For Yamaha MotoGP Riders, It’s “Challenger Accepted” In Preparation For Latest Video

Cypress, CA July 25, 2012 – In advance of this weekend’s Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, the Yamaha MotoGP riders are visiting Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., headquarters today. And a visit to the U.S. mother ship wouldn’t be complete without taking part in a video to commemorate the occasion.

Yamaha Factory Racing riders Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies, along with Monster Yamaha Tech 3 riders Cal Crutchlow and Andrea Dovizioso were caught in action, each with their own Hemi-powered Dodge Challengers, which will also play a starring role in the soon-to-be-released video.

“The scene harkens back to the Mercury and Apollo astronauts who became well-known for all driving the same brand of sports car following their space flights,” explained Bob Starr, General Manager of National Communications for Yamaha’s Motorsports Group. “Our MotoGP pilots are paying homage to those pilots.”

Sick. I love that orange one.... Article mentions the Apollo astronauts driving sports cars... Recently, Neil Armstrong's Corvette went on eBay and didnt meet the reserve at $250k.... Not sure these guys are at that level, but if I had the dough, Id buy Ben's Challenger.

Milo we took a group ride during the forum convention to the east coast Yamaha operations.. It's equally impressive

We took tours of the distribution operations, hydro dynos, mechanics training and look at some product development.
