Andy Verdoïa, 17 years old, from Nice, finished fourth in the World Supersport 300 Championship and 1st Yamaha rider. In 2020 Andy will ride in the 600cc class in the Spanish MS Racing bLU cRU Junior Team.
The will of Eric de Seynes (Director of Yamaha Europe) and Yamaha Racing is to bring the best Yamaha rider in the 300 class to the top level. The GMT94 wishes to encourage and reward the best French riders from national and international championships. The rider spotted by a certain Christian Sarron (250cc World Champion), will benefit from the support of the bLu cRu project, and of Yamaha who will propel him to the World Supersport championship. Andy Verdoia will also have the support of Christophe and Rémi Guyot, as well as their whole team. From Luca Cersosimo and Marcus Delestre (3rd and 4th of the Yamaha Challenge in 300cc Promosport) to Andy Verdoïa (600cc World Championship), via Florent Tourné (winner of the 1000 promosports 2019), Martin Renaudin and Maximilien Bau (600cc French Supersport Champion), the GMT94 consolidates his commitment to young riders.
Christophe Guyot: “Best Yamaha rider in the 300cc World Championship, Andy Verdoia deserves the attention of Eric de Seynes, and the whole “bLU cRU” project aimed at detecting and training the talents of tomorrow. The stakes are high and he will have to take the steps towards the top with patience and humility. We will be alongside his MS Racing bLu cRu junior team to help him in this challenge.
Andy Verdoïa: “I am delighted to see YAMAHA and the bLu cRu project supporting me for the year 2020. I will also benefit from precious advice during the races, from Ludovic Reignier (Yamaha engineer at GMT94), the mechanics and Jules Cluzel, the reference of the category! I’m very lucky to start with so many assets, and I can’t wait to start the season! »
