From 2003 to 2009 KTM Motosports teamed with HMC Racing to win 10 Supermoto National Championships. Those winning teams were lead by HMC Racing’s Mitch Hanson. The old partners have gotten back together to tackle road racing on the AMA Pro Superbike Road Racing Championship Series.
KTM is very excited about the team’s prospects. Brad Hagi, KTM North America Vice President of Sales, had this to say, ”Together, Mitch and (rider) Chris Fillmore formulate the perfect team to launch the development of our Superbike racing effort in the United States. They have both been tied to every major road racing effort KTM has assembled in North America and we are excited to see it escalate to this level of competition. With the national success KTM has had in the German Superbike Championship (IDM) and with a brand nucleus of ”Ready to Race” it is the obvious move to take our motorcycle to the next logical step: U.S. AMA Superbike Racing.”
Here at the Motorcycle Insurance Company, we think the AMA Pro Superbike Road Racing Championship Series may never be the same after the Austrians arrive. Here’s hoping they return to their winning ways.
