Raising the Bar: Defending the WorldSBK Triple Crown in 2022

Raising the Bar: Defending the WorldSBK Triple Crown in 2022

Yamaha enjoyed a dominant 2021 FIM Superbike World Championship campaign, lifting the riders’, teams’ and manufacturers’ titles for the ‘Triple Crown’, alongside the awards for Best Independent Team and Rider, and the Rookie of the Year.

Despite this unprecedented success, Yamaha were already busy developing the 2022 R1 WorldSBK well before Toprak Razgatlıoğlu lifted the world championship trophy in Indonesia, knowing full well that they needed to raise the bar this season if they were going to defend the Triple Crown from some very motivated rivals.

Yamaha's WorldSBK riders, Pata Yamaha with Brixx WorldSBK’s Razgatlıoğlu and Andrea Locatelli, and GYTR GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team’s Garrett Gerloff and Kohta Nozane, all head into 2022 off the back of very different 2021 seasons. 

For Razgatlıoğlu the goal is simple, to defend his crown and keep the #1, while the others are looking to deny the Turkish star a second successive title, as they target the top of the championship standings themselves.

Now, the countdown to the WorldSBK season is almost over, and the race to become world champion in 2022 is sure to be more exciting than ever.
