Miller Motorsports Park FIM eRoadRacing World Cup Round Canceled
The International Motorcycling Federation has canceled the Miller Motorsports Park round of the eRoadRacing World Cup, reducing the North American leg of the series to just two events.
The Aug. 31-Sept. 1 round at the Tooele, Utah, circuit was supposed to be the third and final portion of the North American series, following last month’s Laguna Seca round and the Aug. 18 round at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
No reason for the cancelation was provided, though the obvious theory is the lack of a major FIM-sanctioned international championship event to headline the Miller round.
Both the Laguna Seca and Indianpolis rounds of the eRoadRacing World Cup are support races for MotoGP events. Over in Europe, the forthcoming two rounds at Germany’s Oschersleben circuit and France’s Le Mans are opening acts to the main event Endurance World Championship races. Only the July 14 race at Spain’s Valencia circuit was held without another FIM event.
