For the 2021 WorldSSP season Biblion Motoxracing Yamaha have moved to a new headquarters in Fiano Romano, Italy, ahead of their second full season in the championship. 

The team will once again field a Yamaha R6 bike, having also enjoyed success as a team in the previous two FIM Supersport 300 seasons. 

While Herrera is still only twenty-four years-old, she has vast amounts of experience and is no stranger to the Supersport class. Herrera will take part in the WorldSSP challenge which features at all the European rounds of the series. This means she will compete in the first nine rounds of the championship. 

Herrera has spent most of her career to date in the Grand Prix paddock after making here Moto3 debut for KTM which came in 2013. Herrera competed in Moto3 until the end of the 2017 season before making the switch to World Supersport 300.

 

In 2019, Herrera made the move up with Yamaha into the WorldSSP championship along with a full-time ride in the Inaugural MotoE World Cup. She took on the same commitments for the 2020 season, but with just the six Supersport race appearances. 

Herrera had her say on why she chose to join the Biblion Motoxracing team saying: “I chose this team because many people speak well of Sandro, the bike, the group and the potential they have. My main goal for this year is to do a great job and have fun by going fast.”

Team principal Sandro Carusi also shared his thoughts on the move: “I am very happy to be able to announce Biblion Motoxracing Yamaha’s participation in the WorldSSP class with Maria Herrera.

"Having the only woman in the championship, who is a huge talent, gives us the opportunity to demonstrate the level we have reached. I'm sure it will be a strong incentive for all of us.”

With the team already giving young riders the opportunity to showcase their ability in the Supersport 300 class, it comes as no surprise that Yamaha Motor Europe Road Racing Manager, Andrea Dosoli is excited by the team's prospects: 

"We're really excited to see the Biblion Motoxracing Yamaha team coming back to the WorldSSP class in 2021." said Dosoli. 

"Sandro and his team have already given young talented riders a great opportunity in WorldSSP300 and it's great to see how they have continued that trend in the 600cc class. 

"Maria is an impressive and versatile young rider who adds good experience to the team and I expect them to achieve some strong results together this year."
