This weekend, BMW Motorcycle fans and riders have the opportunity to witness history in the making.

How? By tuning into the broadcast of the inaugural SunTrust Moto-ST Eight Hours at Daytona on the Speed Channel from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time this Sunday, December 17th.

This high-adrenaline program will showcase the historic victory achieved by the San Jose BMW Motorcycles team as they brought home the checkered flag. Not since Steve McLaughlin won the very first AMA Superbike race back in 1976 on an R 90 S had a BMW Motorcycles team won at Daytona. You may have already known about this stunning win, but now you can see all the drama, all the passion, and all the white-hot action unfold before your eyes this Sunday on Speed Channel.

If you love racing, and you love BMW Motorcycles, this is an opportunity not to be missed. So this Sunday, December, 17th tune in for the inaugural SunTrust Moto-ST Eight Hours at Daytona on the Speed Channel from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Should you detect the smell of race fuel and smoldering rubber in your living room, don't be surprised, because this race was intense from the first lap to the last!

That's not all - Brian Parriott and Nate Kern will be at the San Mateo IMS Show this weekend (December 15-17) to sign autographs and show outtakes and 'behind-the-scenes' video from the Moto-ST race. 3 riders, 1 historic victory.

You'll see riders Brian Parriott, Nate Kern, and Stephane Mertens battle it out against the M4 EMGO Suzuki team aboard their stock #46 BMW R 1200 S. The Suzuki team had over twenty-five years of endurance racing experience and the fight between them and the BMW team on Daytona's legendary high-banked turns was totally intense.

You'll also see the team from BMW Motorcycles of Daytona competing, as well as riders from Touring Sport BMW who fielded a team as well.

Don't miss these BMW teams lappin' it up!

The TV coverage is a bit lackluster, but the race is fun to watch anyway. Some on-bike camera action would be cool, but so far nothing. It's nice to see BMW, Aprilia and Buell out on the track. As for Buell, it's nice to see them in a series they actually qualify for.;-) The BMWs look like the powers to beat.

The race is just now moving into the dark and a Duc just went down due to the cooling track. The night racing should be exciting.

The goofy announcer keeps referring to the Kaw EX500's as KX500s! Get it right, goof ball!

I agree, some helmet cams would have spiced it up alot.

It is hard for me to grasp why the news media (SpeedTV included) is so superficial. There was a great story and link to the early Superbike days with Chris Hodgson's (San Jose BMW) entry. To get a little better background, try these links:
