For 2019, Aussie Dave Racing (ADR) team owner David Anthony has announced that he will field a four-rider team in the MotoAmerica Series.

Anthony, the Australian expatriate who lives in Murrieta, California, and has spent the majority of his motorcycle road racing career in the United States, will be back aboard the #25 FLY Racing Kawasaki ZX-10R in MotoAmerica’s Superbike class.

Joining Anthony again in Superbike for 2019 will be Wenatchee, Washington, rider Sam Verderico, who will race the #17 FLY Racing Yamaha YZF-R1. Also back with the team for 2019 is Roi Holster, who will ride the #26 FLY Racing Yamaha R1 in MotoAmerica Stock 1000.

New to the ADR squad for 2019 is former Supercross rider Bradley Ward, who has made the transition to road racing, will be aboard a FLY Racing Kawasaki ZX-10R and will compete in MotoAmerica’s Stock 1000 class. According to Anthony, “Bradley is a British rider who formerly raced in Supercross until he got hurt. He decided to give road racing a go, and he is quite fast. After seeing how well he did on a 600, I approached him, and we put together a deal for him to race for me in MotoAmerica Stock 1000.”

ADR also welcomes FLY Racing back for 2019 as the team’s title sponsor.

When asked about his off-season testing program, Anthony said that he tries to do as many club races in Southern California as he can. “When you do your testing at club races, you can make money racing while testing at the same time. That’s been my strategy for quite a few years now.”

And that strategy sounds like a good one. Anthony will be in action this weekend at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway in Desert Center, California, for round five of the Chuckwalla Valley Motorcycle Association’s (CVMA) race series.
