Yamaha Motor UK offer the chance to win an R7 in Pirelli National Sportbike Championship

13 February 2024

Yamaha Motor UK are raising the stakes for the all-new Pirelli National Sportbike Championship in 2024 by pledging a brand new R7 as a prize to any rider who can win the new championship outright aboard Yamaha machinery.  

If the 2024 Pirelli National Sportbike championship sees a bLU cRU registered R7 rider clinch the overall crown at the end of the season, they will be presented with a brand new Yamaha R7 with GYTR parts worth over £10,000.  

This added incentive is an extension to the wide range of support and guidance that Yamaha is already offering to R7 bLU cRU riders in the championship, which includes a bLU cRU care package including Yamaha Paddock Blue clothing, exclusive access to track walks, track guides from BSB riders and coverage on the popular Yamaha Racing UK social media channels.  

Registered R7 bLU cRU riders are also committed to a full data-sharing relationship with the official Yamaha Support team, Rev2Race, allowing them to get the most from the time spent on track.  Further provision will also be available trackside with a full collection of R7 race-ready spare parts and upgrades available to purchase at a race-discounted price. 

There’s also the opportunity to earn a place at the European R7 SuperFinale, where the highest placed R7 rider in the Sportbike Championship as of 1st September 2024, will be invited to compete against the top R7 racers across Europe.

It’s not too late to join the R7 competitors already preparing to join the grid, with R7 machinery available to purchase from any Yamaha Motor UK dealership and Rev2Race the MSVR nominated supplier of homologated parts for the National Sportbike Championship. Find out more here.  

Anyone already planning to race and R7 can register for their free Yamaha Motor UK support here.

Matt Taylerson, Yamaha Motor UK Divisional Manager, Marketing, said: “We are really excited for the new Pirelli National Sportbike Championship and that’s why we’ve put together a strong package of benefits for those choosing to compete with the R7. We’ve seen a lot of interest already and it looks like we’ll have a strong Yamaha contingent on the grid. We wanted to support the Yamaha riders further by supplying a brand new R7 as a prize to any Yamaha rider who can go all the way and take the trophy at the end of the year.”
