Polini Cup

(Redirected from Polini cup)

The Polini Cup is an annual racing series held in Atwater, CA 5 weekends during the spring and summer. PoliniUSA (now SPI Parts) hosts the event which provides racing for mopeds, scooters, pitbikes, nsr, gopeds, go quads and more. 2009 was the first year with a moped specific class. This open class started out fairly casual, but as the season progressed, many innovations hit the track and the racing grew more exciting. During the season, 2 additional moped classes were added; first twist-n-go which puts mopeds head-to-head against scooters, and later the Puch Polini class featuring e50 Polini builds.

The 2010 season begins in April with many new and innovative builds planned. Key teams include MotoMatic with Tommy, Tony, Alan, and Jimmy; 1977 Mopeds with Elliot, Round and Dan ; Choke with Jeff and Nikolas; and the Cuperteens with Tom, Matt and Zack. Team HYR from seattle made a few appearances with Terry Dean (now racing with MotoMatic) and Columbus Josh. Additional racers are expected to show up as well
