Pro Race Motorcycles and Sports Bikes Racing
A half a dozen times a year or so there are organized motorcycle racing events that take place at the renowned Hallett Race Track (located between Tulsa and Stillwater, OK). The day that we visited featured three different class of motorcycle riders. We were easily able to tell the difference in the skill of each class. In one group all of the sports bikes race full on with the front tires lifting under hard acceleration and every driver’s knee nearly touching the pavement in fast turns, however in the next group most of the sports bike racers did not ride quite as fast on the straightaways or lean as far into each of the corners on the track. Despite this, all of the groups of sport bikes were racing fast in our opinion. The Hallett race track is a preferred course for sports bike riders in the region due to its sufficient straightaways, diversity of turns (right and left sided) and elevation changes. Additionally, Hallett is safer than some other places to race crotch rockets since in most areas of the course the cement and tire walls are a relatively lengthy distance from the track, so your more apt to slide in the grass than slam into the wall. We observed nearly every different type and brand of crotch rocket at this event including a Suzuki GSX-R750, Triumph Daytona 600, Yamaha R1, Aprilia RSV1000R, Honda CBR1000RR, Triumph Daytona 675 and many Ducati sports bikes including the coveted 1098S sports bike. We hope you enjoy the motorcycle racing videos and pictures!
