Stotz Racing Competition report: 2007 Winter Testing

There have been rumors that I crashed in testing on Tuesday Jan. 23rd. Thank God this is not true. Stotz Racing had rented track time at Bradenton Motorsports Park that whole week. Our test session did come to an abrupt end when the chain broke at 155 mph at the 1/8th mile. The chain tore through the chain guard, tail section, subframe, but my left pelvic bone finally stopped it. As you can imagine this hurt very bad, but I got the bike stopped upright and I laid down. The track and emergency personnel were great. I had a small hole in my back above the pelvic bone. I got to the hospital and got stitched up. Mark got me back home and the Doc says it is healing nicely. We will be more than ready for the season opener in Valdosta GA. to start Bike Week.

On a more positive note, all the work we did starting as soon as we got home from the finals is paying off. The RR went consistent 4.90's- 5.00 to the 1/8 mile and that works out to high 7.40's low 7.50's. These times will get us to the semi-finals every time and the finals often. There was still quite a bit to test when we got cut short. We are looking forward to more performance from the RR at the first race.

The new ProStreet RR is not quite done. We have to take some of it's parts to fix the RR I just tore up.

The SuperStreet RR is almost done and we are looking to test that before the Valdosta race. All things look good and thank all of you that were concerned when you heard that I had crashed. No crash just a broke chain and a little hole.

Sincerely in Speed,
Kent
