AMA Supersport: Kerr Signs with EBC

2011 AMA Supersport

AMA Pro Supersport rider Ryan Kerr is pleased to announce that he has signed an agreement with EBC Brakes for the 2011 season.

Garry Gallagher (EBC Brakes US Tech and Racing Representative) says: "We are really pleased to welcome Ryan Kerr to the 2011 EBC Brakes Roadrace Support Program. We are really excited to have a young, aggressive racer like Ryan running our Extreme Pro US Made, Sintered Ceramic Roadrace Compound Pads at the AMA Nationals."

Opening their doors in 1978, EBC Brakes has grown from an importer distributing products from a single van to a multi-national company employing over 400 staff with manufacturing in three countries and worldwide sales in excess of $100 million.

The product range comprises brake discs and disc brake pads for motorcycles, all terrain vehicles (ATV or Quads), mountain bikes, go karts (or shifter karts) and automobiles.

Ryan Kerr says: "All of us at Ryan Kerr Racing are very pleased to be working with EBC Brakes. They have an outstanding reputation in the industry and we are excited to be part of their sponsorship program."

Going into his second year of professional road racing, Kerr will again contest AMA Pro Supersport East. A strong, consistent Supersport rider, he ended the 2010 season in eighth place overall.

Ryan Kerr says: "We are really happy to end the year in the top 10. This was my very first year in professional racing and our goal was to finish every race. That’s what we did and our consistency paid off. Now, we are ready for some podium finishes.

In addition to EBC Brakes, AMA Supersport rider Ryan Kerr Racing is sponsored byMJ USA, 614Paintworx, Leo Vince, Arai, Di-Digital Impressions, Woodcraft, KobieC.com, Kawasaki and MJ Motorgear, and Mid-Ohio School.
