 International and American riders competing in this weekend’s GEICO Motorcycle U.S. Round of eni FIM World Superbike Championship, and AMA Pro Racing support classes will be further protected by Airfence deployed by the Roadracing World Action Fund (RWAF).

“We’re pleased to provide soft-barriers to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for this weekend’s World Championship event,” said John Ulrich, founder and president of the Roadracing World Action Fund. “a total of 96 sections of RWAF-owned soft-barriers, about 2,880 linear feet, were shipped to Monterey for installation in time for the green flag to wave.”
The Airfence technology is an invaluable safety feature for motorcycle racers. It serves to alleviate potential incidents and allows riders to go all out in their pursuit of victories and championships.
The Roadracing World Action Fund is a charitable organization whose mission is to help prevent race track injuries and has deployed these barriers, known as Airfence, at road and dirt track events nationwide. The inflated barriers are positioned in front of walls and other trackside obstacles to reduce the force of impact in the event of a rider crash.
Gill Campbell, CEO/general manager of Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca said, “We are very grateful to the Roadracing World Action Fund for working with us to enhance rider safety at this event.”
