During round 2 of the 2022 PanAmerican SuperBike season, we saw some familiar and some new faces on the podium. Continuing his dominance is the SuperStock and Sunoco SuperBike 600 class, Max Angles with the PDR Motorsports team found himself on the top podium spot in both the Grande Corsa and Sprint races for SuperStock 600 and Sunoco SuperBike 600 class with four wins overall. We saw a bit more excitement within our 1000 class. 2021 Expert overall champion Alex Arango with Top Pro Motorsports started the day with a 0.024 second win over Maximilano Gerardo in the SuperStock 1000 Grande Corsa race. Later that morning, Alex returned to the track to win the Sunoco SuperBike 1000 Grande Corsa race. Later in the day, Maximilano Gerardo with PDR Motorsports was able to bring home the win in the SuperStock 1000 Sprint race. At the end of the day, we witnessed another close battle between Alex Arango and Maximilano Gerardo in the Sunoco SuperBike 1000 Sprint race with Maximiliano pulling off a 0.166 second win over Alex.
First year Expert racer, Zane Lefko completed a sweep with wins both Expert Formula Twin Grande Corsa and Sprint races. Another first timer in the Formula Twins class, Michael Blum with Top Pro Motorsports team repeated his round 1 success with wins in the Amateur Formula Twins Grande Corsa and Sprint races. Continuing the streak of sweeps, Edward Smith managed his first sweep with wins in the Amateur Euro Light Grande Corsa and Sprint races.
In round 1, we witness Avery Dreher beat his own lap record in the SuperStock 400. Not one to rest on his laurels, round 2 saw Avery pushed the SuperStock 400 Expert lap record under the 1:26 mark with a 1:25.998. The youth movement continues to raise the bar. Julian Correa with SFlMinGp team broke his own lap record with 1:24.269. Riding his back wheel was Belladonna Britanni with 1:24.550. It’s going to be exciting when we return to PBIR in April to see which one of these racers will ride away with the lap record.
From one end of the age spectrum, we switch gears to our Formula 50 1000 racers. The Amateur Formula 50 racers put on a quite the show. On lap five, Tim Chin broke the lap record with a 1:21.241, but he held that record for only 0.198 seconds. Michael Blum crossed the line with a 1:21.067 to snatch that lap record away from Tim. In our Expert racer Victor Silva with the +Power Moto Racing Team broke his own record with a 1:20.428.
We will have to wait until April to see if any more lap records are broken at PBIR. In February, PanAmerican SuperBike will be headed south to Homestead-Miami Speedway for Round 3 of the 2022 season!
