The Yamaha Racing Team and tyre giant, Dunlop, have joined forces for the 2021 Australian Superbike Championship (ASBK) that will see Cru Halliday, Aiden Wagner and Broc Parkes all have their factory prepared YFZ-R1M’s running on Dunlop tyres for the 2021 season.

The 2021 ASBK season will see Dunlop and Yamaha team up.

“We look forward to working with everyone at Dunlop and doing our best to secure them a championship this year,” states team manager, John Redding. “Dunlop have long been a proactive and successful brand and company that race with a passion for high performance and that is the same values we share as a race team.

“Dunlop have a great range of tyres for us to test and select from, as well as great track side support with extensive knowledge of the tyres and performance.”

Broc Parkes and Aiden Wagner will be the riders leading the charge in the main event.

The relationship between Dunlop and YRT dates back many years and the combination has seen plenty of championship success in the past.

“We welcome back the Yamaha Racing Team to Dunlop,” says Dunlop Motorsport Manager, Robbie Bugden. “YRT are a very professional outfit and the most high profile racing team in the ASBK paddock so it is with real pleasure we get the opportunity to work with them again.

Dunlop sounds excited to be back with YRT.

“Both ourselves and YRT have set lofty goals for the 2021 season and I feel Dunlop performance and quality combined with the talented and hard-working Yamaha team is a great fit. We look forward to working closely with Cru, Aiden, Broc and the entire team and know that we have not just the product but the back up and service to give them a great opportunity at ASBK success,” Bugden signs off.

With the ASBK season set to get under way in February, the Yamaha Racing Team have been hard at work as they prepare for a full three rider assault, making them the largest team in the paddock.

Riders are itching to get back on track after the short lived 2020 season.

The addition of Broc Parkes is an exciting one as he comes to the team with not just years of international experience, but also maintains his relationship with Yamaha that has seen him compete for the bLU cRU throughout the world.

The Superbike class will be stacked with Yamaha contenders as in addition to the three YRT riders, two time 600cc Supersport champ, Tom Toparis moves into the premier division and will be mounted on the Yamaha R1 while Daniel Falzon, Marcus Chiodo, Jed Matcher, Arthur Sissis and Corey Turner will return for another season on Yamaha, all with support from YRD.

Yamaha will make up a huge portion of ASBK with the R3 cup and OJC aswell.
