DUNLOP SWEEPS PACIFIC RACEWAYS PODIUM TWICE

Sam Verderico, Dunlop Race Tire Service Motorcycle RacingLed by #1 Plate Sam Verderico, Dunlop riders twice swept the Formula Ultra podium during WMRRA racing at Pacific Raceways over the August 27-28 weekend. Dunlop riders dominated the premier Formula Ultra Class during the weekend, claiming all three spots on the podium during Saturday’s races with Verderico taking first place, Danny Lippis second place, and Mark DeGross third place. The trio finished in the same order during Formula Ultra race on Sunday.

“My Dunlops have been perfect,” Verderico said of his US Made slicks. “I haven’t set a wheel wrong all year at either the National or the Club level. These things rock!”

Verderico, who rides the new DUNLOP KR448 soft compound front and the DUNLOP KR451 rear, also earned wins in the Open SuperSport and Open SuperBike races this weekend.

DeGross, with the help of his podium finishes in the Formula Ultra races, sits in first place in the points standings with a 92 point lead over Verderico in second place with just one more round of racing remaining in the WMRRA season.

But perhaps the most surprising results of the weekend came from Lippis, who made his first appearance at Pacific Raceway since 2008 and still managed to earn a spot on the podium in both Formula Ultra races.

 

The WMRRA season wraps up with the sixth and final leg of racing on September 17-18 back at Pacific Raceways.
