Larry Pegram and the Pegram racing team announced today that they will not be continuing their partnership with Ducati. Foremost Insurance / Pegram Racing have been part of the Ducati family since 2006, but have regrettably announced that they will not be using the Italian manufacturer during the 2011 AMA Superbike season.
Here is the press release from Foremost Insurance / Pegram Racing.
Foremost Insurance / Pegram Racing would like to express their sincere appreciation to all Ducati riders and fans who have supported the team with their positive thoughts, well wishes and cheers over the last several seasons. Without such a strong, enthusiastic base of supporters cheering on the team, it would have been much more difficult to find that little extra to put Larry on top of the Superbike podium many times in 2009 and 2010.
“I truly appreciate each and every fan who came to the races to cheer on the team”, stated Larry Pegram. “Ducatisti are very enthusiastic about racing and that really helped our good races become great races.”
“I am very proud of the results that Foremost Insurance / Pegram Racing achieved for Ducati and I am very appreciative of the support they gave the team, especially Michael Lock and the employees of Ducati North America and Corse,” continued Pegram. “It is with a very heavy heart, that I announce we will be unable to continue racing with the brand in 2011.”
Pegram Racing is expected to announce its plans for the 2011 season sometime next week.
