This month we recap the MotoAmerica Season, after attending the 'Honda Superbike Showdown of California' at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, CA.

The 2016 MotoAmerica KTM RC Cup Championship Tightens up!
In its second year running, the MotoAmerica KTM RC Cup Championship never fails to deliver action packed racing. As the only spec class in the series, the talent and race-craft of four riders: Brandon Paasch, Anthony Mazziotto III, Ashton Yates and Jody Barry have all landed on the top box during the season. With only 1 Round and 2 Races remaining, the championship is still undecided. Additionally, the riders are battling for the opportunity to represent the United States at the KTM RC Cup World Finals! Motion Pro is proud to be a sponsor of the MotoAmerica KTM RC 390 Cup and all of its participants. The RC Cup provides an excellent platform for up-and-coming talent to bridge the gap between their club and professional racing career.




Tuned Racing?s Bryce Prince has been crowned #1!
The Riders Discount/Tuned Racing Team has put together a rock-solid effort for MotoAmerica in 2016. Riders Jason Aguilar and Dan McCormack have faced some adversity throughout the season, but Bryce Prince broke away from the pack early, determined for top honors. After wrapping up the 2016 MotoAmerica Superstock 600 Championship early at Utah Motorsports Campus, he stamped his name atop of the class with a big win at Laguna Seca,gapping 2nd place by 12 seconds. Tuned Racing equips all of their Yamaha R6?s with a Motion Pro Rev2 Throttle Assembly for optimum feel and performance, while taking advantage of Motion Pro?s vast line of specialty tools, both trackside and at the shop.

Team Rabit Transit / RSRacecraft
RSRacecraft partnered with Team Rabid Transit in 2016, returning to MotoAmerica competition fielding two Yamaha R1?s in the Superstock1000 class. With riders like Taylor Knapp, Brandon Cretu and Sheridan Morais on the team and a crew of seasoned mechanics equipped with Motion Pro Tools, it is no surprise to see the team making top results. Sheridan ?Shez? Morais coming off a concussion earlier in the season, came to Laguna Seca with confidence and put the #86 back on top of the time charts. The MotoAmerica Superstock1000 Races at Laguna Seca displayed some of the best racing of the year, with up to 7 riders in class battling for the top spot and paint being rubbed in every corner. Sheridan would claim 6th in Race 1 and after a couple changes came back to claim 3rd in Race 2 on his Rev2 Throttle Equipped Yamaha R1.
