Improving American Mountain Course Exponent Sarbora Daytona 200 Bound

Mountain Course racing pedigree is set to join the Daytona 200 field in October, as Seattle based Chris Sarbora takes on an enterprising new challenge.

Sarbora who placed 17th, 14th in last August’s Junior, Senior Manx GP Races was set to return to TT Races, piloting PRL Racing supported YZF R6 Yamaha machinery within the four lap Monster Energy Supersport races.

As the Covid-19 pandemic has put pay to the bulk of the major roads events, it’s forced an obvious re-think as to his racing plans for the remainder of 2020.

Speaking via Facebook about this topic, plus looking ahead to competition at Daytona, the ambitious American rider candidly stated:

“I’m thrilled to announce that, in addition to joining the big show when MotoAmerica comes to the Ridge Motorsports Track in August, I will be representing Superbike Underground, MotoVixens, WMRRA and the entire Pacific Northwest in the 79th running of the Daytona 200 this October.

With the cancellation of the Isle of Man TT, Classic TT, The North West 200 and Manx Grand Prix, the rescheduled Daytona 2000 turned out to be the perfect opportunity to stay sharp and fit for a long and gruelling solo endurance race.”
