The Omega Moto team has announced that it has signed South African Cameron Petersen to ride its Yamaha YZF-R1 in the MotoAmerica Superbike class in 2019.
“First of all, I just want to give a massive shout out to Ken (Chewey – team owner) for giving me this amazing opportunity to ride for his team,” Petersen said in a team release. “I’m extremely excited to be working with a team like Omega. I’m looking forward to being able to grow with them as a team and I believe we will be able to accomplish great things in 2019 with the package we have. Now it’s just about the hurry up and wait game for the 2019 season to start, but I can’t wait to swing my leg over the Omega Moto Yamaha R1 and see what we can do with it.”
Petersen rode for the Genuine Broaster Chicken Honda team this season, finishing 12th in the Motul Superbike Championship with a best result of fifth in race one at New Jersey Motorsports Park.
“We are extremely excited announce that Cam Petersen will be riding our Yamaha R1 for entire 2019 MotoAmerica season,” said Omega Moto Team Principal Chewey. “Cam brings a drive and positive mind set to our team, and we are looking forward to working with him. I believe Cam’s hunger and open mindedness are just what we need to move the team forward in terms of our on-track performance.”
Petersen and the team are looking forward to preseason testing in the coming months and look forward to a long relationship. To get all updates throughout winter testing and throughout the 2019 season follow the team on Instagram and Facebook @omegamoto.co
