VOLUME 58 ISSUE 26 JUNE 29, 2021 P33 Hahn Out, Rarick In As Monster Energy Star/Yamaha Racing Manager T he Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha Team and its 250cc Team Manager Wil Hahn have parted ways by mutual agreement. Seth Rarick will be Hahn's replacement. The team is currently in the process of moving its base camp from Cali- fornia to Florida, but the Califor- nian, Hahn, will be staying put. A release from the team states that after four very successful years, Monster Energy/Star Rac- ing Yamaha would like to extend a thank you and best wishes to 250 Team Manager Wil Hahn as he departs the race team. Hahn, who competed for Star Yamaha as a rider from 2007-2008 and as team manager from 2017- 2021, played an instrumental role in helping the team capture seven championships. "I have enjoyed working with Wil Hahn for the past four seasons and will miss hav- ing him around," said Jeremy Coker, 450 Team Manager, Star Racing. "I'm glad to have Seth [Rarick] back with the program and look forward to helping him grow within the program. He will assist me in the management of this amazing program and hope- fully continue our powerhouse championship-winning path." With Hahn's departure, Seth Rarick will take over the 250 manager position effective im- mediately. Rarick has previously worked with the Star Racing team as an assistant trainer to Gareth Swanepoel and most recently worked with several of the sports top racers at the Bak- ers Factory. As a former profes- sional racer himself, he brings a wide range of knowledge that will be extremely beneficial to the team. "I'm very excited to be back with the Monster Energy/Star/ Yamaha Racing team. I have a much different role this time around, but I'm ecstatic to expand my horizons as well as provide my knowledge and ex- perience to such an established team," said Rarick. "I'm very thankful for the opportunity and everyone here for trusting and believing in me. I need to thank Aldon Baker for being so gra- cious and kind to me when this opportunity came up, as well as Wil Hahn for helping me get caught up to speed so quickly. I'm looking forward to continuing the success that Star has had for so many years!" CN Seth Rarick is the new team manager for the Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha 250cc squad, replacing Wil Hahn.
