Geoff May Finishes Fourth Aboard The #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha R1 In Superstock 1000 Race 2 At Circuit Of The Americas
Austin, TX - April 12, 2015 – With a scant number of laps aboard the #00 Yamalube/Westby Racing Yamaha YZF-R1, rider Geoff May continued his steep learning curve in MotoAmerica Superstock 1000 Race 2 on Sunday at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA).
Geoff improved on his seventh-place finish in Saturday’s Race 1 and finished just off the Superstock 1000 podium in fourth place. The Yamalube/Westby Racing team worked diligently over the past few days to get Geoff comfortable on the new motorcycle, and their efforts paid off. The dry track conditions in Sunday’s race also helped, giving Geoff a more consistent race surface on which to exploit the performance characteristics of the brand-new-for-2015 R1.
Starting from twelfth position on the grid, and the sixth-fastest Superstock 1000 rider in qualifying, Geoff was able to make good progress during the race, which resulted in a respectable fourth-place result.
The Yamalube/Westby Racing team will continue to develop their brand-new R1, and they’re looking forward to returning to action next weekend at the Road Atlanta Superbike Challenge in Braselton, Georgia.
