Pure Attitude Racing Team
About the Team
Pure Attitude Racing enter the 2023 season confident of achieving their best on-track results since the team began in 2015.
A meteoric rise from small Junior Cup team, that brought podium success, Pure Attitude Racing has developed in recent years, becoming one of the most recognised teams in the MotoAmerica paddock, with a media following on par with many leading Superbike entries.
Competing as a manufacturer supported team in the Twins Cup category for 2022, Pure Attitude Racing embarked on year two of a five-year plan that saw them further expand – the ultimate goal to win the MotoAmerica Superbike Championship. In addition to Twins Cup, they also competed in the Junior Cup.
Pure Attitude Racing continue to run their ‘Academy’ program. Launched in 2019, the Pure Attitude Racing Academy (PARA) provides young riders the opportunity to work within a professional team environment. Riders are given both on and off-track coaching which not only helps them to develop their race craft but also supports them when it comes to dealing with media and fans, something that is as equally important in the racing world today.
