Attack performance announces motogp race effor


American team will compete in U.S. rounds of MotoGP World Championship at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Huntington Beach, California - April 8, 2012 - Attack Performance, manufacturer of precision racing components, has been granted “wild-card” entries for both North American rounds of the 2012 MotoGP World Championship, the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, July 27-29, and the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, August 17-19.

Attack Performance is building a chassis of its own design for the new Claiming Rule Teams (CRT) format at its 10,000-square-foot shop in Huntington Beach, California. The largely CNC- produced, aluminum-framed machine will be powered by a heavily modified Kawasaki ZX-10R- based engine. CRTs are intended to help increase privateer entries in GP racing’s 1000cc premier class and compete alongside teams running factory-built prototypes.

“I’ve wanted to design my own chassis for 10 years,” said team owner Richard Stanboli, “so this new class structure, essentially a Superbike engine housed in a prototype chassis, has provided an ideal opportunity for me. We have a great deal of work to do before the first event at Laguna Seca, but I’m no stranger to 20-hour days.”

Daytona 200 winner Steve Rapp will ride the Attack Performance entry. The AMA Pro Road Racing veteran has earned podium finishes at both Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In March, aboard the privateer Motorcycle SuperStore LeoVince M1 PowerSports Attack Performance AP10, Rapp recorded two top-six placings in the season- opening AMA Pro American SuperBike races at Daytona International Speedway.

“Steve and I work well together,” said Stanboli. “Laguna is a difficult track to learn, and we will have a home-court advantage over some of the other CRT teams. Steve has many laps around Laguna, and we intend to hit the ground running.”

Attack Performance will release more details about the project as it continues to develop.

For partnership opportunities, contact Richard Stanboli at: [email protected].

The CRT rule is cool I guess, but seriously, who cares if there are 20+ bikes on the grid if over half of them havent a snowballs chance in hell of being competitive. They could start the GP bikes on street tires and they would still demolish the CRT teams. It's more like ALMS with the several different classes racing at the same time essentially.
