Royal Enfield To Enter 2021 AFT Competition With Rider Johnny Lewis
Racing Dreams Continue For Johnny Lewis
American Flat Track racing is making a resurgence, and manufacturers are taking note of that. Royal Enfield announced last year that they would be interested in competing in the Production Twin competition with their own Twin 650, and saw some pretty good results during the season. The Indian OEM has confirmed that they will indeed stick around for the 2021 season with Johnny Lewis continuing as their primary rider.
In the previous season, Johnny Lewis and the Moto Anatomy x Royal Enfield team managed to sneak themselves into the mid-pack with a final finishing position of 11th out of the total 28 racers featured in the season.
Breeann Poland, Marketing Lead for R.E. America said “Johnny Lewis has proven to be a valuable development partner and race winner for Royal Enfield..”
“Royal Enfield is excited to solidify its future with Lewis and continue building upon the foundation created in 2020. The 2021 season is not far away, and while there is still work to be done, the team progressed quickly in just a few months, finishing the year with a win and second place in Daytona. We’re thrilled to get back to racing.” she continued.
At the moment, we have no official confirmation from AFT as to when the 2021 season is planned to begin (thanks, COVID). We do know, however, that you can expect Johnny Lewis and the Moto Anatomy x Royal Enfield team at the starting line.
