Collaboration between Yamaha and the VR46 Riders Academy continues and this time young talent from the Asia Road Racing Championship will be involved. Five young riders from Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and Indonesia will arrive in Tavullia for the “Master Camp” where the Doctor and his staff will provide them with instruction and guidance.
The ARRC riders will take dirt track lessons at the Ranch and practice track riding on the Misano circuit in order to improve their skills and riding qualities.
“I am very happy when thinking about the start of the first edition of Master Camp which is only a few weeks away – Rossi comments - In the first week of July some by Yamaha selected riders will come to train with me and the VR46 Academy riders. This initiative is a great achievement, and it's only the first of many more exciting projects to come from this collaboration. Yamaha and VR46 have the same objective; they aim to help young talents to achieve top results in the motorcycle racing. I’m personally very happy to play an active role in helping young talent and I’m looking forward to meeting the Yamaha riders and training with them and the Academy guys at the Ranch and at the Misano circuit. They will spend an entire week with us, train with us, following the same programme every day, on track and at the gym. It won’t be easy for them, but I'm sure we'll have fun!”
