Yamaha Motor New Zealand riders were in it to win it last weekend at the 2020 New Zealand Superbike Championships’ season opener in Christchurch.

Cormac Buchanan, a 13-year-old Southland rider with support from Yamaha and local motorcycle dealership Rogers Yamaha, picked up three for three in the Supersport 150 class on his YZF-R15. He was one of many Yamaha Motor New Zealand riders who boasted impressive scorecards at the Mike Pero Motorsport Park (Ruapuna) round, which earned him the NZGP trophy and the team’s top result.

“I secured the honour by claiming the chequered flag by nearly 27 seconds. Congrats to Jacob Pierce and Liam Humm on their podium placings,” he said.

Top-tier riders Alastair Hoogenboezem and Jake Lewis, also with Yamaha, secured two provisional overall podiums, while Timaru’s Harry Parker (19) powered to third overall in the Supersport 300 class on his Yamaha YZF-R3.

The 2020 New Zealand Superbike Championships is a five-round series, with events in Christchurch, Timaru, Hampton Downs, Manfeild, and Taupo.
