2016 Suzuka 8 Hours Yamaha Factory Racing Team Highlights

We have released a short video highlighting the #21 Yamaha Factory Racing Team’s journey and incredible performance under the “Be the Fastest Challenger” slogan as they achieved their goal of a second consecutive victory—Yamaha’s first since 1988—at the 2016 Suzuka 8 Hours.

Pol Espargaró returned to once again claim pole position for the team in the Top 10 Trial. With the strong support of the team and crew, Espargaró, Katsuyuki Nakasuga and Alex Lowes ran 218 laps aboard the YZF-R1 before they took the checkered flag and shared the Kando-filled glory of victory from the top step of the podium.
