Oh and if the classes sound familiar it’s because you have seen this racing before especially if you’re a Motorcycle racing or MotoGP fan, because MotoAmerica is the new series that replaced AMA Superbike Championship series, for which I have participated myself a few years at NJMP.
It’s an absolutely wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in marshaling.

One of the coolest things I experienced pertaining to this series was hearing a Taiwanese marshal I worked the Singapore GP with rant and rave how much he likes to watch AMA Superbikes… and even though I worked the event several times I knew very little about it.
