CRG Australia Signs Greenbury Brothers
It was announced last week that Tyler Greenbury had switched to CRG for the remainder of the CIK Stars of Karting season, and that he was jetting off to Italy to take in a round of the WSK Euro series driving for the CRG factory.
But there is more to the deal than that.
CRG Australia has, in fact, signed both of the Greenbury brothers. On track, Tyler will race the black Italian machines, while off track, older brother Matt will open a new retail store aligned with the CRG brand under his G-Force Racing banner.
After some initial testing, Tyler’s first real hit out piloting the CRG will be at round three of the 2012 CIK Stars of Karting Series to be held at Ipswich in Queensland where he will continue to work at defending his title.
He'll then be off to Italy for the WSK Euro Series round at La Conca on June 22-24.

“CRG is one of the world’s most successful brands in our sport and I’m really excited about what the future holds,” Tyler said.
“G-Force Karting is delighted to have CRG on board" Matt stated. "They are a proven brand, bring a lot to the table and will add to our range of products perfectly.”
Matt is currently searching for suitable premises (south of Brisbane) to open the new retail facility. "With Tyler joining me at G-Force to help run the shop and also to assist me with expanding our driver training and pit crew services, I’m very excited about the future.”
CRG Australia’s Chris Dell is equally excited about the new partnership and hopes not only to keep the great results coming on track but just as importantly is keen to see the brand grow further in Queensland.
“We’re very excited to have Tyler and Matt on board joining us at CRG, they are both extremely good operators in their own right and we are definitely looking forward to working with them in the near future and beyond,” said Dell.

“The brothers make a real good team, Matt is a very professional operator and he is the perfect fit for us. We have been looking to expand our dealer network in the Brisbane region and Matt was looking to expand his business into a retail shop so this really works out well.
“Having Tyler join us on the track is great, I have been watching him mature as a driver over the years and I think he brings a lot to the table.
“I think the opportunity for him to head over to Italy and join forces with an elite team with all the best gear and factory mechanics will be a fantastic opportunity for him. It will be a great chance not only for him to show them what he can do but on the other hand to also learn a lot a the same time.”
