Motorsport events in the US of A are well known for their glitz and glamour, differentiating them from the rest of the world, and the ongoing Triumph Superbike Classic 2012 in Birmingham, Atlanta, promises to be no different.

Moreover, they will also get a chance to take their own motorcycle onto the 2.38-mile track, witness stunt-shows etc and door prizes such as race tickets, motorcycle parade lap passes and event merchandise will be given away as well.
Twenty-eight riders have committed to the track walk, including the likes of Austin DeHaven, (you might remember our encounter with him at the California Superbike School this January) Roger Hayden, Blake Young, Chris Ulrich, Cory West etc.
At the end of Friday’s on-track activities, all Friday ticket holders attending the event will be allowed to walk the picturesque track with the stars of the AMA Pro. The track walk will be free to all ticket holders and ZOOM Motorsports, the exclusive promoter at the Barber Motorsports Park, will donate a portion of the day’s ticket sales to the Roadracing World Action Fund.
