“The Yamaha R7 European SuperFinale is unique in that it brings together the best riders from the various R7 Cups and Challenges around Europe and allows them to showcase their talents on the world stage, alongside some of the biggest stars of the sport. The R7 has proved a popular Supersport platform, with an increasing number of riders signing up to race the bike at national level this season, all competing for one of only 30 places on the R7 European SuperFinale grid at Motorland Aragon. Last year the racing was close and exciting, with Italian Michael Girotti emerging as the eventual winner, but we’re expecting the level to be even higher this time around. Win or lose, every single one of the riders on the grid will enjoy a weekend that they will remember for many years to come.”
