Australia’s Jay Wilson will defend his IA1 (450cc) Japanese Motocross Championship with the Yamaha Factory Innovation Racing Team, starting March 30.

Yamaha Racing Japan made the announcement of all their domestic race teams last week where Wilson will continue his multi-faceted role of racing, test riding and rider mentoring for up and coming Japanese riders.

If you follow Wilson on social media, you may have noticed he has been in the US recently and working with the Star Yamaha team.

This will be an ongoing thing as part of his job list is to collaborate with teams around the world in testing and acquiring knowledge to help further the development of the Yamaha YZ range. This also includes Australia and already Jay and the CDR Yamaha team have had several conversations and shared plenty of data on the YZ450F.

Since moving to Japan at the start of the 2022 season, Wilson has now become a two-time Japanese Motocross Champion with the 250 class win in his first year and locking down the 450cc crown in 2023, both in dominating fashion. Hopefully, 2024 will see Jay rack up championship number three.
