The fastest lap time turned by a journalist at Miami-Dade International Speedway during the January 16 Aprilia press intro was a 1:32.0 on a RSV Mille R fitted with OEM Pirelli tires.
The fastest rider at the intro was Roadracing World's Racing Editor, Chris Ulrich, who was making his first visit to Homestead.
The motorcycle lap record at Homestead is 1:27.0, set by Grant Lopez on a Formula Xtreme 840cc GSX-R750 on Michelin radial slicks in December 1999. According to former racer Henry Degouw, who runs races at Homestead under CCS sanction, a 1:32.0 is a very competitive Heavyweight Supersport class lap time at the facility.
