A Good Start for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team today at Phillip Island, with Chaz Davies scoring two third place finishes in these opening races of the 2015 Superbike World Championship season.
Phillip Island (Australia), Sunday 22 February 2015 –

Race 1 – Today’s races took place in hot conditions with track temperatures of 42°C for race one. Davies, from second on the grid, was lying third through the opening stages, right behind Haslam and Rea. This British trio battled it out for the podium positions for the entire duration of the race, passing and re-passing each other in what was a spectacular opening race. Welshman Chaz pushed hard all the way to the line but, struggling to find acceleration through the turns in the final laps, he was unable to get ahead of his rivals, crossing the line in third position. This is an important result both for the team, that opens the season in a positive way, and the rider, who steps up to the Phillip Island podium for the first time in his career.

Bayliss, twelfth on the grid, got away well and was up into seventh place by the second lap. The Australian rider battled with various riders throughout the race, Torres, Guintoli and Sykes included. Unfortunately tyre performance dropped off significantly in the later stages of the race and Troy gradually lost ground as a result. The three-times world champion crossed the line in final thirteenth position.

Race 2 – In race 2, and in very similar conditions, Davies made a strong start, and was up in second by the end of lap one, together with Rea and Haslam, as in race one. On lap two his pace was such as to record the best lap of the race (1’31.725). The Ducati rider was lapping in third/fourth position for a good part of the race and, able to manage the tyre situation effectively, he even took the race lead at one point in the final stages. A fantastic battle to the line ensued, and saw Chaz finish once more on the third step of the podium, earning himself more important points for the championship.

Bayliss made up several positions in the initial stages and was lying eighth through the opening laps. Similarly to race one, he started to suffer from significant tyre wear towards the mid-race point with the situation becoming serious enough for him to return to the garage on lap thirteen for a tyre change. Returning to the track in eighteenth place, he could only do so much in the limited time remaining, finishing his race in sixteenth place.

At the end of the opening round of the 2015 Superbike World Championship, Davies lies third with 32 points, and Troy Bayliss takes 3 points to place nineteenth. In the manufacturer’s championship, Ducati positions third with a total of 32 points.

The next appointment for the Aruba.it Racing – Ducati Superbike Team will be Round 2 of the championship, taking place at the Chang International circuit in Buriram, Thailand over the weekend of 20-22 March.

Quotes after the races:

Chaz Davies (Aruba.it Racing - Ducati Superbike Team #7) – 3rd, 3rd
“I’m finally on the podium at Phillip Island, and twice over - having tried every year to get here, I’ve finally done it. I would have liked to be able to do something more but it wasn’t possible, I was just missing a little more drive in the final laps and tried to conserve the tyres as well as I could. I personally have always started the championship a little badly and so this result is extremely important. It confirms that we are starting at a different level with respect to last year, and I was able to stick there with Rea fairly comfortably. We’re worked hard this weekend, concentrated on race distance, and it seems to have paid off. I thank my whole team but also all of the technicians back at Borgo Panigale for their hard work over the winter. The results obtained here are a good base on which to build.”

Troy Bayliss (Aruba.it Racing - Ducati Superbike Team #21) – 13th, 16th
“I’m feeling a real mix of emotions at the end of the weekend. I came here to have fun, and for the fans and the Phillip Island circuit. I thought that maybe I wouldn’t have the pace to be able to run with these guys anymore but instead I’ve seen that I can still be fast and, if it hadn’t been for the tyre issue, I think I could have done a lot more. So I don’t know, it’s a pity I didn’t have more time on track, and I didn’t have time to train properly ahead of the event of course, but all in all it’s been a really fun weekend, and in many ways it feels like nothing has changed since 2008. I thank Ducati for giving me the opportunity and also all of the fans and ducatisti for their continued support.”

Stefano Cecconi – Team Principal
“I think we can say that the Superbike season has got off to a great start for us here. Chaz was fantastic in both Superpole and today’s races, and his results here demonstrate that all of the work done over the winter is taking us in the right direction. Particular thanks go to Troy, for what he has done - he’s definitely lived up to reputation as a legend. Our thoughts go to Davide of course, and we hope he can be back on the bike as soon as possible.”

MotoAmerica Announces TV Talent
Jonathan Green, Colin Edwards and Cristy Lee Set For CBS Sports Network Shows


We have to give MotoAmerica a lot of credit for coming up with an incredible broadcast lineup for the new 2015 AMA Pro Roadracing season on the easy to access and TiVo CBS Sports HD network. The team includes beautiful, knowledgeable and well spoken Christy Lee from Velocity's All Girl Garage, transplanted Brit Jonathan Green from past seasons excellent coverage of SBK World Superbike on BeiN TV, and former AMA and World Superbike Champion Colin Edwards. Thankfully MotoAmerica did not go back to the former AMA roadracing commentators who bored us to death, the lackluster Greg White, the screaming Ralph Sheheen who only knew enough to tell us "their tires should be going off about this time", and former race champ Scott Russell who's southern drawl required an interpreter to understand.

COSTA MESA, CA, FEB. 26 - MotoAmerica, the new home of AMA Superbike racing, has announced its lineup of talent for CBS Sports Network's coverage of the 2015 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Series. The team will be led by veteran race caller Jonathan Green, who will be joined in the booth by analyst and two-time World Superbike Champion Colin Edwards. Noted motorsports TV personality Cristy Lee will round out the trio as pit reporter for the nine-round series that gets started at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, April 10-12.
 
