Fong On Fire!

ALTON, Virginia (May 14, 2017)

For the second time this year, Bobby Fong’s Quicksilver Latus Motors Kawasaki Racing Team had a triple podium weekend during the third round of the MotoAmerica Series two-race weekend held at Virgina International Raceway (VIR).  The weekend was somewhat of an exciting replay of Round 1, as the team placed first in the Superstock 1000 class for each race, but Fong was running so strong that he also placed third in the Superbike class in race one.  Noteworthy is the fact that in race two the team placed fourth overall, just missing another Superbike podium.

After mixed results in Atlanta, Fong was back to his usual form playing the role of the calm, collected elder statesmen while others pushed harder than they should or looked uncomfortable on the track.  All weekend long, the team was right in the mix of the factory supported Superbikes and the usual pronounced gap between the two classes was non-existent.  Team owner George Latus commented, “This is our second year with the Kawasaki bike, so this season we are able to spend far more time with the fine tuning adjustments needed to win races, as opposed to learning about the basic quirks and nuances of this the fine machine.  We also have new components on the way to make the bike even better. With one-quarter of the races now in the books, we are feeling even more confident about the rest of the season.”
