MotoAmerica Series returns to Road America for next two years

MotoAmerica and Road America have inked a new two-year deal that will see the MotoAmerica Series return to Elkhart Lake for the next two seasons.

The 2019 Dunlop Championship at Road America will be held on its traditional date of the first weekend in June (May 31- June 2).

AMA Superbikes have been racing on the four-mile road course in Wisconsin since Freddie Spencer won the first Superbike race there in 1980.

“We are very happy that MotoAmerica will be returning for the next two years,” said MotoAmerica President Wayne Rainey, who won the AMA Superbike race at Road America in 1986. “As a racer, Road America was always one of my favorite places to race and it is arguably our most popular venue with our fans, teams and riders. The track is top-notch, and the high speeds there always translate into close racing. You only have to look back at this year’s two Motul Superbike races to see proof of that: Cameron Beaubier beat Josh Herrin to the line by just .002 of a second in Race 1 and .195 of a second in Race 2. And it’s the perfect venue for spectators, especially those who make a weekend out of it and camp on site at the track. Like our fans, we always look forward to the first weekend in June in Elkhart Lake.”


The feature of the 2019 WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman presented by HAWK will be a special MG ‘Focus Event’ at Road America.

Widely known as one of the largest vintage racecar gatherings in the United States, featuring several classes of cars racing in multiple groups, the WeatherTech International Challenge will return on July 18-21.

The mid-summer classic will include everything from a special concourse on Friday and Saturday along the streets of Elkhart Lake, to a Historic CAN-AM race, plus All-MG Races and a special scenic drive for any non-racing MG’s on Tuesday of race week.

“This event has become an annual tradition for hundreds of racers, enthusiasts and thousands of fans every year,” said George Bruggenthies, president and general manager of Road America. “We are extremely proud to announce that the event will pay tribute to the MG with an MG ‘Focus Event’ as it celebrates its 60th anniversary. Road America is poised to usher in the celebration with a racer’s reunion, races for club and pro series-vintage, historic and contemporary racers, a scenic drive for non-racing MG’s; a concourse with expert and people’s choice awards, track touring, parade laps and a vendor marketplace making the 2019 WeatherTech International Challenge with Brian Redman presented by HAWK an event that everyone of all ages can enjoy.”

Founded in the 1920s by Cecil Kimber, MGs were produced by The MG Car Company Limited, and were best known for their two-seat open sports cars. After World War II, Mgs grew in popularity in the US as the ‘entry level’ sports car for most young sports car enthusiasts. After its inception in the 1920s, the MG marque was in continuous use for over 50 years, with the exception of World War II.
