Yamaha Australia Supports Swain In Europe

  • By Stuart Simmons Yarrawonga
Yamaha Motor Australia has again jumped in behind one of our racing athletes on the world stage, this time offering support to Queensland based road racer, Cameron Swain, as he contests the FIM Yamaha R3 bLU cRU World Cup in Europe throughout the 2024 season.

Swain, who won the 2023 R3 Cup in Australia, headed over to Europe at the beginning of the 2024 season to further his career as he contests the FIM R3 World Cup. So far, three rounds have already been completed with the teenager experiencing top ten finishes at Assen and Misano but also a challenging time at round one in Barcelona.

“I’m excited to have Yamaha Australian on board and supporting me while I contest the World R3 Cup,” Swain explains. “I was almost speechless when I was offered the deal and the support they have offered is invaluable to me and my family as we try and race at a world level.

“The racing over is tough and every rider is fast and aggressive but having this additional support from Yamaha Australia allows me more time to train and focus on my racing and make the most of the opportunities I have in front of me now.

“It comes at a great time as we go to Donnington Park this weekend and I'
m determined to score my first podium of the year. Hopefully, I can start the relationship off right and get a good result there and finish the season off strongly.

Swain has been a long time Yamaha rider in Australia, coming through the ranks starting with the Oceania Junior Cup before moving onto the Yamaha R3 Cup and 300cc Supersport categories.

“We are pleased to be able to offer Cameron this support package and hope it comes in useful in his pursuit of international success, starting with the Yamaha R3 bLU cRU World Cup,” begins Yamaha Australia’s Motorsport Manager, Scott Bishop.

“Cameron and his family have made plenty of sacrifices in their racing so far and we hope this can help push him to a higher level.

“We wish Cameron well for the coming rounds and hope this is the first of many successes for him and his team,” Bishop ends.
