Please cooperate saving Japan Flattrack racing.
Dear flattrack racing fans:
On May 23, 2011 Japanese flattrack race riders, participants, race crews, and concerned persons got the news as notice of determination that Twinring Motegi will finish the Motegi Dirttrack Race Series on this 2011 season end, and they will close the dirttrack on May 2012, says the general manager of Twinring Motegi. The manager said it depends on "Retreat by a management decision". But we cannot consent it.
In the '80s, HONDA built the factory tuned famous flattrack racebikes, RS600Ds, RS750Ds, competed witth Harley-Davidson's XR750s and others, and overcame in GNC: AMA Grand National Championship. They built several flattarck-styled street legal bike, FTR250 in '80s, FTR223 in this decade in Japan. They also sold Mugen-Honda-tuned flattrack race bike MFT250s in mid 2000s. And now, in whole world, many flattrack riders ride Honda CRFs,100s to 450s.
Honda won GNC, HONDA made factory twins and singles, and we believed the door to the next generation was opened by Honda.
"Retreat of the flattrack managements in Twinring Motegi" has two means.
First, the only official flattrack race series in Japan will disappear.
Second, we will lose the biggest and only racetrack that provides the dlrttrack motorcycle sport with a safe facility, in this country.
We are deeply understanding and worried about Honda, because of this world-wide economy situations and the big earthquake on March 11, 2011
in Japan. But Honda should not kill this category in Japan, by the world leading motor company's social responsibility.
We love this beautiful sport.
We never want to stop "GOING FAST & TURNING LEFT RACING" in Japan.
We ask for withdrawal that retreat of the flattrack managements in Twinring Motegi.
