Yamaha all set to kick-start the YZF R15 One Make Race Championship 2012

Riding on its success for the last two years, India Yamaha Motor is back with the third edition of YZF-R15 One Make Race Championship at the Kari Motor Speedway, Coimbatore with Round I commencing from June 1, 2012. This championship will be followed
by 5 rounds and will conclude on September 30, 2012. The racing event is being organised in association with the Madras Motor Sports Club (MMSC) and the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI) and is a part of the Indian National Racing Championship 2012.

The race will be held in two categories – Novice and Open. The qualifying rounds for the Novice category will be held on June 1, 2012 and for the Open category it is scheduled on June 2, 2012. The top 15 participants in the qualifying rounds of both Novice & Open category will participate in two races of their respective category on the next day. 

The contestants will hit the track on Yamaha’s Super Sports YZF- R15 version 2.0 and experience the breathtaking acceleration of the bike on the race circuit. Loaded with true Yamaha racing DNA, YZF- R15 will provide a complete racing experience to the biking aficionados and hands on feel of its power, stability, cornering and braking. Yamaha will make their experience more exciting by fitting Daytona Racing Kits in the bikes. These kits are developed using valuable experience gained from MotoGP & World Superbike racing and are designed exclusively for racing purposes in a closed circuit. 

The winners of the R15 One make Race championship 2012 will be representing India Yamaha Motor at the Yamaha ASEAN Cup 2012 to be held later this year.

“We are happy to be back with our annual racing event which all the racing enthusiasts eagerly look forward to. This is a great opportunity for them to hone and display their skills in motorcycle racing. We have already organised this year’s Riding Clinic which proved to be very helpful for the racers most of whom would be seen participating in the R15 One Make race as well. The idea behind conducting such riding events is to identify and nurture talent in India that will one day be capable of representing India at the MotoGP races,” said Jun Nakata, Director - Sales and Marketing, India Yamaha Motor.

“I would also like to extend my best wishes to S. Shankar and Dinesh Kumar, the winners from last year’s R15 One Make Race championship 2011. They will be representing us at The SUGO Race in Japan in June this year."
