MURRIETA, CA – (Motor Sports Newswire) – KTM Motorsports is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Waters Autobody/Project K Racing for the 2012 AMA Pro Flat Track race season in the Expert Twins division. The current team riders are Jeremy Higgins and Steve Murray.
Team owners, Dave and Rhonda Waters, have been working diligently to establish a KTM presence in the realm of flat track racing since the team’s inception in 2008. Being a fledging privateer team among so many well established has proven to be a challenge, but with KTM’s assistance, Waters is confident that the durability and performance of the LC8 motors will be a key factor in the quest for the Grand National Championship. The water-cooled, 4-stroke, 75° V-Twin arrangement is used in the 2012 990 Adventure, 990 Adventure R and 990 Supermoto T.
New York native and team rider, Jeremy Higgins, has been instrumental in developing the flat track machines for the past several years. He is joined by seasoned veteran Steve Murray from Kansas City, MI. Murray has the knowledge and experience to provide necessary feedback to further develop the LC8 powered machines. Dealership support will be provided by Scott PowerSports, Inc. from Coopersburg, PA.
Brad Hagi, Vice President of Sales for KTM North America, Inc. remarked, “KTM is very excited to work with the Waters Autobody/Project K Racing Team this season. We see the amount of hard work they put into creating a successful flat track racing team and we are happy we can help assist their program and are proud to be a key sponsor to their 2012 racing efforts.”
The Waters Autobody/Project K Racing Team will make its 2012 debut at the first AMA Pro Flat Track Expert Twins round at the famed Springfield Mile at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on May 27, 2012.
