February 5, 20199 The annual conference for Yamaha Motorsports took place in Malaysia in front of media guests from all over the world. YMPH Motorsports and Safety Promotions Supervisor, Mr. Jordan Cornista, officially introduced the riders for UMA Racing Yamaha Philippines team. Veteran stalwart Masato Fernando and racing phenom McKinley Kyle Paz will don the national colors this racing season. The duo had an impressive performance in their last campaign with the younger Paz bagging a 2nd overall finish in the Australian leg. Their continued dominance of the tracks in the Philippines made them the perennial representatives for global jousts. They sharpened their skills at the tracks of the Yamaha Grand Prix where they battled it out against the top riders in the Philippines. Now they are pioneers in paving the way for future racers to reach the highest level of motorsports competition. This will be the first time the national team will compete in entire season in the ARRC. Building off from last season, these two riders are ready to continue their success throughout the competition. The goal aside from claiming victory is to inspire their fellow riders back home to believe in their ability to go head-to-head against international foes.


The conference also presented the global goal of motorsports. Improving brand value, innovating advanced technology for products, and increasing the exposure motorsports. This will be done through expanding in Central and South America. And the off-road competitions boosted in the region of Asia.


The 2019 Yamaha Racing season is officially underway. You can catch Yamaha Team Pilipinas at their first competition in the ARRC on March 9,2019 in Malaysia.
