This weekend WERA Motorcycle Roadracing took the show to Roebling Road Raceway, in Bloomingdale, GA – on the schedule for Saturday was the Pirelli
/WERA Sportsman Series and then Sunday was Round #1 of the WERA/Michelin National Challenge Series. All the results can be found on the site but we would like to take a minute to thank all the riders who came out and put on such a great show – Mother Nature for her cooperation and the WERA Officials who worked hard to make the event run smoothly, our sponsors Pirelli and Michelin as well as TOBC who provided the WERA Staff with new shirts and they look fabulous!
Stand-out races on Sunday had to be the Open Superstock Expert Race and the WERA Superbike Race – both had the top 5 in hot contention for the top of the box – Sean Dwyer on his Suz 1000 managed to pull off both wins over Tim Bemisderfer on his Suz 1000 in the WERA Superbike Race by 0.002 seconds! Fast lap went to Luie Zendejas on his Suz 1000 with a 1:11.749 In the WERA Superbike Race! Francis Dumas on his BMW1000 visiting from Canda rounded out the podium in the Open Superstock Class and Tim Hunt on his Suz 1000 was 3rd in WERA Superbike. Palmer Kling on his Hon 250 took the win in the inaugural Next Moto Champion Formula 3 Class. Jimmy Merck took multiple wins on his Suz 600 and James Stroud and James Dellinger also took multiple wins. Heather Szymonik took the win in Women’s Superstock and the 2012 Novices to keep an eye on will be Carson Zinger and Jamie Lee Murray in the 600 Classes; Christian Crosslin in the Lightweight Classes and Wesley Davis and Chris Holbert in the 750 and up classes.
