Yamaha prodigies to battle for a chance to train with Valentino Rossi

Good news for the young and upcoming racers within the Yamaha team as they will be having a chance to engage in a training session with nine-time world champion Valentino Rossi.

The racers, whom are currently performing in the Asia Production 250cc in the FIM Asia Motorcycling Championship, will battle against each other to become the best in order to score a chance to train under the Italian.

Just yesterday it was announced that Yamaha will support the VR46 Rider’s Academy’s program and supply a total of 26 R-Series and YZ series bikes to the riders in order to train and further improve their racing skills at the VR46 MotoRanch and Misano road race circuit. Yamaha has initiated plans to contribute to the riders’ education process and giving insights into PR, team and promotional expectations.

At the same time, Yamaha too revealed that Yamaha Factoring Racing Team will be represented by two racers- names being Yuki Ito from Japan and Malaysia’s very own Mohd Fitri Ashraf Razali for the championship.

“The partnership between Yamaha and VR46 makes me very happy and incredibly proud,” said Rossi as quoted from Sport Rider.

“Through the Academy we have been doing very interesting things for young and talented riders and I believe we couldn’t have found a better partner than Yamaha to provide our guys everything they need to grow up quickly and improve their performances on track.”

“I am particularly happy because this agreement involves two things that I love and have put lots of efforts in; Yamaha and my Riders Academy. I really hope that this partnership will result in some great things.”

“We have been supporting talented riders and I am confident that together we will achieve exciting results. We are planning many activities involving the Academy and its riders. Yamaha is making many of these initiatives possible and I want to thank them for this chance.”

“I am also looking forward to meeting the riders that will attend the training session throughout 2016. I am sure they’ll enjoy the time at the Academy and that we’ll have a lot of fun together. Maybe we’ll find new racing talents!”
