Cameron Beaubier, MotoAmerica Superbike potential champion is well and truly on the rise to glory
With only 3 races to go he’s looking in shape to take down the MotoAmerica Racing Series and 2 points seperating Hayes and Beaubier the final 3 races are sure to be epic.
It’s the battle of the R1s, can Beaubier pull it off this year? We’ll find out soon, one thing we don’t doubt is it’s going to be very close, and if not this year, certainly in the near future.
The 22-year-old Californian had given Hayes all he could handle in the beginning of the 2014 season and looked to be a serious threat, but some costly problems and mistakes blunted his charge in the end.
Regardless, Hayes rates Beaubier as a future champion, so Yamaha was keen to get him some seat time on the new R1 as soon as possible so that he knew what to expect once the finished superbike was in his hands. The Monster Energy Graves Yamaha team ventured out to southern California’s Chuckwalla Valley Raceway for a private test to allow Beaubier to get some laps on the new R1 (in stock form with DOT race tires) under his belt. Needless to say, the Roseville native was impressed with Yamaha’s latest weapon. Check out the video below:
