Erik Buell Racing to contest the 2014 WSBK Championship
The Team Hero EBR will make the switch from the AMA Superbike series to the World Superbike championship in 2014. A two rider team will be formed, running the new 2014 EBR 1190RX. Riders will be Geoff May and Aaron Yates. The team will be run by Claudio Quintarelli.
Erik Buell – EBR Motorcycles:” More than three decades of racing, engineering, and manufacturing experience goes into every EBR motorcycle. The EBR 1190RX has some very unique engineering technology, and how to optimize this for each race series is something that takes time to learn. With the winter testing ban in effect until January, 2014, we will have to wait until pre-season testing recommences to see where we are in terms of current pace and performance. Nobody is expecting podiums, but one thing can be guaranteed, we will be hard at work learning and improving.
When the contenders for the 2014 World Superbike crown line up on the grid for round 1 in Australia, be assured our riders Geoff and Aaron, along with all of our team personnel and sponsors are intent on the long term success. We are confident EBR will bring a fun and exciting story to the series, and know the results will come. Team Hero EBR are proud to field the first American motorcycle to contest the World Superbike championship and proud to have 2 American riders to help us. “
