Toprak Razgatlioglu and Andrea Locatelli head into the 2021 WorldSBK season with a new leading sponsor onboard the Pata Yamaha R1. 

The new livery sees business modelling software company Brixx take the place of long-time partner Rizla. 

Razgatlioglu will be the team’s big hope of challenging for the title in 2021 after the departure of Michael Van Der Mark. 

The Turkish rider claimed three wins during the 2020 WorldSBK season and finished fourth in the championship standings. 

Rookie team-mate Locatelli makes the move up into the factory team following a dominant championship year in WorldSSP. 

The former Moto3 and Moto2 rider won 11 out of 15 rounds. Both riders have already tested in Misano and will be on track again tomorrow for the first of two days testing in Barcelona in the lone Official pre-season test. 

Speaking about the new partnership, Team Principal Paul Denning said: "Both the Crescent team and Yamaha Motor Europe are delighted to welcome BRIXX to the project and we look forward to developing this important partnership over the course of 2021 and into the future. 

"Yamaha WorldSBK aims to provide BRIXX with global awareness of its financial modelling software, which our business is already using to great effect – no more clunky spreadsheets! 

"The bright red BRIXX identity also adds a fresh new look to the Official R1 WorldSBK race machine for this year and we aim together to take it to the top of the podium."
