The first round of the MotoAmerica series is set to kick off in just over a month, as a support series to MotoGP at the Circuit of the Americas, and the series has now released a schedule for the weekend. The Supersport and combined Superbike/Superstock 1000 classes will be there, with the latter two classes racing twice over the course of the weekend.
Things get rolling for MotoAmerica a day earlier than MotoGP on Thursday, April 9 with the classes set to take part in a 45-minute practice session each (1 to 1:45 p.m. for Superbike/Superstock 1000, 2 to 2:45 p.m. for Supersport) on the opening day of festivities at COTA.
On Friday the racers of MotoAmerica will take to the track two more times with Superbike/Superstock qualifying set to take place from 11:55 a.m. to 12:25 p.m., followed later in the day by a 40-minute qualifying session for Supersport from 4:05 to 4:45 p.m.
Saturday’s MotoAmerica action will start at 7:50 a.m. with a 20 minute Supersport warm-up session with a Superbike/Superstock warm-up session following a few hours later at 11:55 a.m.
At 4:15 on Saturday afternoon the MotoAmerica Series kicks off with its first race of the new era with the Supersport riders doing battle for the first time in their 12-lap final on the 3.4-mile Circuit of the Americas. The Supersport race will be followed on Saturday by the opening round of the MotoAmerica Superbike/Superstock 1000 Series with defending four-time AMA Superbike Champion Josh Hayes beginning his title defense in the first of the two 15-lap Superbike races scheduled for 5 p.m.
On Sunday, the Superbike/Superstock 1000 racers get a warm-up session at 7:50 a.m. with the second of the combined Superbike/Superstock 1000 doubleheader closing out the weekend of action at COTA later that afternoon with a 3:30 p.m. race start.
