Miguel Duhamel Returning to AMA Superbike for Laguna Seca Round


Miguel Duhamel heads out of the pitlane at Mid Ohio during the summer of '91 on the Team Commonwealth Camel Honda RC30 for a rain practice session. Duhamel earlier in the season had won his first of five Daytona 200's while on his maiden ride for the Louisville-based Camel Honda team while replacing their injured rider, the late Randy Renfrow. Duhamel went on to also win 5 AMA 600 Supersport Championships and two AMA Formula Xtreme Championships.
The ride for the AMA round in Laguna Seca will be Duhamel's first on a Ducati in two wheel competition after having ridden Honda's for the better part of his racing career. Some exceptions to that are when he contested the World 500cc Championship for Yamaha in '92 and when he returned to AMA action in '93 riding for Team Muzzy Kawasaki. Duhamel won one of his 600 Championships while riding for Muzzy that year, as well. He also won his first AMA Superbike race at Heartland Park in 1990 while riding a Suzuki. Miguel last competed in AMA competition in the Daytona 200 at the beginning of the 2009 season on a Suzuki prepped by the Canadian Picotte Performance team.

Good news to hit the motorcycle racing news pike this week is the return of 1995 AMA Superbike Champion Miguel Duhamel to the grid of the AMA Superbike round at Laguna Seca at the end of this month.
Teaming with Team Forza on a Ducati 1098R, Miguel will throw a leg over for this round in an attempt to help raise awareness for TERI Services for Children and Adults with Autism. At the time this is scheduled to be a one-off ride and any future rides, according to the press release anyway, would be based strictly on future sponsorship.
