AHRMA: Adams and Miller Split Vintage Cup win at Laguna Seca – Roadracing World Magazine

Miller and Adams share AHRMA Vintage Cup* victories at AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ Monterey

(July 20, 2022, Elora, TN) – Mark Miller and Curtis Adams shared the victories at the final rounds of the 2022 American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Vintage Cup at Laguna Seca.

Rounds 15 and 16 of the 2022 Bridgestone Tires AHRMA National Historic Cup road racing series at Monterey’s AHRMA Classic MotoFest™ was held at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Monterey, CA on July 16-17.

The 2022 Vintage Cup, sponsored by RoadracingWorld.com, features the Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class. With most series regulars not racing these West Coast rounds, the podium was filled with fast riders from California.

On Saturday, Mark Miller, who rode a 1979 Kawasaki KZ1000, led the early laps as Curtis Adams of Riverside, Calif., struggled to bring him back. On lap five, Adams took the lead, but Miller surged out of turn eleven to take the win. Darrin Gauvin completed the top three aboard his 1981 Honda CB900F.

After the race, Saturday’s results were made interim pending a formal appeal filed by Miller’s team after another competitor protested the machine’s eligibility. AHRMA officials are currently reviewing the protest as part of the appeal process.

On Sunday, Kevin Rammer, aboard a 1982 Honda CB650SC, took the holeshot but Adams was able to take the lead at the end of the first lap and ride to victory. California driver David Crussell finished second and Rammer third. Rammer, of Newnan, Ga., picked up some valuable points as he currently leads second in points for the overall Vintage Cup title.

“Today’s race on Sunday was an opportunity to get out there and test some tires,” Adams said. “AHRMA changed the rules this year allowing slicks in this class, so we worked with Bridgestone to provide feedback that will help the series and other riders. We needed to run at a good pace just to do some testing.

Although Adams is relatively new to AHRMA, he has decades of racing experience. “A few years ago, I wanted to put on something. AHRMA put on a good show in Willow Springs, so I built a little single to go ride an AHRMA event and hang out with everyone and give me a reason to be there,” Adams said. During 2020, and almost by chance, he was able to buy his CB750F. “Once we owned it, we said ‘let’s see how far this goes. “”

The Vintage Superbike Heavyweight class is sponsored by the International CBX Owners Association (ICOA).
