Yamalube/Westby Racing Completes Successful MotoAmerica Test At Circuit of The Americas
Tulsa, OK - March 26, 2016 – Yamalube/Westby Racing and Josh Day, the rider of their #00 Yamaha YZF-R1 Superstock 1000 motorcycle, successfully participated in the MotoAmerica Preseason Test powered by Dunlop Motorcycle Tires, which was held at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX.
Josh, who had never turned a wheel at COTA, acclimated quickly to the 3.426-mile, 20-turn road course, and he and the team tested several sets of Dunlop tires through eight separate 50-minute sessions on track. Overall, Josh ended up in the top ten and was the ninth-fastest rider at the test, turning a quickest lap of 2:11.820.
He was the fastest Superstock 1000 rider on track in the two morning practice sessions on the second day of the test, and the second day-two morning session is the one in which he posted his fastest overall lap.
“I'm really glad with where we finished up here at the COTA test,” Josh commented. “It was good to get some seat time on this track since it was my first time here. I really like the flow of the track, and I cannot wait until race weekend! Our last few tests have gone really well, and I am confident that our momentum will carry over to our race weekends this year. I can’t thank the whole Yamalube/Westby Racing team enough for all the time and effort they’ve put into this off-season to make the bike so much better from where we finished up last year. I'm glad the season is finally here. So, now it’s time to get down to business!”
Yamalube/Westby Racing will return to COTA on April 8-10 for the opening round of the 2016 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing Championship.
