Scott Keegan, from New South Wales, also joins Yamaha for 2016 and is motivated by the move to the E1 division, a class he has had success with in the past finishing second in the E1 championship in 2014.
Keegan has proven to be a consistent campaigner in Australian Off Road racing but the move to Yamaha has him refreshed for the 2016 season.
‰ÛÏYamaha has been extremely successful in the E1 class over the past few years winning several championships in the hands of Tom McCormack and Josh Green, so I‰Ûªm confident I‰Ûªm on the right bike." Keegan said.
‰ÛÏI have been on the WR250F for a few weeks now and I‰Ûªm impressed with its performance straight out of the crate. It will only take a few personal tweaks to the bike and I will be ready to go.
‰ÛÏI thank Yamaha Australia for this opportunity and look forward to working with a company that is excited to go racing and I hope to keep their winning tradition alive in the E1 class,‰Û
