The Spanish outfit was created by Ángel Viñales, father of Monster Energy Yamaha MotoGP Team rider Maverick Viñales, and will be running a pair of R3 GYTR-kitted bikes. Their commitment to helping young riders on their first steps towards the pinnacle of motorcycle racing is shared by Yamaha Motor Europe, and the team will now benefit from official support.
Italian youngster Sabatucci is no stranger to the Yamaha family, having raced in the 2019 WorldSSP300 championship with support from the bLU cRU program. The year prior, the 21-year-old took a podium on his debut at Imola, riding a R3 GYTR-kitted bike, with his first victory coming at Donington Park in 2019. Last year, the 21-year-old was a consistent front-runner and scored eight points finishes in WorldSSP300.
For Berta Viñales, Maverick’s cousin, this marks his first foray into the WorldSSP300 championship, having contested the European Talent Cup in 2019 and 2020, where he took a best result of 13th last year in Estoril. The Spaniard will be just 15 years-old when the season gets underway and has already impressed in Spanish national championships during his junior career so far.
