DESERT CENTER, Cali., February 26, 2018– In only their second weekend of racing, MotoAmerica veteran Travis Wyman and Weir Everywhere Racing showed strong pace and consistent improvement at this past weekend’s Chuckwalla Valley Motorcycle Association Winter Series event. Wyman was able to put the Weir Everywhere Racing BMW S1000RR on the podium twice while finishing no lower than fifth in all five races the team entered.
Despite having limited practice time on a track Wyman had only raced in the opposite direction, Wyman’s lap times began dropping almost immediately on Saturday. During Saturday’s racing action, Wyman piloted the Weir Everywhere Racing BMW to a third-place finish in the SuperSport Open Expert class. In the four-lap Formula Open class race, Wyman started last on the grid and battled through 10 riders to score a fifth-place finish. Working with Crew Chief Steve Weir and Lenny Albin from K-Tech Suspension, Wyman consistently dropped his lap times by nearly a second every time he hit the track Saturday.
On Sunday, Wyman continued working closely with his team and saw similar improvements in his lap times. Wyman finished fourth in Sunday’s SuperSport Open Expert class race, as well as the 10-lap CVMA Shootout. In Formula Open, Wyman rounded out the day by battling through the field to take a hard-fought second-place. Wyman found himself continuing to drop his lap times by almost a second per lap on Sunday.
Additional information concerning Wyman/Weir Everywhere Racing’s plans for the 2018 season will be announced soon.
Travis Wyman, Rider for Weir Everywhere Racing, said, “I am very pleased with the results the team and I were able to achieve this weekend. I only got six laps of practice in on Saturday morning, and I had never raced this circuit clockwise before. Despite being at a disadvantage to our competition, the team really came together and showed what we are capable of. We made consistent progress every time we went out on track. Steve’s knowledge of the bike and Lenny Albin’s suspension expertise really helped us get the bike dialed in. For only having two weekends of racing under our belt, I could not be happier with how far the team has come. I also want to give a big shout out to my dad, Bob Wyman, who flew out here from Rochester, N.Y. to help us out this weekend. I am really looking forward to continuing to develop this BMW S1000RR, and am looking forward to announcing our plans for the 2018 season very soon.”
Steve Weir, Crew Chief for Weir Everywhere Racing, said, “It was another amazing weekend with Travis and the team. We were able to fulfill all the goals I set out for us this weekend, thanks to a maximum effort from everyone involved. That kind of cohesiveness allowed us to produce big results this weekend within a minimal time frame. In the end, we are walking away with two podiums, BMW Race Contingency winnings and a team that is truly realizing its potential. We have also obtained some new sponsors that really added to our package this weekend. SBS is providing some of the most heat-friendly brake pads I have ever encountered, and Evol Technology jumped in to produce a one-off set of rear sets for our BMW S1000RR. We will continue working with Evol Technology to develop their rear sets throughout the 2018 season. We are looking forward to releasing more information about our 2018 program in the very near future.”
