Yamaha Set To Unveil New Race Rig At Queensland Raceway

Posted:

Yamaha Racing with YMI and YMF are set to unveil their all new race rig as well as it will also mark the first time the all new Yamaha R1 will race in Queensland as they compete in round four of the Australasian Superbike Championship this weekend.

Always the benchmark of Australian road racing, the Yamaha Racing Team are set to lift the level even higher as their new and impressive team transporter gets rolled out for the very first time at the home town race of the Brisbane based team.

After an eight month construction period and featuring a state-of-the-art fitout purpose built for racing, the YRT crew will be an imposing sight both on and off the track. Not only does the truck carry the race bikes and parts of team riders Wayne Maxwell, Cru Halliday and Glenn Allerton, it also features a media room / rider lounge and all the modern amenities to make it a home away from home.

‰ÛÏIt‰Ûªs been a long time coming but we are excited to have the rig rolled out at QR and at the home town event for the team,‰Û

On track things are just as impressive for Yamaha Racing with the team winning the previous two rounds with Wayne Maxwell and Cru Halliday behind the handlebars. The current point standings have Wayne Maxwell in second place, Halliday third and Allerton fourth and with more gains found at recent test sessions, the team are expecting another successful weekend.

The new R1 machine has proven to be a very good race bike right from the get go and as the team and the riders learn more about the bike and gain valuable race time, the results show the progress being made. After showing incredible speed at round one, that speed translated to a round win at round two and backed up with another round win at round three.

‰ÛÏLike any new bike, it takes some time for the riders to get a handle on it and also for the team to understand what changes need to be made to suit the circuit and the rider on board,‰Û
