Ohioan Brian Kohl racing his Suzuki in a WERA Pro event at Indianapolis Raceway Park in August of 1992. Kohl was a solid Superstock rider, but really made his name racing the AMA Harley-Davidson 883 Series in the mid-1990s. Kohl scored a slew of top-10 finishes and even stood on the podium at Mid-Ohio, taking third in the AMA Harley-Davidson 883 Road Race National in 1994.
The grids of Superstock races in club racing events in the early ‘90s was filled with Yamaha FZR750s, Suzuki GSXR750s and a sprinkling of Honda RC30s, but here’s a bike you didn’t see at club races all that often – a Bimota. This Bimota is ridden by Matt Macheca in a WERA A Superstock race at Putnam Park in June of 1992. Macheca finished second to Paul Volpe in this race. I don’t know anymore about this bike, but would like to know more about it. Maybe someone who knows more will read this and fill us in on Matt’s early ‘90s Bimota.
