Rain Forces Cancellation Of Sears Point Tests, But The Good News Is That Track Drainage Will Be Improved

A scheduled two-day AMA Superbike test session at Sears Point Raceway by factory Kawasaki, Honda and Suzuki teams was canceled due to water seeping up through the track surface as the result of recent heavy rain, according to a press release issued by the track.

But in a piece of good news, the release stated "Track officials say they will install a sub-surface drainage system at certain areas on the track prior to the AMA Superbike Challenge in May in order to better deal with wet weather."

The 2001 AMA Pro Superbike race at Sears Point is scheduled for May 4-6. The 2000 race at the track was cancelled due to rain and related drainage problems.
