Four young talented Yamaha riders have arrived in Cattolica, Italy, to take part in the sixth edition of the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp. Four new protégées have arrived in Cattolica to kick off the sixth edition of the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp training programme, arranged by nine-time World Champion Valentino Rossi, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd, the VR46 Riders Academy, and various racing experts.
The fifth edition, held in July this year, saw riders from South and North America and Asia join the five-day programme. For the upcoming event, Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. and the VR46 Riders Academy are excited to welcome four Asian riders who show great talent.
Malaysia‘s Muhammad Aiman Bin Tahiruddin (16) and Nazirul Izzat Bin Muhammad Bahauddin (18), Indonesia‘s Muhammad Faerozi Toreqottullah (15), and Japan‘s Shota Yokoyama (16) completed the traditional medical check-up and intake ceremony today. After the warm welcome and the gear from Oakley, Alpinestars, Saucony, Descente and VR46 they received from the Master Camp staff, the riders are raring to start training tomorrow.
Based on the previous five editions, the programme for the sixth Master Camp has been structured in such a way that it will allow the riders to gain valuable skills in various racing disciplines with the help of specialised coaches, including the VR46 Academy riders and multiple-time flat track champion Marco Belli.
The racing experts will monitor the Master Camp trainees' progress and help them further develop their riding, to boost their performances when they continue their challenge in the Asia Road Racing Championship and various local racing series.
