In 2011 Yamaha celebrated it’s 50th year in Grand Prix racing with a special red and white livery used by the stars on track as they fought for MotoGP glory. To celebrate this incredible 50th anniversary landmark Yamaha has created a limited number of bikes across the model range. Three European lucky winners will now be able to own these should they complete the challenges correctly. You could be the one to ride away on either a 50th Anniversary Yamaha YZF-R1, a 50th Anniversary Yamaha FZ-8 or a 50th Anniversary Aerox scooter.
For European Facebook members Lorenzo and Spies have set six challenges for fans to complete, each of which will be revealed individually each Sunday 16.00 CET of the next six MotoGP races - starting August 19th. You will have until the 28th October to complete all six challenges so don’t panic if you don’t get a chance to start right away. All the details of the competition and how to get started will be revealed on facebook so head over to Facebook.com/yamaharacingcom to register and get ready!
We hope you have as much fun completing the challenges as we did making the video!” said Jorge Lorenzo. “It was cool hanging out at the Yamaha Dealership where we shot the film and getting to play with all the great products and bikes they have there, a real treat! We all thought the red and white colour scheme was really special and it was amazing to be part of the 50th Anniversary last year. You have to enter the competition to try and win one of the bikes so you can be part of it too!”
“The 50th Anniversary red and white livery is my all-time favourite colour scheme,” said Ben Spies. “It brought me a lot of good luck last year and some pretty impressive MotoGP results! Take on our challenges and see if you can be lucky too!”
