Yamaha Austria Racing Team

Suzuka 8 hours 2017
Yamaha Austria Racing Team finish 5th behind all factory teams !

The YART Yamaha Official EWC Team have consistently remained the top performers outside of the top five teams this weekend, and today's race proved no exception. Broc Parkes was the first man on track, initially dropping to 9th in the first hour. Nozane then took over, and from there the team took turns to fight back, upping the pace until they were able to hold 5th position. A last minute technical issue with a chain adjuster cost a place but Nozane was able to bring it back to fifth and ensure that YART secured third place in the 2016-2017 FIM Endurance World Championsip.

Mandy Kainz
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team Manager

"To be honest, I am really happy this season is finished because we have been one of the strongest teams and so we think we can win next year! I hope we left all the bad luck in this season. The performances have been there, we have just been unlucky. Anyway, here we couldn�t really do much for the championship, as GMT94 didn't make any mistakes, so even though we were quicker here, we had no chance to catch them in the championship unless they made a mistake. They deserved the title. I am very happy for Yamaha and Christophe Guyot. Next year I think we are one of the hottest contenders for the title!"

Broc Parkes
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team - 5th

"We have to be happy, the four works bikes were the only bikes in front of us in the end. I think we all rode very well, we were very consistent, the times were very good and we couldn't have hoped for any more at this race. Unfortunately, we missed out on 2nd in the championship by one position today. In general, I think we have to be positive for the season. It's a brand-new team, with Marvin and Kohta coming in, we also had new tyres, so I think next year we will be even stronger. I think this year we were the strongest team in most races, so hopefully we can eliminate the problems and be stronger for next year. From this race, we could not have achieved anything more."

Marvin Fritz
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team - 5th

"I feel really good. Fifth place was the best we could achieve and we made a really good race. Broc did three great stints and that was great. The start was really good and in my first stint I was a bit nervous, but I made good lap times, was consistent and didn�t make a mistake. In my second stint when we had the small problem I showed the mechanic who was standing on the pit wall, so that when I came in they could fix it very quickly. That was really good and we didn't lose the position with Kohta fighting really hard at the end. That was the maximum we could do. When you look at the season, we were the strongest team for most races, but we didn't have the luck to put everything together. It was a good first season for me in endurance racing and with Bridgestones, and the fact it was only Kohta's first season as well makes us confident for next season."

Kohta Nozane
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team - 5th

"Both my teammates Broc and Marvin did a very good job today and were very competitive. I felt my pace was ok in the race but I am a little disappointed as I felt before that I could have been a little quicker this weekend, but this is something to work towards. In the end I am very happy for the result for the team, and I want to thank YART and Yamaha for giving me this opportunity and my teammates for their hard work. Of course, I also want to congratulate Yamaha and also the Yamaha Factory Racing Team for their important third consecutive victory, and Nakasuga-san for his record of three consecutive wins for a Japanese rider."

Yamaha Austria Racing Team will start from the 6th position on the Suzuka 8 hours grid !

The YART Yamaha Official EWC Team came out fighting in the Top 10 Trial, determined to prove their position as the fastest of the non-Factory racing teams. Kohta Nozane was left a little disappointed not to have dipped under the 2�08s mark with a 2�08.481s lap, but was happy to have completed the Trial successfully safe in the knowledge that there was more to come from YART. It was teammate Broc Parkes, the second rider out, who delivered the statement. Parkes was almost inch perfect, delivering a flying 2�07.634s lap to secure YART�s place in sixth on the grid. . Third rider Marvin Fritz has been quick to find a comparative race pace around the circuit on his first ever Suzuka race weekend, ensuring the team are ready to give 100% in tomorrow�s race.

Mandy Kainz
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team Manager

�Broc and Kohta really showed the maximum potential of our bike, tyres and riders. I think we did the best with the material we have, so to be the first position after the Factory bikes is absolutely the best that we can do, it was perfect. Tomorrow will be mixed conditions so we will see, but of course we will give our best.�

Broc Parkes
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team

�We have to be very happy with the result. For us the top six was our aim, The Factory teams were just in front of us and the gap to them was always going to be a little bit too much. The goal from my side was to try and do the best time I could to be in the top six. The time was the best I�ve done all weekend, I made a couple of mistakes in the first and last chicane which may have robbed me of a few tenths here or there bit it wouldn't have changed our position anyway. I�m happy with what I�ve done for myself and for the team, and for the position. From there we can definitely fight at the front at the start of the race and try and hang in to the front guys and see what we can do.�

Kohta Nozane
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team

�Broc got us sixth on the grid which was great. For me, I wasn't able to go as fast or do as much as I think I could have. I�m glad that this part of the race weekend is over and we can focus on tomorrow. We have no idea what can happen in the race, but over the last year we have fought as a team together, and all three of us have good pace here as well so I think we will be able to make a good race tomorrow.�

Marvin Fritz
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team

�Today�s result is really good. Sixth position after five Factory teams is a strong result. For me it was ok not to ride today because yesterday I made a really good qualifying with used tyres. For my first time here in Suzuka I�m really proud. I was really consistent which is good and I�m really looking forward to tomorrow�s race. I have three stints to do I think. It�s going to be probably the hardest race of my life but I�m looking forward to it!�

The force (Giglio) is with you !!! 😉

🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Broc Parkes did a great lap (207634) during the Suzuka 8 hours Superpole ! He had pushing the Yamaha R1 number 7 on the 6th place just behind all factory teams. Khota Nozane did also a great lap (208.481). It was few minutes of stress replace after of pleasure. The result of a great team work. Thanks to all YART and Yamaha staff, Ohlins, Bridgestone and all sponsors...

�I think we have to be really happy with how we�ve all ridden today. For my side I feel I made a really good lap time and then repeated consistently. In general the bike is feeling really good and I think we are all very consistent and in a good position for tomorrow�s Top Ten Trial, Kohta stepped up today as he was struggling a little at the start, and Marvin also. We are now all within a second of each other so we�re good to go.�

Go Parkesy! The team is coming together at the right time. Best of luck (and skill!) 🏍💨🏁🍾🥂

�Qualifying was easier in the first session than in the afternoon when it was a lot hotter. It was more difficult to improve my lap time then. The morning time wasnt too bad, and we made all three qualifying sessions with one set of tyres. I wanted to improve at the end but it was a little difficult. The plan was to save one set of tyres for the race so we have an extra set. Broc and Kohta are both looking strong so we�re looking forward to the race.�
Kohta Nozane - Qualifications quote
YART Yamaha Official EWC Team

�I didnt ride the second stint of qualifying as Marvin was still a little bit behind our pace so we gave him front and rear new tyres to improve; so we used a total of two sets in qualifying. To save extra tyres our strategy was for me to miss a session. My performance has improved over the last two days and my times were better today on used tyres than I thought they would be. All three of us have good pace and I think we can do better than I originally thought. There probably aren�t many teams with the same average rider pace between the team riders. I can�t say I�m aiming for the championship but I haven�t given up on it. It�s a difficult thing to make possible so we are focused on aiming for the podium. After that, if the title comes that�s great, but a lot depends on GMT�s race.�
