The Yamaha R3 bLU cRU European Cup is also supporting six rounds of the European WorldSBK races, including at the TT Circuit Assen. An ideal opportunity for the young riders from the Benelux to see the inner workings of the Cup, which is the next step for them.
Next on the program was a visit to the pit boxes of the Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK team, the GYRT GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team and the Dutch Ten Kate Yamaha WorldSSP Supported Team. Here the youngsters could see the Yamaha R1 and R6 machines up close and experience what happens within the garages to make everything possible. The icing on the cake was when reigning WorldSBK champion Toprak Razgatlioglu, teammate Andrea Locatelli, GYTR GRT Yamaha’s Kohta Nozane and WorldSSP title-winner Dominique Aegerter came by to get acquainted.
After this special visit, lunch was ready in the Yamaha hospitality to relax and let everything sink in. Razgatlioglu took some time for pictures with some of the young riders before this instructive and impressive day came to an end for the Yamaha R125 Cup powered by KicXstart and Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Cup riders.
