Carl Cox Motorsport New Zealand Sidecar Team attending the AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ of Monterey
MONTEREY, Calif., May 18, 2023 – The American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) announces the participation of the All Ladies Carl Cox Motorsport New Zealand Sidecar Team during the AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ of Monterey this coming July.
The Team comes to the historic WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca track at the invitation of Laroque Motorsports and AMA Hall of Fame Inductee Larry Coleman.
The Sidecar Racing Association describes this high-speed sport as “using 3-wheeled motorcycles that can hit speeds of 160mph. This is the only form of motorsport where the passenger and driver both steer the vehicle. Between the incredible cornering speed and the acrobatics of the passengers, sidecars are the most amazing sight on the racing circuit.”
“We are very excited to have the world class New Zealand sidecar team of Tracey Bryan and Jo Franzen accept our invitation to travel to the U.S. to experience the historic Laguna Seca course,” said Maurice Laroque-Turgeau, President Laroque Motorsports. “Tracey and Jo recently completed the New Zealand National Series and have also just won the New Zealand Grand Prix. Their sponsor, Carl Cox Motorsport, is a major supporter of two-wheeled motorsports around the globe and we’re glad to welcome them to compete against some of our finest teams. Special thanks to sidecar champion and huge supporter of the sport Larry Coleman for his introductions and support. We’d also like to thank Barnett Clutches and Cables for being their U.S. sponsor for the WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca event.”
AHRMA will feature sidecar practice on Friday and racing on Saturday and Sunday, July 14-16.
