CMR Successes at Phillip Island International Challenge near Melbourne Australia in January 2016 with the US Classic Racing Team

The US Classic Racing Team Captain Dave Crussell approached CMR about building some Yamaha FJ engined and Suzuki GS engined F1-XR69 frame, suspension, fuel tank and exhaust system kits in April of 2015.

CMR took on the challenge, despite the short time frames. The team required the frames ready to build into complete bikes so they could be tested and tuned ready to ship to Australia from Oakland, California on November 2, 2015.

The races took place from January 20th through to the 24th, 2016 and the US Team did very well considering stiff competition from Team UK and Team Australia.

Here are some pictures of the various Team USA racers. The first set of four photos is of USA Team Captain Dave Crussell's big Yamaha FJ.

Some tuning has to be done here and Eirik's thinking about it

Early morning practice. Let's go!

Getting down to the business of racing
Eirik posted the fastest speed  on the back straight at Phillip Island of any of the US Team racers - 276 kph,

The next photos are of Joe Weir, also of Portland, Oregon, and his CMR-framed Suzuki XR69/GS1261 race bike.

Practice at Thunder Hill in California. Joe is really smokin'

Joe built the prettiest bike and raced it very well
Joe's picture-perfect bike captured a lot of attention in the paddock
which is where it resided most of the weekend due to a dropped valve in the engine.
Since Joe had been part of the team for a couple of years, he brought
his #2 bike, his Suzuki Katana. Joe will return to PI in 2017 with renewed vigour.
