FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 4, 2018

ALTON, Va. — For the Weir Everywhere Racing BMW squad, the 2018 MotoAmerica season has gotten off to a great start. The team showed great pace in a dry Stock 1000 class qualifying session on Saturday, April 14 at Road Atlanta, taking pole by over half a second. The team and rider Travis Wyman followed that up with a wet-weather Stock 1000 class win on Sunday, April 15, by over five seconds.

Tthe team faces another weekend of turbulent weather forecasts at Alton, Va.’s VIRginia International Raceway. The track features a balance of flowing twisty sections with a long front straight that is sure to suit the power and excellent handling of the team’s BMW S 1000 RR motorcycle. Even with the uncertain weather conditions, VIR is a favorite track of Wyman’s, and the team’s established success in both wet and dry conditions gives them confidence heading into this weekend’s event.

The team has also added some new sponsors since their opening-round win three weeks ago, and would like to welcome Full Spectrum Power, Maxem Motorsports, and Superlite Sprockets as new marketing partners for its 2018 MotoAmerica season. Additional marketing partnership opportunities remain available. Brand managers and business owners who are interested in sponsoring Weir Everywhere Racing BMW can contact Travis Wyman at twyman33@gmail.com.

Travis Wyman, rider for Weir Everywhere Racing, said, “The year started off about as well as it could have. After our success at Road Atlanta, we have confidence going into this weekend that we as a team can handle whatever the weather throws at us. VIR is one my favorite tracks, and I am really looking forward to getting our BMW S 1000 RR out on track. The surface at VIR is very similar to that of Road Atlanta, so that’s another positive for us in terms of setting up the bike and tire choice. I’ve had a handful of podiums at this track, but am looking to add another win to my racing resume this weekend.”

Steve Weir, crew chief for Weir Everywhere Racing, said, “VIR is a great track for the BMW package we are campaigning this year. The track’s mix of technical sections and its long straightaway really suits our package. We are continuing to grow as a team and we are giving Travis what he needs to go even faster on the BMW. We got some really good information about the bike’s wet weather performance from the race at Road Atlanta, and are ready to be at the front in whatever conditions mother nature throws at us.”
