Team Roberts keep Kurtis onboard for Laguna Seca

With their new chassis finally arriving for the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix, Team Roberts have elected to continue running Kurtis Roberts for the race at Laguna Seca.

Kenny Roberts Jr, who finished fourth in last year's American showdown, had been expected to return from a self-imposed hiatus for his home race, but will now not run with the KR212V on Sunday. Brother Kurtis, who has been riding for his father's team since Mugello, will continue his stand-in stint instead.

The delivery of the long-awaited new parts ran right down to the wire, with Team Manager Chuck Aksland flying last to the U.S. in order to bring the latest developments with him in checked luggage.
