The 2023 Liqui Moly Beta Racing Team

The team returns six riders from the 2022 team and welcomes one newcomer.

The Liqui Moly Beta racing team is ready to start its 2023 campaign. The team returns six riders from the 2022 team and welcomes one newcomer. The team will be outfitted with Pirelli tires as the company comes on board as multi-year sponsor beginning in 2023.

The West Coast team remained unchanged. Joe Wasson, who finished second in the National Hare and Hound (NHHA) points, returns to the team and will continue riding a Factory 480 RR in the NHHA and the West Hare Scrambles series. Also returning to the team is Zane Roberts, who rides the Factory 480 RR as well in the NHHA and the West Hare Scrambles. Roberts had 11 podiums last year between the two series. Back for his second year as a factory rider for Beta USA is Dare DeMartile. Dare competes in the World Off-Road Championship Series (WORCS) and National Grand Prix Championship (NGPC) series. DeMartile found the podium six times last year.

The East Coast team returns three riders to the factory team. Jonathan Johnson is one of the returning riders for the east team. He competes in the XC2 class at the Grand National Cross Country (GNCC) aboard a Factory 250 RR. Johnson will also look to continue his success in the NE Pro2 class at the National Enduro. Last year he found the podium six times in the series. Again joining Johnson on the team is Evan Smith, who also competes in the GNCC XC2 class on the Factory 250 RR. Smith will also race in the National Enduro in the NE Pro1 class. Smith had 15 top-10 finishes between the two series last year. Rounding out the GNCC riders is Jason Lipscomb. Lipscomb, who found his rhythm last season with four podiums in the last five rounds will hope to carry that momentum as he battles in the XC3 class on a Factory 125 RR.

The newcomer to the team is Danny Lewis. He will compete in the U.S. Hard Enduro Series for Beta as well as the EnduroX on a Factory 300 RR. Lewis found the podium last year at the Hard Enduro series and will work to do so again in 2023.

“Our 2023 team returns the majority of our riders from last year. We are looking to build upon results from last season and have the race bikes and team to do so. In the west, our veteran guys can win any race they enter. And the east team has the talent and gained experience from last year to race at the top. I’m excited for the season to get underway,” said Carlen Gardner, race team manager.
