AMA Pro road racer Skip Salenius will be re-entering the race scene this coming weekend after taking the 2012 race season off.

‘Furia de Motores’ Costa Rica is scheduled for the 27th and 28th of October, 2012 at the Autódromo La Guácima and will feature car shows, drifting rallies, car tuning and of course motorcycle racing.

Salenius was approached by local rider Roger Diaz to come down and help him set up and race his personal, newly prepped Yamaha R1 Superbike in the 1000cc Superbike class on Sunday.

“I’m very excited at the opportunity to line up on the grid for the first time this year,” said Salenius. “I took a break from racing this year to be a dad and instruct with the TrackTactics track-day organization. I have had a lot of seat time this year but it’s just not the same as racing. I’m looking forward to the challenge of going and learning a new track on a new motorcycle in another part of the world.”

Salenius will be racing alongside Ivan Sala from Costra Rica, who raced earlier this year in AMA Pro Superbike at Laguna Seca, as well as Slovakian rider Sandra Stammova who contested the 1000cc Superstock class in the 2012 1000cc British Superbike Series.

Furia de Motores Costa Rica is being put on by RumbaScostarica, an organization dedicated to present, cover, review and publish the most significant social-events, concerts, fashion, night life, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, tuning, motorcycles, 4×4’s, tourisms, sports, club, artists etc… for all the people who love a “GOOD RUMBAS”!
