Latus Triumph Unveils Sportbike Livery

2012 AMA Daytona Sportbike

For the 2012 AMA Daytona SportBike Championship, last year’s Daytona 200 winner, Jason DiSalvo, will compete on the Latus Motors Racing Triumph Daytona 675 R.

And the 28-year old of New York was recently at Road Atlanta, unveiling the Triumph 675R in its 2012 livery. Joining DiSalvo was fellow Latus Motors Racing rider Dustin Dominguez, who will compete in the 2012 AMA SuperSport Championship.

George Latus (Owner of Latus Motors Racing) says: “We had a phenomenal reception at Daytona with the Gary Nixon Tribute, and a lot of excitement with Jason nearly winning the 200 (he finished second). Dustin also did an admirable job with a solid top 10 finish in the first race of the year.

“For the rest of the season, both Jason and Dustin will compete in matching Castrol liveries, and we hope the fans are just as enthusiastic about it as we are. We’re off to a good start this year, and we’re looking forward to thanking the fans and our sponsors with strong finishes and, hopefully, some victories.”

Latus says DiSalvo and Dominguez will ride matching Triumph Daytona 675Rs with primary sponsorship from Castrol, GE Capital and FreedomRoad Financial with additional support from FMF Racing, HT Moto, Pilot, Catalyst and other equally important companies for the rest of this racing season.

Jason DiSalvo, who formerly competed as a member of the Triumph factory World SuperSport team, is competing in the Daytona SportBike class aboard a Triumph Daytona 675R and Dustin Dominguez is competing in SuperSport for the second consecutive season after winning Race 1 at Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course last year, Latus says.

Both riders will campaign 2012 Triumph Daytona 675Rs built and tuned by RSRacecraft with support from sponsors that include: FMF Racing, HT Moto, Pilot, SpeedyMoto, Catalyst, Galfer, Pit Bull, Spider Grips, Spiegler, Cox Racing, Ohlins USA, EZ Photobooks, and Electric Visual as well as Castrol, GE Capital, FreedomRoad Financial, Bazzaz, Bickle Tire Warmers, Motion Pro, Evol Technologies, Fox Performance and GoPro.
