MJM Enters Monterey World Superbike Round
EAST TROY, Wis. – The Michael Jordan Motorsports team has announced they will contest the FIM Superbike World Championship race scheduled for Sept. 27-28 at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, Calif.
MJM’s Roger Hayden and Danny Eslick will race their Jordan Suzuki GSX-R1000s as wildcard entries during the World Superbike doubleheader.
“We are really enthusiastic about racing World Superbike at Laguna Seca,” said MJM Team Manager Pete Mauhar. “It will be a very challenging and fun opportunity for our riders and crew. It’s also a good way to evaluate how we stack up on the international level with the existing teams in the series.
“Because it’s a quick turnaround from our last race, we won’t have much time to prepare for this event and we realize we’ll be at a bit of a competitive disadvantage from the equipment aspect. However, we are genuinely thrilled to be a part of this event and are looking forward to an exciting weekend of racing.”
The 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship season saw the MJM team come together and turn in a solid effort, with National Guard Jordan Suzuki’s Hayden finishing on the podium six times. Likewise, Eslick brought home 10 top-five finishes.
