Australian David Anthony, who has been road racing in the U.S. for a full 10 years, has stepped up his commitment to MotoAmerica and increased his footprint in the paddock for 2018.

Anthony’s team, officially called “FLY Street Racing” with Boise, Idaho-based FLY Racing as his title sponsor, will feature Anthony himself aboard his familiar #25 Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike, along with Roi Holster piloting the #26 Yamaha YZF-R1 Superbike and Sam Verderico also aboard a Yamaha R1 Superbike with his bike carrying the #17.

With a three-rider team, Anthony knew that one team transporter wouldn’t be enough. As a result, he’s currently prepping a second 18-wheeler and will be doubling the size of his paddock space. Currently, there is only one other team in the MotoAmerica paddock that uses two transporters, and Anthony will be the only non-factory team to feature a pair of tractor-trailer setups.

“MotoAmerica is growing a lot, and heading in the right direction,” Anthony said. “I’m fully committed to the series, and so is FLY Street Racing. We’ll have three bikes under our canopies, hopefully, starting with round one of the championship at Road Atlanta next month.”

Anthony added that both he and Holster will be participating in next week’s MotoAmerica Dunlop Official Preseason Test, which will be held at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, on Monday, March 27 and Tuesday, March 28.
