Holigan Racing is proud to announce the addition of Jim Lewis to the team as Director of R&D. Jim joins the team from White Brothers where he ran R&D the past five years, including overseeing development of exhaust systems for the Honda and Yamaha factory race teams.
¿We are thrilled to continue strengthening our team by bringing Jim aboard,¿ states Michael Holigan. ¿We were originally looking for someone to focus on suspension and were fortunate to find someone that has a superb background in both suspension and engine development.¿
Jim originally came to White Brothers in the early 90¿s on behalf of WP Suspension. Jim ran R&D and production in the suspension department. Prior to that, Jim worked as a mechanic at Factory KTM in both Europe and the USA.
¿We are really pleased to find someone that has a huge base of knowledge about motocross suspension and engines, and also has the real world experience of going to the races every weekend,¿ states Team Manager Lucky Nichols.
¿I¿m ecstatic,¿ comments Jim Lewis. ¿Holigan Racing has such a solid program for the short time they have been on the scene and has a vision to take it to the top. The whole team wants to win and I am pumped to be part of their program.¿
Holigan Racing will be fielding Team BooKoo in the AMA Supercross Series and the AMA Motocross Series in 2006. Riders include David Vuillemin, Steve Boniface and Justin Keeney. The team website is www.HoliganRacing.com.
