Yamaha’s Clout, Tanti, Mellross, Budd, Kingsford & Rogers will be out to claim victory in their respective classes in the AMX MX OPEN!
Yamaha has thrown their weight behind the AMX MX OPEN in Wonthaggi on the 11-12 of December, a decision that was made following the cancelation of the Australian Supercross Championship.
Yamaha’s welcomes all levels of competition and encourages clubs, organisers, and promoters to run viable and successful events as we return to some normalcy.
Yamaha are sending their Factory 450 team and Rhys Budd will represent the GYTR Yamaha Team, in addition to that the WBR Yamaha Team will use the MX OPEN to launch their new riders.
In their second year at the event the CDR Yamaha Monster Energy Team aims to claim victory as team owner Craig Dack explains the importance of racing.
“You can’t beat racing to prepare for racing. Back when I was competing, we would race 30 to 40 weekends a year. The age old saying that repetition only makes you stronger is true. Racing also provides you the best testing conditions. We will be using this event to promote our sponsors, our new rider line up and for testing” said Dack.
Yamaha Australia have also taken class sponsorship of the Junior A-grade 65cc class and Junior A-grade 125cc class. Yamaha support Junior Racing through their development programs and Yamaha’s Scott Bishop believes aligning juniors and seniors together at one event helps inspire the next generation of champions.
“There aren’t too many events where all junior classes compete on the same weekend as the factory riders. Having juniors and seniors at one event really helps inspire the next generation of champions and Yamaha are happy to be apart of making this happen” concluded Bishop.
