MotoAmerica has announced its provisional 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship schedule with seven of the nine anticipated events secured.
The series will open again at the immaculate Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas, where MotoAmerica will race in conjunction with the second round of the MotoGP World Championship – the Red Bull Grand Prix of The Americas. Six additional rounds have been secured to follow COTA and MotoAmerica is working to add two more events to the schedule to make it a nine-round series, which would mirror the number of events from 2015.
“We’ve been working hard to nail down a schedule as soon as possible because we know how important it is to the teams, sponsors and fans,” said MotoAmerica partner Chuck Aksland. “Right now we have seven events ready to go. The seven rounds we have secured are racetracks we visited this year. We were pleased with our events at those facilities and the tracks are happy to have us return in 2016. The schedule will continue to grow in the coming weeks.”
In addition to the Superbike/Superstock 1000, Supersport and Bazzaz Superstock 600 class, the KTM RC Cup Series will also return to the MotoAmerica Series for 2016. A schedule for that series will be available at a later date.
