Yamaha Motor Europe Unveil 2018 Road Racing Lineup
Yamaha Motor Europe is delighted to announce its official road racing lineup for 2018, with the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team leading the way as they spearhead the challenge for glory in the FIM Superbike World Championship. The GRT Yamaha Official WorldSSP Team will be back to defend their clean sweep of the FIM Supersport World Championship titles on offer in 2017 and, once again, six young talents will compete as a part of the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Challenge in the dramatic and exciting FIM Supersport 300 World Championship. Reigning FIM Endurance World Champions, the GMT94 Yamaha Official EWC Team, are unchanged for 2018 as they look to continue the incredible form that has seen them record four victories in the last five endurance races, as they renew their battle alongside the YART Yamaha Official EWC Team for the 2017/2018 FIM Endurance World Championship.

The 2018 WorldSBK season sees Crescent Racing continue their partnership with the Japanese manufacturer following Yamaha’s impressive return to the championship in 2016 after an absence of four years with the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team. The 2017 season saw the team record six podiums with riders Alex Lowes (4) and Michael van der Mark (2) showing incredible improvements throughout the season, establishing themselves as regular podium contenders by the end of the year. Both riders return for the 2018 season to spearhead the team’s assault on the title onboard the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK YZF-R1s.

Yamaha Motor Europe is also delighted to announce a new partnership with Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing that will see the two brands work together, supporting a selection of riders from the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU Challenge and also the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team. Yamaha Indonesia Motor Manufacturing (YIMM) is the company who manufacture and distribute Yamaha motorcycles in Indonesia. The bikes will carry the Yamaha Indonesian slogan “Semakin di Depan”, which means “one step ahead”, a philosophy that embodies everything YIMM are trying to achieve, offering customers better products, better after sales services and more satisfaction. This marks an exciting new era in the Yamaha road racing project in helping to support racing around the world and the potential of the collaboration has already been highlighted by the excellent performances of Indonesian rider Galang Hendra Pratama in the 2017 WorldSSP300 championship as a wildcard that earnt him a full-time place in the Yamaha R3 bLU cRUChallenge for 2018.

WorldSBK – Yamaha YZF-R1
The Yamaha YZF-R1 has proved itself on and off the track, claiming victory in the Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race alongside the British and American Superbike Championship titles during the first year of its triumphant return to motorsports in 2015. The R1 has since gone on to make it three consecutive victories at Suzuka (2015, 2016, 2017), plus also won the 2016/2017 FIM Endurance World Championship in the hands of the GMT94 Yamaha Official EWC Team.
Replicating the production motorcycle, the WorldSBK-Spec YZF-R1 is adapted for World Championship competition by removing road-safety aspects such as headlights and wing-mirrors, replacing bodywork with racing items and allowing modifications to engine management, exhaust systems, suspension, brakes and a number of engine parts. Current regulations stipulate the bike must weigh a minimum of 168kg, with power ranging between 750cc and 1200cc, depending on the number of cylinders the engine contains, while the tuning of race machines is now subject to more limitations than in previous years due to the restriction of technical modifications.
Now in their third year back in the Superbike World Championship, Yamaha has been showing the competition what makes them one of the most well respected and timeless names in motorsport. With consistent results and year on year improvements to form, the YZF-R1 earned six podiums in 2017 for Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team’s Alex Lowes (4) and Michael van der Mark (2), establishing them as regular podium contenders by the end of the season, with the focus for 2018 on mounting a serious title challenge.

