Miller Motorsports Park Signs Contract Extension with HANNspree Superbike World Championship

TOOELE VALLEY, UTAH (May 30, 2009) -- Officials at Miller Motorsports Park announced today that the track has signed a contract extension with Infront Motor Sports, the Italian-based company that owns and operates the HANNspree FIM Superbike World Championship, that will keep the World Superbike and World Supersport series on its calendar through 2013.

The new extension adds three years to the original three-year contract, which went into effect in 2008.

"We could not be more pleased to reach this agreement with Infront Motor Sports," said MMP CEO and President Dan Davis. "It was important to us to secure this event for Miller Motorsports Park and fans across North America. Over the past few years, the business plan for the FIM Superbike World Championship has proven to be insightful and prudent, and we feel the championship is better positioned than any other racing series in the world right now. The management and staff of Infront Motor Sports, as well as the teams in the championship, have been terrific to work with. We have established a very good working partnership, and we look forward to five more successful and mutually beneficial years together."

"Miller Motorsports Park is a world-class facility, and we have been extremely satisfied with our first event in Utah last year," said Infront Motor Sports SBK Director Paolo Ciabatti. "Teams and riders really enjoyed the experience and as a result they voted MMP for the 'Circuit of the Year' award, as the best venue of the 2008 championship. The new agreement is a demonstration of the excellent relationships with the management and staff of Miller Motorsports Park and shows our commitment to the U.S. market. With seven manufacturers officially engaged in our series and 30 permanent riders, the FIM Superbike World Championship is now stronger than ever and therefore we look forward to a successful and long-lasting relationship with Miller Motorsports Park for the years to come."
