Erik Buell Racing Charges Into 2011

Buell News

Erik Buell Racing wants to thank all the supporters, customers, sponsors and suppliers who have helped the new company get quickly on its feet and running hard.

From a cold start-up in the winter of 2010, the company has been able to get into business supplying thousands of orders for parts to support Buell racers and track day riders around the world, build bikes that have won championships in Europe and the US, and now be in the process of preparing to get back into production of a new American sport bike.

Geoff May has piloted the #99 Erik Buell Racing 1125RR Buell to multiple top ten finishes, as high as sixth, in the later part of the season in AMA Pro Racing Superbike.

Geoff May says: “We are going through a huge shakeup in our country. But the American spirit of can do and can help is at its best in times like these.” said Geoff May, who has. It motivates me even more to get the best out of the bike and myself knowing that we have so many fans out there who believe in us.”

May and Erik Buell talk about the supporters who have gone to the www.ebracingteam.com site to donate towards the #99 race team.

Erik Buell says: “There was no question that we had to start work on a new street motorcycle design for 2011, but we also knew we had to go racing at the highest level in 2010. The solution came from suggestions on our social media sites, where race fans told us they would support us directly if we would just set up a site. We could not have made the last four rounds of the series without these contributions, as we simply needed to invest our money into the new motorcycle.”

Erik Buell Racing’s #99 team is also sponsored by Rat Pak Records America, who will be celebrating the season and the future by releasing a video on their site featuring music from Michael Wilton’s new CD behind a fun teaser video on EBR.

Joe O’Brien (Rat Pak Records) says: “The whole race team and fan base for EBR are really fun, full of rock energy, and so we wanted to give them some entertainment.”

The #99 EBR team will finish out the 2010 AMA Pro racing season at Barber Motorsports Park Sept. 24-26.
