VIDEO: Latus Motors Racing And VETMotorsports Create Partnership

In this video, Veteran Empowerment Through Motorsports (VETMotorsports) founder Peter Cline and Latus Motors Racing team owner George Latus discuss their partnership in the 2015 MotoAmerica AMA/FIM North American Road Racing and AMA Pro Flat Track Championships.

Triumph-backed Latus Motors Racing fields Bobby Fong in MotoAmerica Supersport and Brandon Robinson in AMA Pro Flat Track GNC1.

Founded in 2012, VETMotorsports is a non-profit, non-clinical outreach program that embeds qualifying “warfighters” with existing race teams to provide unique motorsports experiences.

Placing veterans in hands-on, high-stress, team environments that mimic active duty gives them direction, empowerment, and challenges, the organization says, that help them focus on ability and moving forward rather than disability and the past.

“I’m a veteran myself,” Latus said. “So if there is a way I can give back in some small way to some of those folks, hey, I’m more than happy, and I’m proud and honored to do so.”

“Our program with Triumph is going to be for the season,” Cline said. “It’s going to be in road race and flat track, so it’s going to give us about 18 national opportunities for outreach across the country.”

Cline was presented with the 2015 AMA Hazel Colb Brighter Image Award at Road Atlanta.

To date, VETMotorsports has helped more than 65 injured veterans participate in 35 motorcycle- and auto-racing events across the US.
