Team Press Release
Cypress, Calif., – Yamaha Motor Corporation U.S.A.’s Customer Support Group (CSG) is proud to announce Yamalube as the new title sponsor of the Yamaha Factory-supported Star Racing Yamaha Team. For 2014 the team will be known as the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha Team.
Yamaha’s GYTR® (Genuine Yamaha Technology Racing) is again continuing its support of the Yamalube Star Racing Team and for 2014 increasing its technical engine performance support. GYTR offers a full line of performance solutions for the YZ250F and YZ450F. The team will use GYTR Cylinder Heads, Camshafts, complete billet clutch components, billet ignition covers, chains, sprockets and various chassis parts.
Because Yamaha has full access to all its models far in advance of release dates, its engineers have long lead times to develop, test and ensure the reliability of GYTR components before they are offered to the racing public.
“We are extremely happy that Yamalube has stepped in to become the title sponsor of the Star Racing Team,” said Bobby Ragan, team owner. “Yamalube has a range of products that we’ve used in competition for the many years we’ve partnered with Yamaha. Coupled with the continued support from GYTR, the 2014 season is going to be an exciting one for the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha Team.”
“I am very excited to see Yamalube join as the title sponsor of the Star racing Team” said Keith McCarty-Racing Division Manager. “Yamalube is one of Yamaha’s major brands world-wide so it is a natural fit for Star and Yamalube”
“Our Yamalube and GYTR products are specifically developed to maximize the output and longevity of Yamaha motorcycles used in competition,” said Trevor Kemp of Yamaha’s Customer Support Group. “We are proud to be the sponsorship lead and place our full Yamalube and GYTR support behind the Star Racing Yamaha Team. The relationship has proven to be mutually beneficial over the years we’ve worked together. We look forward to contributing to the Yamalube Star Racing Yamaha Team’s success in 2014.”
Yamalube – designed and engineered for Yamaha by Yamaha for nearly 50 years – offers a full line of engine oils, lubricants, chemicals, cleaners and polishes for all Yamaha products as well as other makes and models.
