Yamaha Factory Racing will be joined by new Official Sponsor BM Group for the remainder of the 2012 season and through 2013 and 2014. The BM Group already has strong ties with Yamaha having been a key sponsor of the World Superbike Team. As such it was a natural progression to move across to MotoGP and join forces with the Factory Team.
The Italian based BM Group has almost 50 years of experience in manufacturing and supplying electrical connections and is a global market leader in its field.
According to Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing, “I am very happy to welcome the BM Group back into the Yamaha Factory Racing world and into the MotoGP Championship. Both of our companies share similar values of passion, quality, innovation and teamwork. We enjoyed a successful collaboration in the past in Superbike and we look forward to partnering together in the coming years and to sharing many exciting moments and successes both on and off the track.”
Yamaha currently leads the points in the MotoGP championship with rider Jorge Lorenzo heading into the Mugello round in Italy this weekend.
