North American Supermoto (NASMOTO) formed In Partnership with AMA

Published June 2nd, 2005

Encinitas CA – NASMOTO, a new organization designed to greatly expand
the sport of Supermoto in North America, has launched the NASMOTO Grand
Prix for all levels of Supermoto riders, kicking off June 18-19, 2005
at the USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI. NASMOTO, formed in
partnership with AMA Sports, has received the official blessing of the
AMA and Supermoto Canada along with inscriptions from the FIM and NAMU.



“The NASMOTO Grand Prix will be a terrific grass-roots program to help
build riders for the AMA Pro Supermoto Championship,” noted AMA Sports
Senior Director Douglas Neubauer. “The AMA is excited about the
evolving opportunities for Supermoto in North America, and NASMOTO is a
great way to grow the sport at all levels, benefiting everyone from
promising beginners to the AMA Pro Racing Supermoto Series.”



The first event in Shawano, dubbed the NASMOTO Grand Prix of Green Bay,
will be followed by races in Cleveland, Toronto, Southern California,
the Northwest and Southeast regions, and at October’s Red Bull
Supermoto-A-Go-Go on the streets of Reno NV. NASMOTO will also produce
the 2005 AMA Supermoto Grand Championship for riders who qualify at
2005 NASMOTO Grand Prix events.



Inspired by recognized international competition standards, the premier
class for the Grand Prix will be the SM1 450 Open class format,
enabling the best of the best to pull out all the stops. Additionally,
to fulfill NASMOTO’s goal of creating “Supermoto pros of the future,”
the Grand Prix will feature a full range of classes, from the
youngsters of 85cc Mini-Moto to the Sport Moto class that encourages
the use of stock equipment and DOT tires.



“We are excited about this year’s slate of events,” said Ted Baker, VP
of NASMOTO and President of Supermoto Canada, “and we are actively
seeking out promoters and participants locally and regionally
throughout North America so they can be included in the AMA-sanctioned
NASMOTO program.”



Even the legendary creator of Supermoto, Gavin Trippe, gives NASMOTO
the nod. “Little did I know back in 1979 that this sport would take off
as it has, and I’m thrilled to see this new organization come along to
ensure that there will be great Supermoto riders from North America for
years to come,” commented Trippe.
