crompton added. “It 
is important to do what we can to have a successful 2010 and build on that 
for 2011 and beyond.”
     In addition to claiming the past four Parts Canada Superbike titles 
Canadian Kawasaki Motors enjoyed a string of nine straight national 
championships from 1991 to 1999, and also claimed the first two Canadian 
crowns in 1980 and ’81 with riders George Morin and Lang Hindle, 
respectively.
     The 2010 Parts Canada Superbike Championship opens May 28-30 at 
Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Que.

Honda Out Of US Motorcycle Roadracing

We aren't much for cutting and pasting press releases and calling it content, but this does pretty much sum it all up nicely.

HEAD: Honda Racing announcement

For immediate release:

Torrance, CA: During the 2009 AMA/DMG Road Racing series, American Honda
Motor Company, Inc. contracted team personnel, including team Honda rider

Corona Extra Honda race team participated in this series with our
award-winning 2009 CBR1000RR in the AMA Superbike class, unfortunately
participation in this series did not meet our racing goals and objectives.

company goals. Effective today 9/18/09, AHM will not be renewing contracts
with Corona Extra Racing and will be terminating the on-site Road Race
operations by 9/30/09.  All assets will be put into storage for future
