Britpart MSA British Cross Country Championship 2016 - Final
YXZ1000R Racing

After the DNF at the last round at Bovington where we destroyed an engine through water ingress we knew that a championship class win was out of our hands, Neil in the other Yamaha YXZ1000R has driven too well all season for that to happen, but at least a Yamaha was to be victorious in its maiden season and we weren't unhappy with our second place for what was a new car with zero development data on it. We decided to ditch the turbo kit, it just didnt add any real power to the car without generating issues of heat and delivery so thats gone into the work in progress bin for the moment.

YXZ1000R Racing

Well that was an interesting weekend. Its nice to have a bit of fun from racing and whilst our main series for this season is the British Cross Country Championship its important for us to develop the car for different kinds of racing and other championships so when we were invited to come along to a short course circuit race in Belgium we thought, why not.
