AMA Pro Racing officials announced today that the Hyatt Regency New Orleans will be the host venue for the GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing 2012 season awards celebration. Following the October 5-7 season finale at NOLA Motorsports Park, the Triumph Big Kahuna New Orleans presented by Dunlop Tire and LeoVince, the Series will gather together at the beautiful hotel in downtown New Orleans on Monday evening, October 8, 2012.
The semi-formal gathering will commemorate the champion riders and top performers in AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike, AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike, AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport and the AMA Pro Vance & Hines XR1200 Series. In addition to rider awards, top entrants, manufacturers and mechanics will also be lauded and all AMA Pro Racing riders, teams, industry members and officials are invited to attend.
“The city of New Orleans has greeted us with open arms and we are delighted to be concluding our season and celebrating our champions in such a beautiful city,” said AMA Pro Racing Chief Officer of Business Development David Atlas. “The Hyatt Regency gives us a first-class host hotel and pairing the banquet up with our final race event at NOLA Motorsports Park makes economic sense for our competitors. We look forward to celebrating another amazing season with everyone in the GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing community.”
Anchoring the vibrant New Orleans Sports and Entertainment District with a dramatic design that complements the uniqueness of the city, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans is located adjacent to the Mercedes Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena, blocks from the French Quarter, Morial Convention Center and Mississippi River Front.
