Bobby Fong and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R Earn the Double Win at COTA
April 13, 2016
The Latus Motors Racing Kawasaki team pulled into Austin, Texas for Round 1 of the MotoAmerica series ready to do battle in the Superstock class at Circuit of the Americas. Bobby Fong, a veteran to the sport but rookie on a litre bike, started off the weekend by coming to terms with his new Kawasaki Ninja® ZX™-10R and his new competition. When it came time to qualify he silenced the critics by putting the No. 50 Latus Kawasaki on pole position, with a lead of nearly three tenths of a second. Fong proved that both he and the all new Ninja ZX-10R were serious championship contenders by battling his way to a Race 1 win and dominating Race 2, taking the checkers with an over 15 second gap, over his Superstock competitors. Teammate David Anthony leaves Texas with an 8th and 6th in Race 1 and 2 respectively.
“I had a great first weekend on the Kawasaki ZX-10R,” said Fong. “The bike performed really well all weekend and my team worked hard to make it the best handling motorcycle possible for both races.”
