Motorcycle Racing History
A loyal Yamaha rider – and later Yamaha Motor Europe employee – in the FIM world championships from 1968 until his retirement in 1975, Kent Andersson not only brought Yamaha two 125cc Grand Prix titles but was also notable for being the only world champion to emerge from Sweden.
2011 World Supersport
The 2011 World Supersport Championship will witness the welcome return of the championship winning Yamaha YZF-R6 to the grid with the Yamaha ParkinGO Team.
In 2009, the Yamaha YZF-R6 was the track weapon of choice, dominating the World Supersport Championship in the hands of 2011 rookie MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow.
