R3 Cup rider rewards Entry level race series benefits announced
YMA has announced a range of contingency payments for YZF-R3 Cup competitors.

The payments are aimed as not only a reward for reaching the podium but also as an encouragement for the entry level riders that the new affordable series is designed to attract.

The third placed rider at each round will receive $100 while second place pockets $250 and the winner receives $500.

In addition, a discretionary encouragement award of $75 will be announced by organisers for each race.

The contingencies will be paid to riders competing in the R3 Cup with the next round due to kick off at Sydney Motorsports Park on 16-17 April 2016. So if you are thinking of joining the fun, don‰Ûªt hesitate ‰ÛÒ entries are open now!

Steven Cotterell, Director and General Manager of Yamaha Motor Australia explains the new Yamaha contingency program: ‰ÛÏWe know that racing is expensive so we are offering contingency payments to offset some of that cost. These payment also act as an incentive for riders to make the podium and as a reward for racing with Yamaha and supporting the brand.

"In addition to payments for the top three riders, YMA has introduced a discretionary encouragement award for the R3 Cup because the new series is aimed at entry level participants whose main aim may be to enjoy the experience rather than place in the top three. We anticipate that these contingencies and other R3 Cup prizes totalling $42,000 will entice more riders to join the affordable and fun race series‰Û
