Well you would not expect to see the ultra clean Japanese racing dirt track on the dirt would you ?
OTOH an unfared upright opposite locker walking over fully fared crutch rockets looks just a little staged.

It's a very short track, and we don't know what capacity the various machines are or how they're set up.
Or, for that matter, just how much grip the track surface has or what tyres they're allowed to run.

The lean angles of the fully faired machines certainly weren't anywhere near what we see in road racing.

Didn't look staged to me. Actually the fully faired road-racers looked out of place on that short track. No way could they take advantage of lean angle, nor their aerodynamics in this race where I'm guessing that 80 MPH is the top speed.

The more it looks like an asymmetrical speedway machine, the better it will probably do ... And Yellow Jersey guy on the speedway bike was riding right on the edge, he slid a bit once or twice.

If they're running these events in Japan, I'll bet the Japanese fans are going wild in the betting office wagering on these races ....

Quoted from youtube comments:

Green number 6 is a competition vehicle for gambling. The engine is Suzuki single 600cc. Number 1 is a driver with an international license. Number 2 is moto 3 rider in 2016. Number 3 is a female rider. Number 4 is MotoGP rider Aoki Nobuatsu. Number 5 is Josh Waters. Number 6 is champion Aoki of GP 125 in 1995 and 1996.

Also from youtube comments re first race:

That's an AR600 stadium bike powered by a 599 suzuki twin. Makes about 50 horsepower and has a 2 speed xmission.
It's made especially for doing circle. The other didnt stand a chance. This was a demonstration to.prove a point.


Very interesting post, amazing what some people will do, almost like the old velodrome days but without the banking.

...the stadium looks completely new; may be is in Tokyo and was made for the Olympics games...
Millions of Dollars to build it and almost nobody in the stands.
The track is ultra smooth; incredible perfect done.

Painted or resin track surface? The supermoto-style bikes would be leaving evidence if tarmac.

Gotta say it looks like a [relatively] cheap entry motorsport and a lot of fun.
