For the 2024 MotoAmerica season, Altus Motorsports will focus its efforts on the Supersport Championship, with a lineup that includes incumbent team member Jaret Nassaney, returning rider Jake Lewis, and newcomer Torin Collins. The announcement was made by George and Janette Nassaney co-owners of Altus Motorsports.

After a challenging 2023 season, the team is entering the new year with renewed vigor, bolstered not only by their impressive lineup of riders aboard Suzuki GSX-R750s, but also by a strong crew, a new team transporter, and a new team strategy that streamlines operations, enhances knowledge, and optimizes parts utilization.

According to George and Janette Nassaney, the 2024 rider lineup is the perfect combination of seasoned experience and promising young talent. Jaret Nassaney, who returns for a third season on the Suzuki GSX-R750, showed remarkable progress two years ago, but he faced challenges in the first half of last year. He regained his momentum by the end of the season, however, and he built a solid foundation for a successful 2024 campaign.

“I can’t wait to get the 2024 season underway,” Jaret Nassaney said. “The Supersport class is going to be highly competitive, and we need to bring our A-game. With Boyd and Murph supporting me, I’m ready for the challenge. It’s exciting to be teammates with The Snake (Jake Lewis) again. 2024 is going to be the best season yet, not just for me but for MotoAmerica, as well!”

Jake Lewis, who won both the Stock 1000 Championship and Superbike Cup for Altus Motorsports in 2021, is reuniting with the team. Lewis, who is well-known for his exceptional skills and positive attitude, will be aboard a Suzuki GSX-R750 in the Supersport class, and he will also provide valuable experience and knowledge to the team.

“I’m thrilled to be back with Altus Motorsports for the 2024 season,” commented Lewis. “After our Stock 1000 Championship, I maintained a close connection with the team. While filling in last year in Supersport was enjoyable, I’m now ready to fully commit with a strong team. It has been ten years since I fought for a Supersport Championship, and I’m determined to give it everything I’ve got.”

In addition, Altus Motorsports is happy to welcome talented, young Canadian rider Torin Collins to the team. Collins, with a racing career spanning from Alberta, Canada, to the U.S., to Europe, has competed in the Junior World Moto3 Championship overseas in recent years. Returning to North America, Collins will compete in the MotoAmerica Supersport class aboard the third Altus Motorsports GSX-R750, bringing a fresh perspective and determination to the team. Torin raced a one-off round at COTA this past season and finished on the podium. He will be a force in 2024!

“I’m super-stoked to take on this new challenge in the MotoAmerica Supersport class with Altus,” said Collins. “As a newcomer to this bike and these tracks, having an experienced team like Altus by my side is crucial. Combining my European experience with the team’s hard work, I believe we’ll be frequent podium contenders this season!”

Janette Nassaney expressed her excitement for the 2024 season, saying, “I am so excited for the team we have put together for this 2024 season. We are determined to be a force this year. Having Jake and Jaret back together will be wonderful as they push and support each other on and off the track. I am happy that Torin brings a fresh perspective and his amazing talent to our team. We have worked really hard to rebuild after our loss last season, but I’m confident that between our amazing crew and riders, we will have a wonderful season in the most competitive class MotoAmerica has seen in years!”

George Nassaney reflected on the previous year’s challenges and expressed optimism for the upcoming season, saying, “Last year was undoubtedly a challenging period for us. However, I’m glad it’s behind us, and I’m sincerely looking forward to 2024. By the end of the previous season, we had rebuilt a solid core crew and added key individuals to our team. Focusing solely on the Supersport class will make a significant difference for us, simplifying our operations. Jake’s presence will elevate our entire team, both on and off the track. Jaret finished the previous season strongly, and I’m excited to witness his performance this year. Furthermore, the addition of Torin ensures that we have three formidable riders on the grid.”
