The following is from Beta USA:
Beta Factory rider Johnny Aubert will come to the USA and race his Beta USA-prepped 300 RR two stroke in rounds 11 and 12 of the GNCC series in the Elite XC1 class. Aubert is a two-time World Enduro E2 class champion and ISDE overall winner. Aubert resides in France alongside his wife Geraldine and two children.
Aubert will race round 11 on September 25 in Masontown, West Virginia and again the following weekend in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Beta USA President Tim Pilg is looking forward to Aubert joining the team.
“I have been a big fan of Johnny’s and it will be a pleasure to help him here in the states,” Pilg said. “We have a solid team structure, and with Johnny racing a 300 RR two stroke in XC1 [it] should bring some excitement to the results for sure.”
Aubert said he is looking forward to racing in the USA.
“I am very excited and really happy to come and race in America these two races of GNCC!” Aubert said. “I can’t thank enough Beta to give me this opportunity. American GNCC is very famous in Europe and I always had a secret wish to come and take part to this kind of race in the country of motorcycles! See you soon”
Beta USA team manager Zack Huberty added, “We’re excited to welcome Johnny Aubert for the next two GNCCs in West Virginia and Ohio. It’s great to have a veteran of off-road come to the U.S. to race two of the GNCC rounds. Rodney Smith and myself will work closely with Johnny during the two rounds to help him adjust quickly to the format and terrain.”
