If You Build It, They Will Race: Troy Lee's Dual at the Docks Supermoto Race

Queen Mary being transformed into ultimate supermoto venue

The Queen and her courtyard are getting a massive makeover this week, as crews are working 'round the clock' to prepare for this weekend's supermoto championships. Check out these images that show how the harborside in Long Beach is becoming the most innovative and exciting track in AMA supermoto history.

Troy Lee's "Duel At The Docks" begins on Friday, Nov. 3rd with practice sessions that are open to the public. Saturday the 4th will feature amateur racing in the NASMOTO (North American Supermoto) championship, with the AMA Supermoto Championship national final taking place on Sunday the 5th.

Tickets are available at www.troyleedesigns.com and at participating Southern California Honda motorcycle dealers. Prices are $15/Friday, $25/Saturday, $35/Sunday, or $50 for the whole weekend. Kids age 12 and under get in free with a paid adult using a voucher available at Honda motorcycle dealers. A limited number of motorcycles will be able to park in the Queen Mary lot, while those in autos will park at the nearby Long Beach Convention Center and take advantage of a convenient stream of shuttle buses and watercraft to and from the racetrack.
