Team aiming to gain valuable set-up data, boost on-track performance at MotoAmerica Championship of Utah
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 19, 2018
TOOELE, Utah — The Omega Moto team has arrived at Utah Motorsports Campus in Tooele, Utah, and is ready to compete in the MotoAmerica Championship of Utah July 20-22. The event will be the team’s first time racing with new rider Geoff May aboard its Yamaha YZF-R1 package. The veteran rider is expected to use his experience, proven talent and industry connections to quickly improve team’s on-track results. The team will use the weekend to gather important data that will help it perfect its bike’s set up for May’s riding style and thereby become a stronger contender in MotoAmerica’s Superbike Class.
Prior to joining the Omega Moto team, May had been racking up wins at Championship Cup Series/American Sportbike Racing Association events and narrowly missed out on a podium-finish at the 2018 AMA/ASRA-sanctioned Daytona 200. May’s resume also includes racing for the former Michael Jordan Motorsports team, as well as experience racing in the Superbike World Championship.
The weekend’s action will take place on Utah Motorsports Campus’ fast and flowing, 3.06-mile track. May has ample experience and good memories racing at the former Miller Motorsports Park, which was the scene of his first win in American professional motorcycle road racing in 2008.
Geoff May / #99
“I am really excited to make my return to MotoAmerica Superbike competition with the Omega Moto team at Utah Motorsports Campus. The track has always been special to me and was the place where I got my first win in professional road racing. I am feeling really confident about this weekend and would like to thank Ken Chewey for giving me the opportunity to join the team. I would also like to thank Michael Godin from KWS Motorsports for filling in as my crew chief on short notice..”
Ken Chewey / Team Principal
“This weekend at Utah Motorsports Campus will be the team’s first time working with our new rider Geoff May and I am looking forward to getting this collaboration started. He is a proven competitor and his experience is an invaluable component to our team’s continued growth and development. May’s past success at this track will hopefully allow us to get our Yamaha R1 dialed in for him quickly. We are aiming for a strong second half of the 2018 MotoAmerica season with a rider of May’s caliber aboard our bike..”
