Stefano Mesa claimed his second lap record of the year during the Memorial Day weekend Cyclefest event at Summit Point Motorsports Park. Mesa broke his own, nearly two-year standing record during the Unlimited Grand Prix race on the two-mile-long Summit Point Circuit. The new record pace was set during lap three of the race with a lap time 1:10.551. The previous record was set on August 19, 2018 with a lap time of 1:10.728.
Mesa was not only the fastest, but winningest racer in an event filled with packed grids in all classes. Mesa claimed a whopping total of nine victories, finishing the weekend undefeated. Day one of racing was overshadowed by rain and cooling temperatures, but did not put a damper on the level of competition. Mesa had to work his was through traffic to get to the front in all of his classes before taking victories in the 25 minute-long GTO, 25 minute-long GTU, and Unlimited Superbike races.
On day two, the air was clear, the sun came out, and Mesa was back on board both his Pirelli-shod Kawasaki ZX-6R and ZX-10R machines to win another six classes. He wrapped up the weekend with wins in the Unlimited Supersport, Middleweight Supersport, Middleweight Superbike, and Unlimited Grand Prix sprint races, as well as the ASRA Sportbike and ASRA Superstock races. In true privateer fashion, Mesa’s biggest supporters in the pits are his mom and dad, Karen and Mauricio Mesa. Pirelli, KWS Motorsports, Thermosman Suspension and a handful of other industry leaders also help support the Mesa37Racing team’s efforts.
Luigi Mora was the second-winningest racer of the event, with a total of five victories. On Sunday, he won the GT 500, Moto 3, and Superbike 300 races. And, on Monday, he won the GP 300 and Supersport 300 classes. Mora is supported by Luigi Motorsport, Sinister Racing Hustle Hard Racing, Spear Racing, and Vortex.
