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.
