Team Rabid Transit Announces the Addition of Sheridan Morais

Team Rabid Transit, powered by RSRacecraft, are happy to announce they have signed Sheridan Morais to their team for 2016. In addition to Brandon Cretu who will be competing in the MotoAmerica Superbike class, Sheridan joins the team and will campaign the Yamaha R1 in the Superstock 1000 class.

Morais made his MotoAmerica debut last year at Road America finishing the weekend on the podium for both races. His disciplined work habits along with the ability to learn the tracks quickly is a combination that secured him multiple podiums and a Superstock 1000 pole position start.

Sheridan Morais commented:

“I am absolutely over the moon and grateful for this opportunity. After thinking that I was not going to be racing in the MotoAmerica championship in 2016, it has all just fallen into place and it feels so good. I am on a bike that I know very well, with people I have grown very close to, and that are very capable of creating a winning environment. I am bike fit, raring to go and keen to meet my new team members for our first test together at COTA.”

Ronnie Saner, RSRacecraft owner & Team Crew Chief stated:

“I look forward to working with Shez again this year as he is always a pleasure to work with and I feel that he will be a great addition to the team both as a competitor as well as a quality teammate to Brandon. I am excited to go back to tracks where he knows the course and can put his head down and ride. I am also very pleased that Sheridan’s deal with RSRacecraft is a two year commitment as I feel multiple years together will only strengthen our long term results. Over the course of the 2015 MotoAmerica season Sheridan’s accurate technical feedback and ability to get up to speed quickly was a huge value to the team.”

Brandon Cretu To Race Full-Time In MotoAmerica Superbike Championship

Seasoned Isle of Man TT and Macau Grand Prix competitor Brandon Cretu will make his debut in the MotoAmerica Supersbikeclass campaigning the entire season aboard a Rabid Transit-sponsored Yamaha YZF-R1.

During the past six years Cretu has been a regular in the international real road races, most notably the Isle of Man TT and Macau Grand Prix. 2016 will mark Cretu’s first full season of professional short circuit competition. In this endeavor, Cretu renews a successful partnership with his previous Macau Grand Prix crew chief Ronnie Saner, owner of RSRacecraft. Together, Saner helped Cretu secure his best ever finish of 20th and personal best lap time around the challenging Guia circuit, in Macau, against some of the best road racing talent in the world.

Brandon Cretu, Team Manager/Rider, commented: “To say I am excited about this year is a massive understatement. I know it will be a challenge as MotoAmerica is full of world-class riders, but I know this will help me step up my riding to a new level.”

Ronnie Saner, Crew Chief, commented: “I had the privilege of working with Brandon in Macau the last few years and quickly saw what a great ambassador he is for the sport. Taking the information we learned working together at the track previously and putting that knowledge to use here in America will surely bring a new level to his growth as a racer.”

Selby “Crash” Jones, Rabid Transit Owner, commented: “Truly, this is a match made in heaven. The way the components of the team have integrated, both professionally and on a personal level, is unusually perfect. Brandon, our senior rider and team manager, is an experienced racer and is excited about this opportunity. Brandon has the skills and dedication required to oversee the team as well as the experience, open friendliness, and enthusiasm necessary to work with developing young riders such as his teammate Eric. I said it before and I’ll say it again, keep your eyes open; we may just be going places in a hurry!”

Stay tuned for more information and updates from the team on their MotoAmerica campaign as well as Cretu’s international racing endeavors. Fans can follow Brandon Cretu on Twitter @brandoncretu for the most current updates.

Houston, TX February 13, 2015.

Aprilia HSBK Racing recently announced the Aprilia USA sponsored effort for the 2015 MotoAmerica season. They are a two rider program with the RSV4 running in the SuperStock 1000 class. Both riders have already undergone rigorous physical tests and training regimens; team testing begins shortly.

Dustin Dominguez will be back with Aprilia HSBK Racing after a strong SuperSport season last year. Dominguez has nearly 30 regional championships, multiple AMA Supersport wins and pole positions, multiple track records and is an established rising talent and top contender for the 2015 season. His strong rapport with the team, impressive results, and ability to give feedback make him a great fit for the Aprilia USA backed team.

Dustin commented, “I am excited to be back with a team that has consistently given me a top notch machine and can help foster my growth as a rider. Being with so much support is where every rider wants to be and now it’s time to put in the hard work and perform. In 2013, I had the opportunity to ride an RSV4 for HSBK at a CMRA race and I set a track record my first weekend on the bike. The RSV4 is the best handling bike I’ve ever been on and I know that it is the bike I need to be at the front of the pack. I’m grateful for the opportunity to take it to the top and for the support of everyone who has made it possible.”

Devon McDonough has also signed and will join the Aprilia HSBK Racing Team for 2015. McDonough, 19, of Portland, Oregon completed the 2014 season with Championships in OMRRA, WERA, and AFM. Devon has been in the sights of the team for several years and in the last eight months has matured into a rider with paramount speed and finesse. His smooth riding style suits RSV4 well. The team at HSBK Aprilia is looking forward to working with this young rider to continue developing his talents and are eager to see what results are on the horizon for the up-and-coming star.

When asked about his ride McDonough stated, “I have the incredible opportunity to ride for the Aprilia HSBK Racing team. I have to thank Bobby and the whole Aprilia HSBK team for welcoming me. I am looking forward to riding with them soon and working with them throughout season. This is a great step forward in my racing career and I look forward to continuing the momentum I built last year with this new team. I had an opportunity to visit the race shop and see what Ronnie Saner and his team are doing with the bikes and was blown away by the quality of the RSV4. With their knowledge and experience, it is going to be a great year. A great thanks to all who have helped me make this possible. Looking forward to getting out on the track in 2015!!”

For the 2015 season, Aprilia HSBK Racing has contracted Ronnie Saner, of RSRacecraft, as crewchief. RSRacecraft will help with engine development and technical services. Last season they proved to be critical to the team’s success. In addition, Ronnie Saner has worked with Aprilia HSBK Rider, Dustin Dominguez, for a number of seasons and several manufacturers and plans to bring the same success to the Aprila HSBK Racing team.

“I believe in our bikes, crew, and riders and know that they will be able to bring the results we are expecting. We have been campaigning to run the Aprilia RSV4 for three seasons and it’s great to see the hard work pay off and to have built such a great support network in the process. Our riders boast impressive resumes and have a wealth of untapped potential. I can’t wait to see what the season has in store. ” Team Principal, Bobby Shek.
