Claudio Quintarelli of QB Racing, a Co-Coordinator along with Pegram Racing of the 2015 Team Hero EBR World Superbike squad, recently released a statement expressing his disappointment with events following the team’s exit from the series. Among the issues cited, Quintarelli claims that some of his personal materials were taken along with EBR’s property, which needed to be turned over to the bank as part of EBR going into receivership. Soon after Quintarelli’s statement was released, Pegram Racing distributed a press release of its own that refutes Quintarelli’s accusations. The full Pegram Racing release is included below. – MotoUSAPegram Racing would like to make a brief statement on the inflammatory and false release distributed by Mr. Claudio Quintarelli of QB racing. Although it is not our intent to start conversation only make a statement and be done.

Pegram Racing was hired by EBR to turn around the dismal performances of the previous years team. We did this and were accomplishing great things this season . All in involved including Mr.Quintarelli (travel, shipping, and hospitality) were doing a great job. Unfortunately EBR filed for bankruptcy and we all are now experiencing great loss. None more than the dedicated employees of EBR and Pegram Racing. Our concerns are with all who are now struggling from this including Pegram Racing crew and EBR staff. To try to make accusations or assess blame is useless as Pegram Racing would be racing this weekend and the remainder of the season if not for the bankruptcy of EBR. Pegram Racing would also like to say that only property of Pegram Racing and or property that they were responsible for, was returned to the USA. Nothing of Mr.Quintarelli’s was removed. We again want to thank all involved with the team this year as the failure to continue was certainly not from anyones lack of hard work, only the financial decisions of EBR and Hero Motor Corp.
