www.roadracingworld.com has two posts on it. one from sean clarke of wera (read here) and one from ccs/fusa (read here). they are doing this instead of being the title sponsor of fusa sportbike. i thnk they were posted on the 13th and 14th respectively. i believe is $2000 for a win, which i think is higher than yamaha pays. f4i, 600rr, 954 and rc51 i believe are the bike they'll pay on. they didn't specify what races would count, but it appears it'll be several ccs/fusa and wera events.

for those of us who aren't that fast, you can feel like a factory rider with team pro-mo here.

Yes, Honda is posting contingency $ this year it's cheaper for them to post contingency then to be a title sponsor for an F-USA event. Yes, F-USA is a good series but it's basically a high level CCS club event. The only real "teams" that run F-USA are Hooter's, Arclight, Roadracingworld.com. A lot of the big name riders that ran F-USA last year will not be there this year (i.e. Larry Pegram, Michael Barnes, Craig Connell, Lee Acree and I'm not sure about Matt Waite).

Heck, the Suzuki Cup Finals/GNF for WERA got TV time this past year and radio time.. the final F-USA event at Daytona (Biketober fest as some call it) got NO TV or radio time. So when your a sponsor you look to see where your going to get your best ROI (return on investment). So instead Honda posts contingency (give back to those that buy the bike). We saw the sponsorship levels to sponsor a F-USA series.. so we know roughly what it costs to title sponsor a series and posting contingency instead is a lot cheaper for Honda. But, it will be better for the privateers.
