Former AMA Supercross Series Runner-Up Ready for Canada
AURORA, Ill. (November 22, 2005) ¿ Clear Channel Entertainment`s Motor Sports division announced today that Team BooKoo rider David Vuillemin will race at Vancouver’s B.C. Place Stadium December 10, the second stop of the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP.
Vuillemin, who finished fourth in last year’s AMA Supercross Series, has seven career 250cc main event wins and has finished second place in the AMA Supercross Series twice throughout his career (`00&’02). In 2003, Vuillemin won the opening round of World Supercross GP in Geneva, Switzerland.
“I am really excited to race Vancouver for the first time,” said Vuillemin. “I’ve never been there before! I am also excited to do my first official race with Team BooKoo. I am sure my mechanic, JP Savard, is happy to go race up there (Canada) since he is Canadian. He will take great pride in putting a well-tuned race bike on the line for me and Team BooKoo.”
“We are looking forward to David lining up in Vancouver,” said Team Owner Michael Holigan. “We have been doing a lot of testing with the Honda CR 250, and this will be a great opportunity to see where we are at.”
Additional announcements regarding the starting line-up will be released shortly. To date, the Amp’d Mobile World Supercross GP most notable commitments include: reigning World Supercross GP champion Ricky Carmichael; former World Supercross GP champion Chad Reed; Australian hero Michael Byrne.
