From a press release issued by Diablo Racing:
Montreal's Diablo Racing is pleased to announce the addition of Chris Peris to their 2006 team line-up. Having competed in forty-two races in 2005, Chris earned his place with the double championship winning team through his obvious perseverance and incredible enthusiasm.
This past season was very successful for Peris Racing. In Canada, Chris participated in only six of the eight Hindle Pro 600 Sport Bike races, yet was able to secure a strong 3rd place finish, including two wins and podiums 100% of the time. In the AMA, Chris showed what he was made of by competing head-to-head with the fastest factory riders in the world placing in the top ten every race with a personal best of 4th in Formula Extreme and a 6th in Supersport.
For the 2006 season, Chris will join veteran number one plate holder Steve Crevier to compete in both 600 Sport Bike and Parts Canada Superbike Championship races. Peris will be on the track at each Canadian round as well as all non-conflicting AMA Superbike and Supersport races throughout the US.
"Knowing that he had other offers on the table, I was delighted to have Chris join our team," said team manager Eddy Brunet. "Our recent success by capturing both number one plates in 2005 demonstrated Diablo's dedication to the sport and it was undoubtedly a factor is Chris' decision to play with the devil."
Engine builder Willie Vass will once again be in charge of building and tuning Chris' sportbikes. Having built the bikes that Chris rode in 2005 will inspire the young rider with confidence. Suspension guru & engineer Dale Rathwell said, "I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Chris; he's a talented rider who can really push the bikes to their limit. With his feedback I'm confident we can tune the chassis and suspension for whatever the Championship demands."
