Maximilano Gerardo Takes Four Wins at 2022 PanAmerican Superbike Round Three

By February 10, 2022 Race Recap

Our big winner from round three of PanAmerican Superbike is Maximilano Gerardo with four race wins by sweeping both the SuperStock 1000 and SuperBike 1000 classes. Max started the day out with a 0.379 second win in the SuperStock 1000 Grande Corsa. He finished the day with a one second win in the Sunoco SuperBike 1000 Sprint along with a class record of 1:24.634.

This round we also saw Stefano Mesa coming back to his old stomping grounds. Stefano walked away with race wins in the SuperStock 600 Grande Corsa and Sunoco SuperBike 600 Grande Corsa and a third place finish in the Sunoco SuperBike 1000 Grande Corsa.

The great performances was not just limited to race wins. We were able to see twelve track lap records broken, and in some races the record was broken multiple times by different racers.

The first of the records was broken during our SuperStreet / Moto 3 Grande Corsa. Julian Correa and Belladonna Britanni both broke the lap record set last season by Belladonna, but Julian’s 1:34.632 was 0.167 faster than Belladonna. Julian Correa now holds both the Amateur and Expert Moto3 lap records at Palm Beach International Raceway and Homestead Miami Speedway! In that same race, Eduardo Aguayo set a new SuperStreet 300 Amateur lap record with a 1:43.688. While all that was happening, Avery Dreher beat his own SuperStock 400 Expert lap record by almost one second, with a 1:34.190!

Taking a look at our more seasoned racers, we have quite a rivalry building between Paul Vance and JM Padron. These two racers faced off four times. Their first meeting was in the Formula Twin Grande Corsa. Paul won the race while also setting a new Formula Twin Expert lap record of 1:32.077. Two races later, these two faced off in the Euro Light Grande Corsa. JM Padron evened the score with the win over Paul. Later in the afternoon they would have another face off in the Euro Light Sprint race. Paul was able to get some payback with a 0.345 second win over JM to take the lead, 2-1. In their final match of the day, Paul and JM gridded up for the Formula Twin Sprint race. Paul had set a high bar in the Grande Corsa race. But, JM stepped up to the challenge by not only winning the sprint race, which means Paul and JM ended the day in a 2-2 tie for wins, but JM’s 1:13.711 beat the lap record Paul had set earlier in the day.

We are looking forward to more battles at round four at Palm Beach International Raceway in April!