Kawasaki Motorcycle History
Kawasaki emerged out of the ashes of the second World War to become one of the big players from Japan. In the late ’60s and early ’70s, Kawasaki built a reputation for some of the most powerful engines on two wheels, spawning legendary sportbikes like the Ninja series and a line of championship-winning off-road bikes. .1896
The company is founded by Shozo Kawasaki. His firm will come to be known as Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Over time, the company’s principal areas of activity will be shipbuilding, railroad rolling stock, and electrical generating plants. Motorcycles will become a small part of this diversified industrial conglomerate. 1960
Kawasaki signs agreement to take over Meguro motorcycles, a major player in the nascent Japanese motorcycle manufacturing business. Meguro is one of the only Japanese companies making a 500cc bike. In England and the UK, Meguro’s 500 – which bears a strong resemblance to the BSA A7 – is derided as a cheap copy. But in fact, it is a pretty high-quality bike. 1961
Kawasaki produces its first complete motorcycle – the B8 125cc two-stroke. 1962
A series of the two-stroke models from 50-250cc is released. The 250cc disc-valve ‘Samurai’ attracts notice in the U.S. 1966
The 650W1 is released and is the biggest bike made in Japan at the time. It’s inspired by the BSA A10. Over the next few years it will get twin carbs, and high pipes for a ‘scrambler’ version. 1969
Dave Simmonds gives Kawasaki its first World Championship, in the 125cc class
The striking Kawasaki H1 (aka Mach III) a 500cc three-cylinder two-stroke is released. Although its handling leaves something to be desired, the motor is very powerful for the day. It’s one of the quickest production bikes in the quarter-mile. The Mach III establishes Kawasaki’s reputation in the U.S. (In particular, it establishes a reputation for powerful and somewhat antisocial motorcycles!) A wonderful H1R production racer is also released – a 500cc racing bike.
Over the next few years, larger and smaller versions of the H1, including the S1 (250cc) S2 (350cc) and H2 (750cc) will be released. They’re successful in the marketplace, and the H2R 750cc production racer is also successful on the race track, but Kawasaki knows that the days of the two-stroke streetbike are coming to an end.
The company plans to release a four-stroke, but is shocked by the arrival of the Honda 750-Four. Kawasaki goes back to the drawing board.
The first new four-stroke since the W1 is released. It’s worth the wait. The 900cc Z1 goes one up on the Honda 750 with more power and double overhead cams. Over the next few years, its capacity will increase slightly and it will be rebadged the Z-1000. 1978
Kork Ballington wins the 250cc and 350cc World Championships with fore-and-aft parallel-Twin racers (Rotax also built racing motors in this configuration. Ballington will repeat the feat in ’79. In 1980 he will finish second in the premier 500cc class. Anton Mang takes over racing duties in the 250 and 350 classes, and he will win four more titles over the next three years. This is the most successful period for Kawasaki in the World Championship.
Kawasaki’s big-bore KZ1300 is released. Honda and Benelli have already released six-cylinder bikes by this time, but Kawasaki’s specification includes water cooling and shaft drive. To underline the efficiency of the cooling system, its launch is held in Death Valley. Despite its substantial weight, journalists are impressed.
Over the next few years, the KZ1300 will get digital fuel injection and a full-dress touring version will be sold as the ‘Voyager.’ This model is marketed as “a car without doors”!
Eddie Lawson wins the AMA Superbike championship for Kawasaki after an epic battle with Honda’s Freddie Spencer. He will repeat as champion the following year.
Kawasaki releases the GPz550. It’s air-cooled and has only two valves per cylinder, but its performance threatens the 750cc machines of rival manufacturers. This is the bike that launches the 600 class.
The liquid-cooled four-valve GPz900R ‘Ninja’ is shown to the motorcycle press for the first time at Laguna Seca. They’re stunned. 1985
James “Bubba” Stewart, Jr. is born. Kawasaki supplies his family with Team Green diapers. 1989
The first ‘ZXR’-designated bikes reach the market. They are 750cc and 400cc race replicas. 1990
The ZX-11 is launched and features a 1052cc engine. It is the first production motorcycle with ram-air induction and the fastest production bike on the market. 1991
The ZXR750R begins a four year run as the top bike in the FIM Endurance World Championship. 1993
Scott Russell wins the World Superbike Championship, much to Carl Fogarty’s dismay. 2000
The ZX-12R is released – the new flagship of the ZX series. 2002
Bubba Stewart wins AMA 125 MX championship. 2003
Stewart is AMA 125 West SX champ. “What the heck is he doing on the jumps?” people wonder. It’s the “Bubba Scrub.”
In a daring move that acknowledges that only a small percentage of supersports motorcycles are ever actually raced, Kawasaki ups the capacity of the ZX-6R to 636cc. Ordinary riders welcome a noticeable increase in mid-range power, and the bike is the king of the ‘real world’ middleweights.
Stewart wins the AMA 125 East SX title, and the 125cc outdoor championship. There are only one or two riders on 250s who lap any faster than he does on the little bikes.
Just when we thought motorcycles couldn’t get any crazier, the ZX-10R is released. OMG, the power!
Although his transition to the big bikes hasn’t been as smooth as many expected it to be, Stewart wins the 2007 AMA SX championship. 2008
Kawasaki gives the Concours a much-needed revamp in the Concours 14. Sharing the 1352cc engine from the ZX-14, it’s touted as the ultimate sport touring motorcycle.
While they’re at it, Kawasaki also decides to give the Ninja 250 and KLR 650 major updates, after years of inactivity.

KDJR, 8 yo American motorcycle racer, does a lot of motorcycle training via drills in a parking lot. This is one of the many cone drills we use called rows. The rows are so tight that he needs to transition (move) from left to right quickly in order make the next row. Also, he needs to use the all of the space in the row in order to make the turn. These types of drills are very popular in the mini gp world.

Thank you for watching this video. I hope that you keep up with 8 year old Kristian Daniel Jr (KDJR) videos about his mini moto racing, training and our race parent advice. Please subscribe, share and comment! We love reading your comments 🙂

Kristian Daniel Jr is an exciting young Motorcycle Road Racer (born 2009) out of Southern California who will be racing full time in Spain for the 2018 season.

He’s funny, handsome, very smart and has a sincere passion for racing and has come a long way in a very short period of time. After attending a MotoGP race in 2013 (age 4), he made his mind that he wanted to race Motorcycles. 2 months later, he learned to ride a bicycle and 2 weeks after that he had his first BMX race where he finished 2nd. It was obvious that he was a natural competitor.

After a lot of begging, he got his first motorcycle Christmas 2014, and that’s when he first rode. February 2015 he participated in his first Motorcycle Road Race, and pulled in a second place. He just completed the season and finished 4th in Overall Points in the M1-GP Sprint Series.

Following the American tradition, in July 2015 he began racing Flat Track with So Cal Flat Track Association. Again, he was immediately competitive and finished his first race in 3rd place. He has achieved 2 first place finishes and a hand full of 2nds and 3rds… not finishing one race off of the podium.

He still has his eyes set on MotoGP, but his immediate plans are to continue developing his skills on the road and in the dirt having fun all the while!
