Day­tona de­but

Classic Racer - - REGULAR PADDOCK GOSSIP -

The 2017 Amer­i­can Flat Track sea­son will launch at Day­tona on Thurs­day, March 16, with a 0.6-mile TT course within the Day­tona In­ter­na­tional Speed­way sta­dium. The Day­tona TT marks the dawn of a new era for Amer­ica’s most his­toric form of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing. The cham­pi­onship fea­tures the broad­est spec­trum of brands com­pet­ing in any form of mo­tor­cy­cle sport, and will serve as a bat­tle­ground for the great Amer­i­can war be­tween Har­leyDavid­son and In­dian Mo­tor­cy­cles in 2017. The fac­to­ries will be com­pet­ing head-to-head on the race­track for the first time since the 1950s. “Day­tona is the spir­i­tual home of mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing and we are de­lighted to be bring­ing the in­ten­sity of flat track rac­ing and the spec­ta­cle of a TT to com­plete the show,” said Michael Lock, CEO of AMA Pro Rac­ing. To show­case the high speed and in­ten­sity of the sport, the track de­sign will fea­ture a fast, sweep­ing left-hand turn along­side the front stretch of the famed cir­cuit. The track’s unique char­ac­ter­is­tics are per­fectly suited for the fast and fu­ri­ous na­ture of Amer­ica’s long­est run­ning mo­tor­cy­cle rac­ing cham­pi­onship.
