Stefano Mesa commented: “On May 16th Roadracing World published an article about my team being in financial trouble and me being without a ride. The out pour of calls and support for me has been overwhelming. Thank you all. I am very grateful to RSRacecraft/EBR team owner Ronnie Saner that he has given me this 'BIG' opportunity to stay on the AMA grid and keep going after the SuperSport Championship. I want to thank my biggest sponsor, MotoSport.com. With Road America on top of us and with such short notice, I know the team is working very hard to do everything possible to have bikes ready."
"I also want to thank Dave Brite and my prior crew. Thank you for believing in me, giving me knowledge and good bikes to go out and win. I'm with you and hope all of this is for the best.” said Mesa.
RSRacecraft owner Ronnie Saner states “We are pleased to partner with MotoSport.com and are looking forward to this new relationship. It would be a shame to see a talented young man like Stefano not be able to continue in 2013, so we are very pleased to offer him a home at RSRacecraft for the remainder of the season. He is a tenacious young talent who brings a lot of excitement and positive energy to the SuperSport grid.”
"MotoSport.com is proud to be partnering with such a skilled and dedicated team as RSRacecraft to take on the AMA Superbike and SuperSport championships.
