We are proud to announce the new close collaboration between Gandini and GYTR as official suppliers and as technical partner of the team
Pata Yamaha WorldSBK Official Team for the season 2020/2021.
PILOTS – As for the drivers, the confirmations in the team were: Michael van der Mark – The 2020 season will be Michael’s fourth with Yamaha after another successful campaign aboard the # 60 YZF-R1 in 2019, where he finished fourth overall in the championship with seven podiums and an emphatic victory in Jerez, despite having lost three games due to injury.
One of the Netherlands’ high-profile sports personalities, with fans passionate about his natural pace and ultra aggressive driving style, Michael was advertised as a potential future WorldSBK champion.
The other confirmation is Toprak Razgatlıoğlu – His racing pedigree has already been demonstrated in several categories, starting with four titles of the Turkish Motocross Championship as a child before competing in his first race on the circuit of the 600cc at the age of 13. Moving forward a few years until he entered the world scene in 2015 and Toprak won the European Superstock 600 championship on his first attempt.
In Donington in 2018, he became the first Turkish driver to score a WorldSBK podium, finishing second only on his twelfth start.
The 23-year-old has racked up 15 podiums and two prizes on the fastest lap – and in 2019 his first two hits in amazing style!
Fiercely ambitious and as an official Yamaha rider, Toprak is definitely one to watch ..
Well then, let’s watch …
