Chris Carr and Mike Himmelsbach are scheduled to ride RSV Mille R Aprilias for the first time at Roebling Road Raceway in Faulkville, Georgia on Saturday, January 20 and Sunday, January 21. The two will break in four machines and test tires, in their first outing with the Blackmans Cycle team they'll ride for in Formula USA competition.
While Himmelsbach will campaign the entire Formula USA Unlimited Superbike season, Carr will ride only at the two Daytona rounds in the series, due to conflicting dates with the dirt track events Carr concentrates on. At conflicting dates, Blackmans will field Vincent Haskovec, a Czech immigrant now living in Temecula, California.
Haskovec is slated to fly to Pennsylvania to meet with Blackmans Cycle Racing Manager Kris Bickford the week after the tests at Roebling Road.
