Attack Performance to to wildcard in all three MotoGP US rounds

Just like GPTech, Attack Performance Racing has also decided to re-enter their CRT machine and wildcard in the three US rounds of the 2013 MotoGP World Championship at Austin, Laguna Seca and Indianapolis.
APR’s Kawasaki ZX-10R based CRT (with CNC frame) saw the light in a little under three months and had only two hours of tests at Buttonwillow Raceway Park before debuting in this year’s Laguna Seca round – but the fledgling machine had fuel pump issues during qualifying which stopped Steve Rapp from meeting the 107% qualifying cut off mark and the team was forced to skip the race.

At month later at the Indianapolis GP, Rapp was not only able to qualify (22nd and ahead of Aaron Yates on GP Techs BCL machine) he finished in 15th place and picked up a point, which probably layed the basis for the 2013 wildcard entries.

Team owner Richard Stanboli has yet to announce the name of the American rider who will be competing in the three races.
