Now- if DMG were watching this and invited their riders to do something like that we'd be in high cotton. Imagine 20 guys all in the top five of their classes and a few non-roadracers (with bike experience). Kinda like an IROC of motorcycle racing. That's entertainment!

For a £10,995 ($16,886) entrance fee, each racer will compete on KTM RC8 with race bodywork, Akrapovic exhaust, Marchesini wheels and GB Racing engine covers. Entrants can keep the bike after the season is complete.
Such a DEAL!

Really, name ONE other series you can get-into this inexpensively and have a prepped bike, entrance fees, bike maintenance (so it seems at first blush - they want to keep the bikes 100% equal like the IROC series) and will compete on "level ground" with all the other entrants - only ability separating each racer.

My God! Just think how little people in the US would care about this without the backing of something like NASCAR to promote it!

I recently contacted both the AMA and DMG about this topic and the possibility of doing so in America.

Their response was, "HURRRRRRRRRR."

Gee, wonder if a bold new series like this would help the popularity of AMA? Naaah.
