This weekend the team will show their respects by running two custom sets of graphics designed by SK Designs director Sam Morton and team owner Yarrive Konsky.

The second kit will be similar to the team’s current kit. As representatives of Honda Racing the team wants to maintain Honda’s primary red colours.
“FLY Racing has been a partner of our program for 7 years and we appreciate their willingness to support our championship pursuit’s in Australia and America. Their devotion to Military appreciation week is evident in the riding gear they have created for all of their riders to wear this weekend”. Said Konsky.
The team has been working hard this week on and off the bike. Testing and training has gone well and the team aim to challenge for more top 5 finishes. Mitchell Oldenburg believes the team is capable of place on the podium but may not be racing following a crash on Wednesday. The team will make a decision in the morning.
“This week has been great, accept for a small crash I had; the team has also done a great job in showing their appreciation for the military. Last week we showed that we have the bikes and speed to race upfront. I know Luke and I are capable to challenge for a position on the podium and that’s what we are chasing, I am just not 100 percent sure I will be racing” concluded Oldenburg.
