Yamaha launches Racing Heritage Club
Yamaha Motor Europe has launched its Racing Heritage Club to bring together collectors of its racing motorcycles. Entry is open to owners of motorcycles from all types of racing, including Grand Prix, endurance and motocross.
Owners and collectors can register their machines to access technical information direct from Yamaha. They will also be able to gain information from Yamaha’s engineers who were involved in the development and maintenance of these machines in period.
The club also aims to organise events for these motorcycles so owners can use them on-track with similar machines.
Paolo Pavesio, Director of Marketing and Motorsport for Yamaha Motor Europe, said: ‘We have founded the Yamaha Racing Heritage Club not just to commemorate Yamaha's rich and storied racing history, but also to safeguard it and to bring it alive for future generations to enjoy in person.
‘We want these bikes to be seen and heard once again, not just to sit idle in a collection, which is why supporting collectors to restore and maintain their bikes is one of the primary objectives of the YHRC. Another objective is to relate the human side of Yamaha's racing heritage, telling the stories of the riders who raced these iconic machines and the people who both developed and worked on them.
‘We want to share our racing heritage with as wide an audience as possible, which is why the YRHC will attend a number of events each year to showcase these historic bikes, bringing them together with riders both past and present to keep our heritage alive.’
