Aprilia USA announces 2006 AMA Flat Track Team and sponsorship.

Following recent successful tests aboard their latest generation AMA Flattrack machine, Aprilia USA is proud to announce that Lloyd Brother Motorsports, Inc will field Aprilia V990-powered machines in the 2006 AMA Flat Track season. The primary rider for the team will be Henry Wiles of Blanchard, Michigan competing in mile and half-mile venues.

"Flat Track is a classic racing series in the US," says Mike Kull, Vice President of Marketing for Aprilia USA, "To see Aprilia, a brand with a long established tradition of racing, fight for an American championship is a very proud moment indeed. We encourage all Aprilia fans to attend the races and cheer on their team."

"We are very happy to support the Lloyd Brothers in their continuing efforts towards success in the AMA Flat Track Championship," Says Robert Pandya, Aprilia USA Off-Road Product Manager. "The Lloyd Brothers are truly the spirit of the sport and have challenged conventional and new Flat Track machines with their design."

Henry Wiles will pilot the machine. "From the first time I tested the bike I know that David and Michael were on to something - the power is great, but the control is phenomenal. It's cool to be on a different machine from the rest of the field, and I know that the fans appreciate the effort," says Wiles.

The Aprilia USA / Lloyd Brothers Motorsports will be touring the AMA half- and full-mile circuits totaling thirteen events this season. The team will be supported by the Aprilia USA rig at all mile events and select half mile events. Product sponsors already signed on are Komodo Leathers, Leo Vince Exhaust systems K&N Filters, Motion Pro Tools and Cables, and Spectro Oils. Additional sponsors are being sought for what will surely be one of the most interesting teams in the 2006 AMA Flat Track season.

The schedule for the season can be viewed at www.amaflattrack.com. those interested in Flattrack racing can learn more about the Lloyd Brothers effort at www.flattrack.com, a web presence that has been very supportive of the effort since its beginning.

It's very good news...at the 1/2 mile/mile level flattrack has been missing other makes...and it's been killing the fun...Triumph has reentered, Suzuki has a full factory effort, J.R. Schnabel is reportedly running a Yamaha on the miles this year and KTM has at least gotten a start in the 450 single class...more makes = more interesting competition.
