MURRIETA, CA - MotoSport.com and the Aussie Dave Racing Team are thrilled to announce that MotoSport.com has joined with the ADR team to attack two national championship series in 2013. The MotoSport.com/ADR Racing Team will have one team competing in the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross and one campaigning in the 2013 AMA Pro National Guard Superbike Championship.MotoSport.com/ADR Racing will have a full-time team in the highly competitive 2013 Supercross series. Riding for the AMA Supercross contingent will be Ricky Dietrich, Gareth Swanepoel and Australian newcomer Kade Mosig. Swanepoel will ride in the East Lites series, while both Dietrich and Mosig will compete in the West Lites class, and all three will be riding the Kawasaki KX250F. With the experience and enthusiasm this group brings to the table, the MotoSport.com/ADR Racing team is poised for an exciting run in the 2013 Supercross series.
Team owner and manager “Aussie” Dave Anthony will play many roles in 2013; from running and wrenching for the entire MotoSport.com/ADR Racing team in both Monster Energy Supercross and AMA Pro Superbike, to racing a superbike against the best in the AMA Pro Racing series.
In 2013, Anthony will be aboard the Suzuki GSX-R1000 and will wear the number 25. This is his seventh year competing in the series and his goal is as it always has been, to move #25 to the front of the grid and collect championship points. Given that he has mixed it up regularly in both the AMA Pro and British Superbike, look out for Aussie Dave in 2013!
“We are pretty excited about the 2013 racing season,” said an understated Aussie Dave. “I started out riding off-road back in Australia, so the Supercross is something I am happy to be doing this year. We had to put everything together at the last minute. In less than four weeks we managed to gather this incredible team, get the bikes and round up our partners. The Superbike has been ready, but the rest of it was a mad rush. Now, though, everyone has their bike set up, the riders are geared and prepared, and all of our testing is going well. We are amped-up and ready to race!”
Team coordinator and PR manager Rob Pippins has been instrumental in forming this partnership. For seven seasons he has carved and molded the look and feel of Aussie Dave Racing while maintaining the professional image of a top race team. He had this too say about the deal, "I could not be more exited about both seasons for this year. We are always up for the challenge of representing all of our sponsors and loyal fans, but now we get to do it all year long in two paddocks!”
Bill Butcher, CEO and founder of MotoSport.com, stated, “MotoSport.com and Aussie Dave Racing are looking forward to 2013 with great anticipation as we assault two separate championship series simultaneously.” He continued, “Who wouldn’t be excited? The team has a highly-experienced and skilled manager in Anthony, talented riders who ride hard, and well-prepared bikes; with a long schedule encompassing many exciting venues and MotoSport.com behind the team, it is sure to be a very action-packed season for both our teams!”2013 is here and MotoSport.com/ADR Racing is ready for the challenges ahead with experience, dedication and a single-minded desire to race and race well. Come out and watch us contend these two spectacular series and cheer on these talented and deserving riders as they take on the 2013 Monster Energy AMA Supercross and AMA Pro Racing National Guard Superbike Championship.
