The Demmery Motorsports team had their first hit out on track at the Official ASBK Test held at Phillip Island on the weekend. New riders Zac Levy and Locky Taylor got their chance to sample the new Yamaha R3’s built for them for the Championship and quickly showed that they will be very competitive in the 2019 season.
Demmery Motorsports Owner Brandon Demmery added “It was a very encouraging test and a great chance to fine tune our bikes and the team. It was very pleasing to see Zac and Locky adapt to the bikes so quickly, as they are different to what they had previously ridden and to also top the time sheet at the end of the day on Saturday with a 1-2 result. Having previously raced against both guys, I knew they would do extremely well on a bike I prepared for them and with the help of the crew that have been on board helping me for a number of years”
Zac Levy, riding with number 87 echoed Brandon’s words “The Demmery Motorsports guys have arguably the most experience in the field working with the Yamaha R3 bikes and it shows. I immediately felt comfortable in the team and on the bike and look forward to working closely with the team and Locky to ensure we get the best results possible in 2019”
Locky riding with number 151 is also excited about the year to come “I was so pleased with how the weekend went and how we bonded as a team. It was the first time a lot of us had met and we all clicked straight away. I am really looking forward to working with Yamaha and the team this year”
“Sunday saw the team and a few other, get a bad batch of fuel. The testing plan we had in place for the weekend was cut short however we are very confident we can push the Yamaha R3 and help the rider’s to run at the front this year” said Bandon
The team want to thank all those sponsors that have helped us get to the test and to run in the 2019 ASBK Supersport and R3 Cup Championships.
