Yamaha Factory Tech 21 | 8h Suzuka:


Yamaha Targets Unprecedented 5th Straight Suzuka 8 Hours Win in Legendary “Yamaha TECH21” Livery



Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd. is proud to announce its line-up of teams for this year’s 42nd “Coca-Cola” Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race, set to take place from July 25th to 28th at the legendary Suzuka Circuit in Mie Prefecture, Japan. The #21 Yamaha Factory Racing Team will be aiming to take an unprecedented fifth consecutive victory at the event and will be joined on the track by the #7 YART Yamaha Official EWC Team as part of their 2018–2019 Endurance World Championship (EWC) season.


The factory team’s YZF-R1 will sport a special revival of the 1985 Yamaha TECH21 Team* livery as a nod to the origin of the team’s iconic #21 race number as well as to mark 21 years since the YZF-R1 was first released.


*This does not indicate that Shiseido Company, Limited will relaunch or resell the “SHISEIDO TECH21” line of men’s cosmetics previously sold in Japan.



Roberts resoundingly returned to the races at just 8 hours, touching with Tadahiko Taira the faded victory only in the final due to a technical problem. Subsequently the Yamaha TECH 21 team won the 8 hours in 1987 and 1990, in this last circumstance with Eddie Lawson and Tadahiko Taira, one of the most loved by the public in the All Japan universe.


The Yamaha Factory Racing Team will field the same winning line-up for the third time since 2017, with Katsuyuki Nakasuga, Alex Lowes and Michael van der Mark out to record a fifth straight Suzuka 8 Hours win. The team will once again be managed by All Japan JSB1000 Yamaha Factory Racing Team manager Wataru Yoshikawa.