The team will be led by broadcasting veteran Green, one of the world's leading motorsports broadcasters with more than 20 years in the sport as producer, presenter, reporter and commentator. Green is one of a handful in his field who has covered both two and four-wheel motorsport from Formula One to Moto GP and World Superbikes to Indy Car.
 
"I am honored and excited to be part of this new era for the sport and wholeheartedly believe in what Wayne [Rainey], Chuck [Aksland] and the team are aiming to do over the coming seasons," Green said. "I am delighted to be part of this excellent broadcast team. I've known Colin Edwards his entire career and have covered his World Superbike and Moto GP efforts as a reporter, commentator and presenter. Over the years we've become great friends and he is without doubt the most popular and charismatic racer in the world of motorsport. I can't wait to help bring his insight of the sport that he loves so much to the fans.
 
"I've also worked with Cristy Lee many times before and she is a consummate broadcast professional with an unrivaled passion for motorcycles," Green added. "I will be putting all of my well-known energy and enthusiasm into the job of helping making MotoAmerica the best National championship in the world and I can't wait to get started."
 
Edwards has been racing motorcycles since the age of four with a career that started in motocross before the Texan made the move to road racing. After a successful AMA Superbike career, Edwards moved to the world stage where he competed for eight years in World Superbike  - ultimately capturing the World Superbike Championship in 2000 and 2002. Edwards then moved to MotoGP where he had a successful 12-year career at the top level.
 
"I'm very excited for this new adventure with MotoAmerica," Edwards said. "I've always been a little vocal during my career and a big part of that is wanting people to feel like they know who I really am.  Since retiring and looking forward to this new chapter, my plan is to continue being vocal so you all will know what's really going on out there. I've got a little experience in this area and look forward to getting the ball rolling. See ya in COTA."

Lee is a lifelong motorsports enthusiast, an amateur road racer and a broadcaster with 10 years of experience as a pit reporter in motorsports ranging from motocross to off-road trucks to AMA Superbike racing. She is also the host of the Barrett-Jackson auto auctions and the show All-Girls Garage.

"I'm really excited for a new road racing series with MotoAmerica," Lee said. "I'm ecstatic to be part of this new series and be in the pits once again, as I have been for the past couple of years. I think it's a great, fresh start for the series. I'm excited for the new class structure as well with the combination of Superbike and Superstock racing together in two different classes. I think it will bring a lot more exciting racing to the table for the fans. I'm thankful to be on board and working with Jonathan Green and, of course, Colin Edwards. I think we're going to make a great team and overall it will be a great season. I couldn't be happier."

All MotoAmerica events will be telecast on CBS Sports Network, as part of a multi-year agreement between Torque.TV and CBS Sports Network. Extensive digital coverage of the MotoAmerica Series, including event highlights, features and other content will also be featured on www.Torque.TV.   
 
The 2015 television schedule will be released at a later date.

AMA Announces Sporting Rules for MotoAmerica
Finally In-Line with FIM World Superbike Classes and Qualifying
PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association has published the 2015 sporting regulations governing the professional road-racing classes for MotoAmerica, the new home of the AMA Superbike Series.The sporting regulations cover race-day procedures, event operational standards, scheduling conventions and the qualifying process.

"A number of regulations and procedures were adopted from world-championship competition," said AMA Director of Competition Bill Cumbow. "This supports our goal of developing American riders to compete on the international level."

The sporting rules also were designed to create excitement for American road-racing fans. "One element that fans will enjoy is the inclusion of Superpole for qualifying," said MotoAmerica Race Operations Manager Niccole Cox. "Superpole determines the top 20 grid positions in two 15-minute shootout sessions, adding another level of challenge to the Superbike and Superstock 1000 riders. The sporting regulations also allow for two Superbike/Superstock 1000 races on Sunday at select events."

The rules are available at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/racing/roadracing/roadracingrules.aspx.

All-New 2015 Yamaha FJ-09 Offers Unique Blend of
Exciting Performance In A Versatile, Sport Touring Package

The Yamaha FZ-09 has been a huge success, garnering enthusastic praise from riders and the media alike. And now, Yamaha takes the popular FZ-09 sportbike formula and adds even more versatility with the all-new 2015 FJ-09. The FJ-09 utilizes the FZ-09’s crossplane-concept, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, inline-three-cylinder, 847cc, fuel-injected engine in a versatile package that provides a sporty, agile, and comfortable ride for everything from daily commuting, to spirited canyon-carving, to full-on touring.
 
With excellent acceleration, response, and handling characteristics, the FJ-09 offers an upright riding position for a stress-free, comfortable experience, whether riding solo or with a passenger. The FJ-09 sports a whole host of position-adjustable components--including windscreen, handlebars, and seat--designed to further accommodate a wide range of riders and riding preferences. And the large, 4.8-gallon fuel tank enables you to log a lot of miles between fuel stops.
 
In addition, the FJ-09 comes equipped with electronic control technologies that include YCC-T (Yamaha Chip Controlled Throttle), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), and TCS (Traction Control System) to ensure smooth-running performance. And, as if that weren’t enough versatility and adjustability, the bike also features the Yamaha D-MODE (Drive Mode) variable-throttle-control system, which allows the rider to choose the optimum engine character for their riding situation.
 
Yamaha will offer a complete range of custom accessories for the FJ-09, including a top case, side cases, taller windscreen, heated handgrips, and a comfort saddle seat.
 
The 2015 FJ-09 will be available in two color options--Matte Gray and Candy Red--and will retail for $10,490, with bikes available in dealerships beginning in December.
