SBK Official Story: The 2008 HANNspree FIM Superbike World Championship enters into a new era this weekend as the series returns to the United States of America for the first time in four years. The new venue for round 6 of the series, the StriVectin-SD USA Round presented by HANNspree, is the Miller Motorsports Park, situated 35 minutes drive from downtown Salt Lake City in Tooele, Utah.
Despite only coming away from the last round at Monza with a third place and a DNF, Troy Bayliss was able to increase his championship lead by 8 points to 78, a haul of points equivalent to over three race wins. With the other challengers still unable to offer a consistent challenge, the 39-year-old Ducati Xerox rider, who has won five races already this season on his 1200cc Ducati 1098 F08 machine, is heading towards a third title in what will be his final year of Superbike racing.
If you are attending please send me your article and the best will get published. It doesn't need to be a work of literary genius - just write it your way. It will be interesting to read how everything works out on the updated track especially as the event is being held in conjunction with the American Superbikes racing.
