A Legacy of Excellence

Since 2017, Bridgestone has been a steadfast supporter of teams competing in the EWC series, providing them with their high-performance BATTLAX tyres. Known for their exceptional grip, durability, and comfort handling, these tyres have been a cornerstone in the championship runs.

This year, the YART Yamaha Official EWC Team, one of the three teams backed by Bridgestone, showcased a consistent performance throughout the season. They secured second place in the opening race and clinched the top spot in the second race. Their strong performance led them to the Bol d'Or 24-hour endurance race in France, held on September 16-17, where they finished in fourth place, ultimately winning the championship title.

The Road to Victory

Mandy Kainz, Team Manager of YART Yamaha Official EWC Team, expressed immense pride and satisfaction with the achievement. "Our riders have led in every single round this year. Despite facing challenges like crashing on oil at Le Mans and minor technical issues in Suzuka, they never gave up. Their fighting spirit, bravery, and determination make them true endurance riders. This championship means a lot to us, and we are already looking forward to defending our title next year," said Kainz.

A Partnership for Success

Tatsuya Uchida, Director of the Motorsport Division at Bridgestone Corporation, also extended his congratulations and gratitude. "Bridgestone is incredibly proud to have contributed to YART Yamaha Official EWC Team's championship win. Our tyres maximise the performance of both riders and their bikes, even under the extreme conditions of endurance races. We look forward to continuing our support and to further developing tyres with even higher levels of quality and performance," Uchida stated.

Looking Ahead

As the dust settles on this year's championship, both Bridgestone and YART Yamaha Official EWC Team are already setting their sights on the future. With a successful partnership and a shared passion for motorsport, they aim to continue their winning streak in the years to come.
