We’ve known Freddy for several years, and we’re long-time customers of Superbike Unlimited, so having them join our team as an official team partner is a natural for us.”
Freddy, owner of Superbike Unlimited, commented, “I’ve always admired the way Westby Racing runs its program, and their success has been undeniable. To be a part of that success is a very exciting prospect for all of us at Superbike Unlimited. The knowledge and feedback they’ve already been providing to us has proven to be invaluable. It’s going to be fantastic seeing some of our in-house products in action, as Mathew Scholtz and the entire Yamalube/Westby Racing team work their magic on the racetrack this year.”
