YAMAHA GRAND PRIX RETURNS TO DAVAO

 

Manila, July 30, 2017 — Yamaha Motor Philippines Inc. returned to Davao City to hold its Yamaha Grand Prix competition. After being away for 2 years, the brand was ecstatic to be back in the region and so were their supporters. Everyone was eager to witness racing action that has been away for some time. It’s been a while since the roar of a Yamaha engine was heard and a display of talent by their local heroes was theirs to indulge in.

 

It was a hot day on the track but the competition was sizzling from the start. Preparations began at dawn as every rider geared for the long day ahead going up against the best that Mindanao has to offer. The competition had plenty of action with plenty of challenges for the riders.
