Motorcycles have just taken to the course at Portland International Raceway, site of this weekend's Formula USA National, and 14 sections of Alpina Air Module/Air Fence are in place.<BR><BR>"Portland is a real safe racetrack anyway, but the Air Fence helps supplement some of the areas used by CART and drag racing," said Kenny Abbott, National Road Racing Manager for Formula USA. "We want to definitely thank the Roadracing World Air Fence Fund, Parts Unlimited, OMRRA, Portland International Raceway and Alpina for working together on this great project. We're also using several pieces on the Super TT track."<BR><BR>Today's activities at Portland include the Team Hammer Advanced Riding School and Track Ride as well as Pro Practice, with the track already set-up to Formula USA specifications with full cornerworking crew and ambulances on stand-by.<BR><BR><BR>
