Accomplished off road racer, Stefan Granquist, will join Josh Green and Tom McCormack to make a three man team fielded by Active8 Yamaha in this year‰Ûªs AORC and A4DE.
Granquist will compete on the Yamaha WR450F in the E2 class, giving Active8 Yamaha a legitimate chance in all three national classes contested in Australian Off Road championships.
Granquist has been a strong and consistent racer since arriving in Australia several years ago and is a regular visitor to the podium in recent seasons. These results haven‰Ûªt gone unnoticed by team manager AJ Roberts and he has rewarded Granquist with the factory assisted ride for 2014.
‰ÛÏStefan is a real warrior in the off road world and battles on relentlessly in all situations and conditions," Roberts explained. "He has been a loyal Yamaha rider and was the perfect fit for our team as we needed to fill the vacant E2 seat.
‰ÛÏStefan will bring some valuable experience to the team and I believe he will be a serious contender as the year unfolds,‰Ûª AJ explains.
Granquist is excited by the new ride and working with an established team like Active8 Yamaha can only enhance his results.
‰ÛÏThe step up in support from AJ and the Active8 Yamaha team has been amazing,‰Û
