Eastside MotoSports Sponsors #29 Amber Rimes
By D.Murrey

Eastside MotoSports is pleased to announce that we have come to an agreement with Amber Rimes of D & B Custom Racing in order to add a second Ducati rider to our energetic motorcycle road racing line up. Amber, #29 will be riding a 2006 749R along side WMRRA's #4 plate holder, Darren Murrey of DMD Racing. In 2005 Amber graduated from Novice and entered into the expert ranks with a convincing drive to be competitive. With only limited track time on a 2001 Ducati 748 she was able to prove her riding abilities as strong and consistent, with many top 10 finishes. 2006 will be an exciting season for the D&B Custom rider who will race the new 2006 Ducati
749R prepared and maintained by local Ducati mechanical sensation, Mark Appleby, of Mach Speed. Mark is a seasoned racing mechanic with expertise in building V-twin power plants and providing track-side assistance. Along with the skilled and proven support from Eastside Moto-Sports, Amber will receive continued support from Eurocorsa Performance, Cycle Cat and Zard
Exhaust Systems. Amber has also been working with recommendations from Eurocorsa to secure sponsorship with STM Italy, Regina Chains, PBR Sprockets and MRA Windscreens for 2006. Amber Rimes will be a fierce competitor in the upcoming season, challenging for top positions in Formula Thunder and Open GP Twin classes. "I'm very excited to be part of something as big as this, I have been working very hard in securing
sponsorship for the upcoming season, since Aug 2005. Now everything seems to be coming together, with the help of Eastside MotoSports and a large amount of Ducati contingency money available we are headed into a very exciting year. I am looking forward to campaigning the new Ducati 749R, it is a beautiful machine. It will be amazing for me to be able to work along side
Darren Murrey, the top Ducati racer in the Northwest." said D&B's Rider Amber Rimes. "Eastside MotoSports is very excited to add such an enthusiastic road racer to our team. Amber has proven to gain respect on the track along with good attention for being a role model to aspiring young women motorcyclists. We understand the importance of supporting the local racing scene and enjoy being part of building a future for this sport in the Northwest by helping up and coming racers like Amber. We look forward to helping her reach her racing goals while she debuts the new 2006 Ducati 749R." stated Rick Nakagaki, C.O.O. of Eastside MotoSports.

It's great to see Eastside Moto Sports so supportive. Amber seems to be a true 'Ducatisti' through-and-through.

Seeing as she's the only legitimate, paid DOC member of the racing-scene, at least that I'm aware of, she would have been the ideal candidate for the Desmo Northwest sponsorship in my opinion. Whether she holds a 'plate', or not.
