Developed for our newest bLU cRU members, the first event happens at Ranch MX near Raymond Terrace at round 7/8 of the MX Nationals on 14/15 July 2018.
The YZ65 Cup will take place on both days giving a money-can’t-buy experience of racing in front of a national crowd. And best of all - Yamaha is covering entry for rider and general admission for one parent/guardian.
Yamaha dealers in NSW have been asked to invite a rider to represent them. Rider numbers will be capped at 30 entrants who will ride a practice and race on Sat 14 July with two races on Sunday 15.
Yamaha’s aim is to offer a full bLU cRU race experience. Riders will be able to pit under the bLU cRU truck awning, with assistance from Yamaha factory technicians. Each rider will receive a bLU cRU hoody and hat and all racers and family members are invited to join our factory teams at a bLU cRU BBQ on Sat evening – all free of charge. More unique acitivities will be announced closer to the event.
Yamaha will film and capture high res images of the event which we anticipate to be a super fun weekend aimed at driving excitement around the bLU cRU and the new YZ65. Details of further events will be announced in due course. Interested riders are asked to contact their local NSW Yamaha dealer before Wed 27 June. Note that all competitors must have a Junior
National Competition Licence to enter.
“The YZ65 Cup aims to offer a great experience for new bLU cRU members as they take the first step on the victorYZone ladder,” says YMA’s National Sales and Marketing Manager Matt Ferry.
“Our young guns will feel like factory racers with their unique position in the pits next to legends like Craig Dack and world class racers like Dean Ferris. Only Yamaha can offer the experience of being mentored by the nation’s top race teams and it’s one that we hope will live long in the memory. Our goal is to make our newest bLU cRU members feel part of the family so they remain customers for life,” he adds.
