Wednesday, 19 January 2022

The riders set to compete in the 2022 Honda British Talent Cup can now be announced, with a host of returning competitors joined by some rookies looking to make their mark. The majority hail from across the UK, with a number of Dutch and American riders also lining up on the grid this season.

There are 36 riders on the Entry List, with all allowed to take part in Free Practice and Qualifying. The British Championship governing body, the Motorcycle Circuit Racing Control Board (MCRCB) has imposed a limit of 32 riders who can take part in each BTC race. The age limit has also been raised to 13 for new competitors in 2022, and will be 14 for 2023.

The fastest 32 riders in qualifying will line up for Race 1. If a rider is declared unfit or withdraws for any other reason after the first race of the weekend and is not able to take part in Race 2, the fastest rider(s) of the four who didn’t make the cut will be able to take the place if their qualifying time is deemed satisfactory.

The Honda British Talent Cup will feature at eight Bennetts British Superbike Championship events with the highlight of the season being a support race at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone in August.

CVMA: Lewin Wins Four Races, Sets New Class Lap Record

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2022-01-19 23:10

CVMA Racing Round 4 2021/2022 Winter Series  
 

Round four of the 2021-2022 CVMA racing series [held January 15-16 at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, in Desert Center, California] was very well attended. Racers from all over the country showed up in record numbers to grid up against some of the fastest riders in the U.S. CVMA is becoming known for very competitive racing. Some of the top MotoAmerica teams are racing in the series as a means to test for their upcoming season. Chad Lewin won all of the middleweight races he started including the Supersport Shootout — racking up four wins and a new lap record on the weekend.

On Friday the New Racer school graduated 6 new racers into the sport and the club continues to grow each and every round.

In Saturday morning qualifying, David “Aussie Dave” Anthony was the fastest of all on an open class bike turning a 1:45.393 lap time. Chad Lewin was the fastest middleweight rider with a 1:47.374 lap. Justin Bordonaro turned a 1:52.785 making him the fastest lightweight class rider and Owen Williams was fastest in the ultra lightweight bikes with a 1:54.321 lap.

The best racing on Saturday happened late in the day with a very close battle in the Amateur Supersport Open class. At the start, Declan Van Rosmalen got the holeshot riding his 600cc motorcycle against the 1000cc bikes. Van Rosmalen was quickly passed by Troy Simmons who took over the lead after just a few corners. Igore Sokolve started from pole but had a poor start. Sokolve was able to work his way into second and close the gap to Simmons by the end of the first lap. A few laps later, Sokolve was able to pass Simmons at the end of the front straight only to have Simmons retake the lead a few corners later with a very brave pass into Turn 12. The two riders exchanged the lead again and Sokolve was leading at the start of the last lap with Simmons very close behind. Simmons was able to make an inside pass on the brakes in the penultimate corner to take the lead and then held off Sokolve to the line for a very close victory. Van Rosmalen rounded out the podium, finishing third.

Early Sunday morning, Michael Gilbert and Andy DiBrino squared off in the fourth race of the day, Supersport Open. Gilbert got the holeshot with DiBrino close behind. Gilbert lead almost the entire race with DiBrino running second. On the final lap, DiBrino was able to pass Gilbert on the brakes into Turn 10 and then hold him off until the finish for the win and a new lap record of 1:44.376. Gilbert finished second and Anthony ended up third.

The Supersport Shootout saw Lewin dominate the race from the start to the finish and set a new lap record in the process. Sam Lochoff got a great start from the second row into second place but unfortunately fell off in Turn Four later in the race. Liam Grant was able to work his way into third place after a few laps and was handed second position when Lochoff crashed out. One the final lap, Rennie Scaysbrook was able to pass Alejandro Thermiotis just before the finish line to take third place. The final race results were Lewin for the win, Grant second and Scaysbrook third.

In the Ultralightweight Shootout, Aden Thao lead the race from the start until the final lap. On the final lap Williams, who ran second the entire race right behind Thao, was able to pass Thao into Turn Three. However, Thao was able to draft past Williams just before the finish line to take the win. Also on the last lap, Travis Horn was able to pass Jasmine Nichols to take the final podium position after a race-long battle for that spot.

Anthony started the Open Shootout from pole and led the pack into Turn 16. Gilbert slotted into second with DiBrino third at the start of the race. Gilbert was able to pass Anthony at end of lap five to take the lead. Gilbert, Anthony and DiBrino ran nose-to-tail for the next few laps until DiBrino was able to pass Anthony on lap nine to take second position. The final lap was close but none of the riders were able to improve their positions. The final result was Gilbert for the win, DiBrino second and Anthony third.

CVMA offers two full days of racing every race weekend and also includes Saturday qualifying for grid positions in all classes, amateur and expert, as well as a wide variety of classes to choose from.

Additionally, CVMA offers free reciprocity as a means of encouraging racers from other clubs to come out and compete. Log on to www.cvmaracing.com for more information.

MotoAmerica: Kyle Wyman Will Not Race A Superbike In 2022

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2022-01-19 21:47

Reigning MotoAmerica King of the Baggers Champion Kyle Wyman to Put Full Focus on H-D Screamin’ Eagle Factory Bagger team in 2022

KWR to Temporarily Withdraw from MotoAmerica Superbike Competition

MACEDON, N.Y. (Jan. 19) — The Kyle Wyman Racing (KWR) team has announced that rider Kyle Wyman will focus his full attention on defending the crown in the King of the Baggers series aboard the Factory Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle Road Glide in 2022. KWR will not continue in the MotoAmerica Superbike championship during the 2022 season.

