Portalegre to Host 2022 Yamaha YXZ1000R European Cup SuperFinale

Portalegre to Host 2022 Yamaha YXZ1000R European Cup SuperFinale

After the outstanding success of the event in 2021, Yamaha Motor Europe is pleased to announce that the 2022 edition of the Yamaha YXZ1000R European Cup SuperFinale will take place in Portalegre, Portugal on 28-30 October.

The unique SuperFinale event, which brings together YXZ1000R racers from across Europe, will once again run alongside the Baja Portalegre 500, the sixth round of the FIA Cross-Country Bajas World Cup.

Heading into its third edition, the SuperFinale sees the top performing Yamaha YXZ1000R pilots compete in either the Stock class for standard vehicles, or the Open class for modified vehicles, covering more than 500km of special stages across the two days. As well as competing for the overall victory, crews in each class will be chasing some of the tantalising prizes on offer.

There will also be three wildcard spaces on offer for the highest-placed YXZ1000R finisher in various rallies through the year. The first opportunity will come at the Baja TT Oeste in Portugal on 6-8 May, while the other two spots will be decided in July, first at the Baja Aragon in Spain (22-24 July) and finally the German Offroad Masters 24 Hour (19-21 August).
