Riders Discount Triumph tests at Grattan Raceway

Riders Discount Triumph Completes Successful Weekend of Testing at Grattan Raceway

Riders Discount Triumph has completed a successful weekend of testing at Grattan Raceway in Belding, Michigan. Joey Pascarella and team owner Brian Gibson, himself a former AMA Pro competitor, spent Saturday and Sunday of the holiday weekend putting a pair of 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R’s through their paces in order to further develop the machines for the remainder of the AMA Daytona Sportbike season. The weekend was an opportunity not only to gather more data on the new bikes, but also to give fellow riders and fans a first hand look at just how capable the 2013 Triumph Daytona 675R is as a track weapon.

“This past weekend’s riding was great,” said Joey Pascarella. “We were all relaxed and having fun, but also working really hard. It was a good atmosphere and we were able to make a ton of progress with the new 2013 Triumph 675R’s as a result. It’s always a great feeling to be able to work and have so much fun at the same time. I am so excited and confident going into Mid-Ohio. I just can’t wait to get back out on track!”

Brian Gibson had this to say: “After being off the bike since competing in the 2012 AMA Supersport race at Road America it definitely felt good to be out on the track again. My body might disagree, but it is wonderful getting out there and twisting the grip on these new 2013 Triumph 675R’s nonetheless. Getting to test with Joey at my home track of Grattan Raceway was great fun. I have many, many laps under my belt there and Joey ended up going very, very quick – and in less than ideal conditions, no less.  I am very satisfied with the results of the test and look forward to improvements at the next AMA round at Mid-Ohio.”
