“The plan to rebuild the sport of supermoto is grounded in taking realistic steps and not overpromising what can be done in the near term. I think the hype about supermoto and promises of what could be achieved with the sport in the past are some of the things that hampered the growth of supermoto. Supermoto has all the qualities to be a highly successful motor sport. It is extremely exciting, fairly easy to locate events near major metropolitan areas and has always produced excellent ratings when televised. Even with all these qualities and more the sport lacks true infrastructure and strong support at the local level. None of that is going to happen overnight, but it will happen if someone is focused on it. Rebuilding supermoto will take a couple of years, but after the initial infrastructure is in place, sponsors and fans can expect steady growth in the category and a racing calendar they can count on,” added Kuhlenkamp.
