American Racing Moto2’s Team Owner Eitan Butbul: “Luck Sometimes Surprises You…”

Featured In the September 2019 issue of Roadracing World:

        Eitan Butbul has been a fan of motorcycle road racing for decades, traveling from his home in Southern California to MotoGP races in Europe several times a year. But he’s always wanted to do more than just sit in the grandstands. With his business doing well, Butbul reached out to LCR Honda Racing and started providing a modest amount of sponsorship to one of the most highly regarded satellite operations in the MotoGP paddock.

        A few years later, Butbul now owns his own Moto2 team, American Racing Moto2; manages American Joe Roberts, who races for the team; and has his sights on becoming deeply involved in the premier class of the sport.

        “If you told me last year at this time, ‘Next year you’re going to own the team and you’re going to manage it,’ I would have told you, ‘You’re dreaming and I’m dreaming,’ says Butbul, But luck sometimes surprises you.” 

–American Racing Moto2 Team Owner Eitan Butbul, by Michael Gougis

            Eitan Butbul is a consummate Grand Prix racing fan, and he has plans to involve himself in the sport – and to help American riders make their mark on the world stage. Read about his amazing rise to Moto2 team owner and his plans for the future in the September issue of Roadracing World!
