Craig Anderson Racing switches to Yamaha with two new riders

Posted:

The 2012 race season will see some big changes at the Berry Sweet Lucas Oil race team with team principle Craig 'Ando' Anderson announcing a new partnership with Yamaha and the signing of Luke Arbon and Louis Calvin to take on the Lites and Open classes respectively while Ando again lines-up in the Opens on the number 100 machine.

"This is a huge moment for the team and it shows that we're still moving forward and growing strong, " Anderson said.

"Having Yamaha come on-board is such a positive thing. I've achieved a lot in my career on the blue bikes with my best year ever coming on a Yamaha. I've ridden the 2012 YZ450F and love it already so it's a bit like coming home," the Multiple Australian Champion added.

"Also, with the support from Berry Sweet Strawberry farms and Dak Wal Engineering increasing this year we've got a strong base to work from and that's the toughest challenge for most teams."

On the signing of Luke Arbon and Louis Calvin, Anderson continued, "This makes us a title chance in multiple classes. Both Luke and Louis are stars of the future and I'm excited to have the chance to help guide them along the way. Just talking about the Berry Sweet Lucas Oil Yamaha race team and the fact that Luke and Louis are signed makes me want to go racing right now."

The team also recently acquired a new, larger workshop fitted out with a gym, kitchen and conference room.

"We'll be better equipped and prepared for the coming season than ever before. With the new workshop and gym and two private tracks for testing we have the infrastructure. With Yamaha with have the bikes and with me, Luke Arbon and Louis Calvin we have the riders to make 2012 the best year yet for the Berry Sweet Lucas Oil Yamaha race team," concluded Ando.
