Yamaha Motor Australia has bolstered its support of entry-level road racing in the country with the return of the Yamaha Motor Finance R3 Cup in the 2019 Motul Pirelli Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK), along with backing the all-new Oceania Junior Cup.

The R3 Cup is an entry-level class for up-and-coming riders, providing a national championship environment to hone their racing skills.

Continuing its tradition of cost-effective entry-level racing, Yamaha Motor Australia is offering an attractive value for money package for competitors that will have them on the grid aboard a brand-new race-spec R3 Cup bike for less than $8000.

Purchased separately, a 2018 YZF-R3 road bike costs $6299, and the YRT-developed race kit $5000 – the $7900 YRT-developed race package combines both with an incredible saving of $3500. Competitors only need to fit the race kit, throw on a set of tyres, fill the tank, and line up on the grid.

As series sponsors, Yamaha Motor Finance is also offering a tailor-made YMF package, where participants can purchase the $7900 racing kit through YMF with repayments spread over a 12 or 24-month periods.

A YMF sponsored and Yamaha bLU cRU supported category, competitors will receive a factory-style experience, with series support at every round by Demmery Race Team and Yamaha bLU cRU. There’s also a $20,000 prize pool on offer, as well as a live streaming and television package to entice potential sponsors.

The R3 Cup commences at Wakefield Park’s second round of the ASBK, scheduled for 22-24 March. For more information on the Yamaha YZF-R3 race package, visit www.yamaha-motor.com.au.
