Thorney Motorsport are the official Yamaha partner

Located near Silverstone race circuit in Northamptonshire Thorney Motorsport are the official Yamaha partner for the development of the racing YXZ1000R cars and upgrades. Founded by John Thorne the team has a long history in circuit racing but were an early entrant into the UTV racing scene and successfully competed in both a Polaris RZR900 and then an Arctic Cat Wildcat in a series of UK championships. Recognising the unique superiority of the Yamaha YXZ1000R John and his team quickly utilised this experience to develop the YXZ1000R Racing operation and were the logical choice for Yamaha when looking for a partner. This multi-year deal should see some interesting developments both on and off track.
