Yamaha Austria Racing Team kick-off 2010 FIM World Endurance season with a hard fought podium


2009 World Endurance Champions YART (Yamaha Austria Racing Team) made a great start to their 2010 championship challenge at Le Mans last weekend, battling through the legendary 24Hrs race to secure a second place finish on the podium. Having qualified fourth on the grid, riders Igor Jerman, Steve Martin and Gwen Giabbani pushed hard, leading the race for several laps until a mechanical issue with the rear wheel caused an unscheduled stop. But despite the setbacks they battled on with their 2010 YZF-R1 to claim their deserved podium finish.

“The initial speed of the race was incredibly high,” said YART team manager Mandy Kainz. “It was a challenging first race of the season but we rose to meet it and the riders, team and bike performed brilliantly. I’m really overjoyed that we managed to secure second place, keeping us close to the top of the championship table. I’m confident we can challenge for another world title this year.”
