Experience it for yourself

Based a stone’s throw from the UK’s home of Motorsport - Silverstone. The Yamaha YXZ1000R Experience nestles in the heart of Northamptonshire.

You get behind the wheel of your very own Yamaha YXZ1000R and put pedal to the metal on our bespoke off-road racing circuit. Your day starts in the morning with a comprehensive safety briefing, getting comfortable in your supplied safety equipment. You then take to a variety of circuits, each tailored to provide a different off road experience.

You will enjoy over 4 hours of seat time in the Yamaha YXZ1000R race buggies, using every inch of our race track. If you’re feeling brave, ‘air time’ is up for grabs!

At the end of the year we will collate the results and announce the winner of the Yamaha Driver of the Year who will receive a pair of VIP tickets as guests of Yamaha at the Moto GP. There is no charge to enter, the only qualification is you must have bought from an Authorised UK Yamaha Dealer.
