GO RACING ON A SHOESTRING
Are you interested in road racing but put off by the high costs involved? Yamaha Motor Australia has fixed this problem with the introduction of the FZ6 Cup.
The FZ6 Cup allows you to go racing at a fraction of the normal cost. Just $7500 will secure a race ready 2007 model FZ6N, all entry fees and a fresh set of control tyres for each round of the YMF Loan Australian Superbike Series. The entry fees and tyre fees alone are over $4700 in costs that are all taken care of in the $7500 sign on fee for the whole 2007 ASC FZ6 Cup series.
All you have to do is get yourself and your bike to the race meeting and go racing. Contact a participating Yamaha dealer and ask how you can be involved and for the full details and conditions to take part in this great racing opportunity.
So you can go racing in a prestigious national championship series in front of a national road race audience and potentially receive television coverage for your sponsors and supporters as well. Each round of the FZ6 Cup will receive coverage on both SBS Speedweek and FOX Sports shows. The FZ6 Cup is open to all grades of rider holding a current MA National road race licence.
“Yamaha is pleased to offer this race class to riders who would not normally have the budget to go racing as well as to the young and upcoming stars of tomorrow. We see this as an important first step on the ladder to riders who may turn out to be the next Corser, Bayliss or Curtain… or even a class that attracts experienced riders with limited funds,” says YMA Director and General Manager Steven Cotterell.
“With a one off payment covering everything you need, YMA has made it easy to get involved. And with very similar spec machines we are sure both riders and spectators will enjoy some close racing over the season,” he adds.
The units will be prepared similar to SuperStock race spec, although some minor additional modifications will be allowed. 30 units in total will be prepared, 10 of each colour (Midnight Black, Power Blue and Metallic Silver) on a first come first served basis, so order now while stocks last. The bikes will feature:
• Removal of road going equipment
• Fitment of a custom made fairing (similar to early FZ1) and custom single seat made by Racers Edge.
• GYTR alloy body race muffler and lead-in pipe.
• GYTR braided steel front brake hose set
• GYTR crash knob set
• Öhlins racing rear shock absorber
• Öhlins steering damper
• Öhlins front fork springs
• ValterMoto rear sets
• ValterMoto clip ons
The bike will be supplied to you from a participating Yamaha dealer on a loan basis. But the winner of the series will be able to keep his/her race bike. Servicing and parts are at rider cost and the one off $7500 fee is payable to Yamaha Motor Australia.
So don’t miss out on this low cost opportunity to become involved in Australia’s premier road race series!
