YZF-R125 race series expressions of interest

Posted:

Yamaha Motor Australia intends to launch a one model race series aimed at attracting new riders to road racing and unearthing the next Casey Stoner.

In order to kickstart this concept Yamaha are seeking serious expressions of interest.

The YZF-R125 race series concept is aimed at riders 13 to 15 years old. And unlike other one model series, the playing field is designed to be entirely level and all hassles normally associated with road racing are removed. All you do is turn up and ride.

The race bike will be a modified YZF-R125 ‰ÛÒ developed along the same lines as the Italian R125 Cup series bikes. The concept is that the Australian based Yamaha Racing Devlopment team builds, supports, runs, transports and maintains the race bikes. Riders are only required to supply their own transport, accommodation, evening meals and a mechanically capable helper.

Everything else required for racing - including fuel and one set of Dunlop control tyres per round - is paid for by each rider at the start of the season. The only extra cost would be crash repairs.

A sign on fee provides the rider with a minimum of a five round series (possibly eight rounds) with one full day of practice, one or two qualifying sessions and six races over three days per round. There may also be a pre series test day included.

Anyone seeking more information can email yrd@bigpond.com for details.
