A brief update on how the weekend went at VIR. In a word, excellent!


Nate got a huge win Saturday in ThunderBike on the white Morton's BMW R1200S, with Steve Kennedy coming in second on Nate's backup black R1200S. This was the first time Steve had raced on the R1200S, so it was even more impressive a ride.


On Sunday, Nate rode his black R1200S to another win in the 69-lap endurance race. Even more amazing was that he did the race SOLO -- unlike most teams, he had no replacement rider. He rode the entire two hour race in the hot sun by himself!


After that, he took out the HP2 Sport in SuperTwins and had another impressive victory, running away from the entire field and lapping many in the seven lap sprint.


Complete results for the Morton's BMW team:

Nate Kern

- Expert Middleweight Grand Prix - 2nd place on the R1200S

- Expert SuperTwins - 1st place on the HP2 Sport

- Expert ThunderBike - 1st place on the R1200S


Steve Kennedy

- Expert Lightweight Superbike - 4th place on the F800ST

- Expert Lightweight SuperSport - 13th place on the F800ST

- Expert Lightweight Grand Prix - 2nd place on the F800ST

- Expert GTU - 11th place on the R1200S

- Expert ThunderBike - 2nd place on the R1200S


Great job by two very talented riders, and many thanks to all who came to the track, cheered the guys on, and helped ua all out! I'll have some photos up on our website in a day or two.Steve Anderson
