From a press release:<BR><BR>Mike Smith and Mark Sutton join Moto Britalia<BR>Ultimate road and racetrack performance requires perfection of both bike and rider, and a unique new team has joined Atlanta's Moto Britalia to hone man and machine. <BR><BR>AMA Superbike technician Mark Sutton and AMA road racer Mike Smith have created an all-round performance center for Ducatis and other sportbikes, based out of Moto Britalia's Woodstock store in Georgia. <BR><BR>Their wealth of racing experience will be available to local and national customers who want to get the most out of themselves and their bike. Whether it's for track days, competition or road-riding enjoyment and safety, they will build your knowledge, increase your confidence and improve your lap times. They can even ship your engine or bike safely to any part of the country.<BR><BR>Mike, America's second most winningest Supersport racer, is already being booked for one-on-one and group coaching, both on the road and track, and is also offering rider training in SuperMotard and MotoX.
