Yamaha has been developing Filipino Motorsports athletes for more than a decade now. It started cultivating riders with a grass roots program that gave an avenue for Filipinos to compete and elevate their skills. Then, they further developed the potential of key individuals and took them to the next level. Today their roster of international riders is representing the Philippines in top global races.
The Philippines is one step closer to the European World Championship which is the next step in their development plan. That is due to the hard work of the Yamaha Philippine Racing Team and all its partners who are at the forefront of the Race your Flag Campaign.
