WERA GNF At Road Atlanta May Feature 55 Sections Of Air Fence

The WERA Grand National Finals/Suzuki Cup Finals at Road Atlanta, scheduled for October 24-28, may feature 55 sections of Air Fence and Alpina Air Module.

The event will host the final round of the AMA Pro Thunder Series.

The Roadracing World Air Fence Fund has already provided for 20 sections of Alpina Air Module to be deployed at the race, through a cooperative agreement with Alpina.

And WERA Operations Manager Sean Clarke said today at VIR that AMA Pro Racing has agreed to send its Air Fence to the WERA GNF as well.

If all 35 sections of AMA Air Fence show up at Road Atlanta, the event would have 55 sections in use, a new U.S. record.

AMA Pro Racing did not deploy its Air Fence at other WERA races which hosted AMA Pro Thunder races, at Summit Point and at Portland.

WERA and AMA Pro Racing have a loosely-defined working agreement, short of formal affiliation.
