Press Release: 

It’s All Glory for Cory in World Superbike Support GTU Race, which was dominated by Pirelli tires.

Tooele, Utah: Road racer Cory West won the inaugural Larry H. Miller Challenge GTU (LHMCGTU) race at Miller Motorsports Park. West took the win in this support race for the 2009 United States round of the World Superbike Championship, riding a Suzuki GSX-R600 fitted with a snazzy pair of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa DOT race tires, which performed with aplomb in the wet-to-drying-to-dry racing conditions.

Taking the inaugural second place in the inaugural LHMCGTU race was Taylor Knapp, also on a set of Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa DOT race tires. Knapp crossed the finish line on his way to the podium 4.613 seconds behind race-winner West, in the somewhat confusing track conditions.

British Supersport Round 4

British SBK: J W Racing Press Release British Supersport Round 4 Thruxton

J W Racing had a successful 4th round in the British Supersport championship with 20 year old James Westmoreland. A weekend baked with sunshine also brought out the very best of James and the JW Racing Triumph 675.

Free practice went as planned, with James running his new 675 which was built by JT Engine Developments for Donington Park last week. Time was spent getting a good race set up and feeling comfortable on used tyres. James finished Friday’s free practice in 16th but was extremely comfortable with this as we were not chasing lap times. Saturday mornings qualifying session saw Westy qualify 5th after an impressive run on race tyres with lap times under the lap record. In blistering temperatures the afternoon qualifying went perfect. It was always the intention to make the most out of the soft tyre and James produced a stunning lap to shatter the lap record by 1.25 seconds, and secure his first pole position.
