The opening round of the 2023 MotoAmerica Medallia Superbike Championship starts this Friday at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, and rider Mathew Scholtz, along with the entire Westby Racing team, are poised to reap the rewards of their productive preseason testing program.
Several new upgrades were made to the team’s #11 Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike over the past few months—including electronics, engine, suspension, and chassis—and Mathew and the team are excited the see how they stack up against the stiff competition in MotoAmerica, which is one of the world’s premier national motorcycle road racing organizations.
“I can’t wait to get this season started,” Mathew said. “We had a very productive off-season with the new software package, as well as all the other upgrades to the bike. Road Atlanta is one of my favorite tracks. I’ve got neighbors and friends coming out to watch me race, so it’s always special there. The weather looks like it’s going to be pretty good, so I’m excited to get out there and mix it up with the boys and see how everyone fares up. And we’ll take the season from there. I’m very confident that we’ll be battling up at the sharp end of the field.”
Superbike final qualifying is on Saturday morning at 10:25 a.m. ET, Superbike race one will go green on Saturday afternoon at 3:10 p.m. ET, and Superbike race two is on Sunday afternoon also at 3:10 p.m. ET. Both races will be broadcast live on MotoAmerica’s YouTube Channel.
