ONBOARD – KNIGHTER ON YZ450F
Guess who’s back? Yup, Knighter’s back and he’s tearing up his test track on a Yamaha YZ450F!
David Knight is back in action and will take on the Weston Beach Race later this month for Yamaha! Joining forces with Team Yamaha France, Knight will race a YZ450F.
Yamaha France are no slouch when it comes to beach racing and with Knight on board – the most successful rider at Weston – it’s clear that they are serious about winning.
“I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be competing at the 2014 Weston Beach Race on a Team Yamaha France YZ450F, fully prepared by the team,” confirmed Knight.
“Their record at big international beach races like Le Touquet speaks for itself and with their knowledge of the Yamaha YZ 450F at this type of race and my experience at Weston, I think it’s a great chance to be able to add to my record number of wins.
“I really can’t wait and I am really looking forward to the challenge Weston Beach Race throws up every year. It’s definitely a race that requires great preparation and some luck, as it’s so demanding on man and machine. I’ll be relishing the challenge ahead and hopefully have some fun along the way.
“A big thanks to Erik at Yamaha Europe and Karl at Yamaha UK for all their support.”
Whether this is just a one-time deal remains to be seen but if things go to plan seeing Knighter line up for Le Touquet next February could become a real possibility!
