Suzuki Privateer Appreciation Practice Day Scheduled For Thursday Before AMA National At California Speedway

By April 15, 2005April 26th, 20212005 News

A Suzuki Privateer Appreciation Practice Day will be held at California Speedway on Thursday, April 28 to ensure that AMA Pro Racing privateers have a chance to sort out and set up their racebikes for the April 29-May 1 Suzuki Superbike Challenge AMA Nationals held at the Fontana, California racetrack. The practice day is open to all AMA Pro Racing-licensed riders who are competing in the weekend’s AMA Nationals, on any brand motorcycle.

The practice day is sponsored by Suzuki and is being presented by Fastrack Riders in conjunction with Team Hammer.

The day will be organized with 30-minute sessions alternating between two groups, 600cc Supersport and Formula Xtreme machines in one group, Superbike and Superstock machines in the other group. Practice sessions will run from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and the track will be set up just as it will be for the start of official AMA practice on Friday, with soft barriers and haybales in place.

Secondary rider medical insurance is included and cornerworking and ambulance crews will be on site.

Riders can pre-enter for $175 and avoid a $50 post-entry fee; signing up to run in both practice groups will cost another $100. Charges are per rider, per practice group, not per bike, which means a rider with a primary and a spare racebike can practice on both machines without any extra charges.

Advance registration is available online at; more information is available by calling 877-560-2233.
