The upcoming MotoGP back-to-backs in America see the Attack Performance team make its debut in the World Championship, running a single CRT bike as a wild card entry. Scheduled to compete for the outfit is AMA rider Steve Rapp.
The team is headed up by Richard Stanboli and based in Huntington Beach, California. It submitted its wild card entry in only March this year.
“It has always been a long-term goal of ours to build a real racing motorcycle completely in-house,” Stanboli explains. “In the past years, the AMA has gone away from purebred race machines to a more controlled environment.”
The team owner is aware of the mountain facing his squad, but is open-minded.
“We have no real expectations,” he continues. “I think the building a machine in such a short period of time is an achievement in itself. Just to show up and race a GP is a great goal in itself. Rapp has a lot of track experience and has been on the AMA podium (at both tracks) several times. I do believe we have the home court advantage, to some extent, so we hope we can run with the fastest CRT bikes and see what happens.”
At present, the highest placed CRT rider in the championship is Randy de Puniet, who has scored 28 points and sits 12th overall for Aspar.
