Over $20,000 up for grabs in entry level series
Following the annoucement that YMA would re-run the YMF/YMI R3 Cup for 2017, Yamaha has now disclosed that there will be a $23,250 prize pool for competitors.
Entry level riders who compete in the series will be rewarded right down to fifth place in a move to keep introducing new riders to road racing.
Because the R3 Cup is designed as an entry level race series aimed at showcasing new riders, all ‘A’ graders, international riders and pro level racers are not eligible to win any prizes – although they are welcome to race in the series.
Individual round payments will be awarded on a race-by-race basis but to be in the running for the overall contingencies, racers are asked to compete in at least four of the five rounds. All riders must display all series logos and run a Yamaha Racing patch on leathers in order to benefit from the prize pool payments.
