The Yamaha Racing Heritage Club (YRHC) was formed to safeguard and celebrate the manufacturer's rich racing legacy. That was evident for all to see at the Sachsenring Classic (15-17 July), where they entertained tens of thousands of fans with Yamaha riders past and present. These included 15x World Champion Giacomo Agostini, 1971 125cc & 1973 250cc World Champion Dieter Braun, 1983 250ccc World Champion Christian Sarron, 2000 WorldSPP Champion Jörg Teuchert, 2012 Moto3 World Champion and 2018 WorldSSP Champion Sandro Cortese, plus current Yamalube YART Yamaha Official EWC Team rider Marvin Fritz and more.
There was also a stunning collection of bikes on display, spanning Yamaha’s entire racing history from one of their first factory race bikes, the 1957 YD-A 250cc, all the way up to Fabio Quartararo’s 2021 MotoGP title-winning M1. It was a fantastic event, and you can relive all of the best action from the Sachsenring Classic in the video below.
