YZ65 Cup Announced For New Zealand

Yamaha Motor New Zealand is pleased to announce the YZ65 Cup is going trans-Tasman and will be coming to Harrisville, Pukekohe for the third round of the MX nationals on the 24th February 2019.

The YZ65 Cup will provide a money-can’t-buy racing experience in front of a national crowd. And best of all - Yamaha is covering the $50 dollar entry fee for riders participating in the Cup. All riders must be aged between 7 and 11 years and will require a junior or mini competition license to compete.

Yamaha dealers across New Zealand have been asked to invite a rider to represent them. Yamaha Motor New Zealand will also offer the opportunity for two wildcard entries through their social media pages on Facebook and Instagram. Numbers will be capped at 40 entrants. Yamaha’s aim is to offer a full bLU cRU race experience. Riders will be able to pit under the bLU cRU race tent, with assistance from Yamaha factory technicians. Each rider will receive bLU cRU merchandise. More unique activities will be announced closer to the event.

Yamaha will film and capture high res images of the event which we anticipate to be a super fun day aimed at driving excitement around the bLU cRU and the new YZ65. Details of further events will be announced in due course. Interested riders are asked to contact their local NZ Yamaha dealer before 15th January 2019. Note that all competitors must have a Junior National Competition Licence to enter.

National Manager of Yamaha Motor New Zealand, Alan Petrie says “Given the success of the Yamaha YZ65 Cup in Australia, we are really excited to be bringing this event to New Zealand to provide our young, local bLU cRU riders an opportunity of a lifetime.”
