iMOTO at REM September 6th!

A small but very enthusiastic group of riders met early in the morning at a beautifully clear day at Glen Helen Raceway to test their mettle against the always challenging and always rough REM track. The track was waiting for some knobby action; all that was needed to get exhaust pipes singing was some last-minute watering in a few dry spots. Once that was done, the track was primo, and remained so until the last 20 minute + one lap moto was complete!

Led by 50 Expert Craig Christian, #53, the pack enters the first turn in moto 1.

Vernon Herring ran his Kawi 125–the only small bore bike on hand!

Steve Johnston brought his style to the show. He finished second in the 55 Novice class!

Alan Kent was one of two 60+ riders on the track! He took the 60 expert class

Glen Helen’s own Mark Moore came out to play. He won the 50 Intermediate class!

Michael Sorensen was the most stylish of all the riders, with huge jumps and great body position! He won the 250 Novice class.

Marty Highland brought out his totally trick Beta to ride iMOTO. He took the 40 Novice class!

Craig Christian took the 50 Expert class over iMOTO’s Kurt Sofka, Jr., in two inspired rides!

Kurt Sofka Jr. had a great time, even showing some ‘goon’ moves on a few laps!

Kenny Sorensen demonstrated fine style over the straight tabletop on his way to the 50 Novice win.

Alfonso Ruiz won the 30 Novice class ; he was on the gas both motos!

Michael Mosca won the 55 Novice class with two inspired rides. . . he rode as great as he looked in his Alias gear and 6D helmet!

The next iMOTO race will held on the Glen Helen National Track on November 9th, the week after the Dubya World Vet Nationals! It will be round two of the iMOTO at “The Glen” 4-Race Mini-Series. Speaking of the Dubya World Vet Nationals (presented by MTA), we will have comments and information about  that event in upcoming blogs. Limited space is available in the World Vet program, and this year there will be a formal, expanded Vendor’s Row as well as evening activities on Friday and Saturday night for riders and spectators!
