Yamaha team gathers ahead of 2012 season

Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies give sponsors and suppliers a sneak preview of the team's 2012 MotoGP livery.
Yamaha Factory MotoGP stars Jorge Lorenzo and Ben Spies treated nearly 50 sponsors, suppliers and partners to a sneak preview of the 2012 YZR-M1 race livery, during a special gathering in the wine cellars of Gruppo Meregalli in Monza, Italy, on Sunday.

“Having started this season with two positive tests in Sepang it was a pleasure to then be able to share these experiences together with our large family of sponsors and partners,” said Lin Jarvis, managing director of Yamaha Motor Racing.

“This unique location close to our headquarters and workshops here in Monza provided the perfect backdrop. I would like to thank Marcello Meregalli and his team for hosting us so elegantly for this occasion.

“The evening was charged with positivity and optimism for the season ahead. We are all eager to first get to Jerez for our official team launch and then soon after the Qatar Grand Prix. We're almost ready and everybody is excited at the prospect of the first race.”

As last year, Yamaha will not have a title sponsor for the 2012 season, meaning race colours are likely to be largely based on Yamaha blue.

The third and final official pre-season test takes place at Jerez from March 23-25, with round one in Qatar on April 8.