Wyman pulled double-duty in 2021, riding both the Mission King of the Baggers series as well as the MotoAmerica Superbike series on his Panera Bread sponsored Ducati Panigale V4 R. After a successful championship-winning campaign with Harley-Davidson in 2021, Wyman looks forward to full focus on the King of the Baggers entry for the 2022 season.

“I’ve decided as we approach the start of the season, that I will focus my full attention on the Mission King of the Baggers series with the Harley-Davidson Motor Company,” Wyman said. “While we were working hard to evolve the KWR Superbike program with a new manufacturer for 2022, and exploring many other options within the paddock, ultimately I have committed to Harley-Davidson, as they have done for me. They have been an amazing company to work with and I want to give them my focus in 2022.”

KWR was formed in 2012 as a Harley-Davidson XR1200 series racing team and fielded 35 riders over three seasons in the class. KWR also competed in Daytona Sportbike, Superstock 600, Supersport, Superstock 1000, as well as six full seasons and 101 race starts in Superbike competition.

“A team that was born out of necessity is now coming to a close, or at least a hiatus, for the 2022 season,” Wyman said. “From the day we first hit the road for Daytona in 2012 it has been a dream of mine to build a race team capable of competing at the highest levels of motorcycle road racing in North America. With the help from countless crew members, riders and sponsors, we’ve accomplished so many things in the past decade that I am very proud of.”

Wyman’s best finish of 2nd place in MotoAmerica Superbike series in 2017 is accompanied by two more podium appearances in 2020 with the Ducati Panigale V4 R platform. While Wyman will enjoy the opportunity as a full-time factory rider for the Harley-Davidson Motor Company in 2022, he says that the Superbike journey is not yet over, and that he is open to new opportunities and a return to the class in 2023.

“We competed in three seasons of Superbike with the Yamaha platform, and three seasons with the Ducati,” Wyman added. “We achieved podium results on both bikes and while we have had some success in the class, I still have a lot of things I want to accomplish in Superbike racing.”

Wyman is a former professional flat track racer on the Harley-Davidson XR750 platform and started the KWR team in 2012 utilizing Harley-Davidson XR1200 equipment. It is with the iconic U.S. manufacturer that Wyman’s journey begun and it is a full-circle moment to have a full time commitment to H-D in 2022 as their reigning KotB national champion.

“This step back from Superbike team ownership is a refreshing change for what has been a great challenge each year. I look forward to what is a much needed sabbatical to understand how I want to approach Superbike again in the future. Right now, I am squarely focused on the goal of defending our King of the Baggers Championship, which has been expanded to seven races this year.”

The 2019 Daytona 200 Champion and multi-time XR1200 Daytona winner will kick off round one of this year’s King of the Baggers Championship at Daytona International Speedway, March 10-12, 2022.

R.I.P. Philanthropist, Mentor, Former Racer Ronnie Lunsford

RoadRacing World - Wed, 2022-01-19 21:29

Philanthropist, mentor, former racer Ronnie Lunsford died Monday, January 17 as the result of injuries he suffered in a traffic accident while riding his motorcycle near his home in the Houston, Texas area.

According to Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Sergeant Erik Burse, Lunsford was riding a Honda CBR1000RR and traveling northbound on FM149, a road with a 60 mph speed limit that was dry at the time, when he struck a Honda CRV SUV that had stopped behind a Saab 93T sedan that was stopped and attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Stone Creek Lane.

Lunsford was transported to Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, where he succumb to his injuries. No one else was injured in the crash and no citations were issued, but the crash investigation is still open, according to Sgt. Burse.

Lunsford was 63, according to the DPS report. He is survived by wife Janet, twin daughters Leigh and Lauren, and two grandchildren.

Lunsford was a well-known and well-regarded lifelong member of the motorcycle riding and racing community in Texas.

He spent many years road racing with CRRC, CMRA and WERA as well as racing motocross and flat track. He won 28 CMRA sprint Championships and 18 CMRA Endurance Championships, including six overall Championships. He was inducted into the CMRA Hall of Fame in 2004.

During his years racing in Texas, Lunsford mentored future two-time Superbike World Champion Colin Edwards II at the start of his road racing career. They remained friends ever since.

Lunsford owned and operated the Northwest Honda Ducati dealership after buying it from his father Bob in 1986. Lunsford recently sold the dealership so he could retire.

While at the helm of Northwest Honda Ducati, Lunsford organized the Honda-sponsored Houston Ride For Kids – a fundraiser for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF).

Lunsford organized the first Houston Ride For Kids in 1993, and since then the events have raised millions of dollars to support children and their families during the fights with cancer. The 2021 Houston Ride For Kids alone raised over $1.1 million.

“We judge our score sheet by how much money we’ve raised, but when all of the kids come out and have a good time you can’t put a price on that,” Lunsford said in an interview for Shops: Northwest Honda Ducati, Roadracing World, October 2016. “Sometimes it’s a day these kids are going through chemo and radiation. They’re sick and they don’t feel good, but they come out anyway because they want to come out and have fun. They just want to be kids and have fun, and our motorcycle event lets them to do that. It lets them take a break from reality for a day. They’ve given me more than I’ve ever given them.”

A public celebration of Lunsford’s life has been scheduled at 11:00 a.m. local time Sunday, January 30 at Rio Bravo Motocross Park located at 11610 N Lake Houston Pkwy, Houston, TX 77044.
