“I have always been a Yamaha person and to get this opportunity and support via Yamaha Motor Australia is amazing and I look forward to working with everyone at Yamaha to produce the best possible results I can and see if we can win a world championship.

Things are on track for Relph who already in pre-season testing and shown she has the speed and experience to run with the fastest women in the world and feels this extra boost from Yamaha, will only strengthen her campaign for success.

“When discussing the arrangement with Yamaha, they were happy to find out exactly what my needs are and where we best place these sources to give me the best chance of success. I love racing riding the R7 and its my favourite bike,” Relph continues.

“At the first test, I was within a second of the fastest riders and feel there was still plenty left in me and the bike so now with this support, I can fully focus on riding my best and getting on with the job.

“Thank you to Yamaha Australia and hope this is the start of a successful relationship between us,” she ends.
