Pirelli and Yamaha have confirmed their support for the seventh edition of the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp, a unique training school, organised by the manufacturer and the VR46

Riders Academy of Valentino Rossi. Participants at the event, which will be held at the end of May at the Autodromo di Modena, will use YZF-R3s equipped with Pirelli DIABLO Supercorsa tyres.

The event will involve five young talents selected by Yamaha from the FIM Supersport 300 World Championship. This class runs within the Pirelli-sponsored MOTUL FIM Superbike World Championship Series.

The selected riders for the event are Dutchman Finn de Bruin (18), Italians Kevin Sabatucci (20) and Jacopo Facco (19), French rider Andy Verdoïa (16) and young Spanish racer Beatriz Neila (17), who is also the first woman to ever attend an edition of the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp.

With all the riders using Pirelli tyres in the race series, using the tyre package they already know will allow them to focus exclusively on the suggestions that the riders of the VR46 Riders Academy, including Valentino Rossi himself, will offer them in order to improve their riding styles.

In addition to Valentino Rossi and the riders of the VR46 Riders Academy, the young participants will also be followed by Marco Belli, three-time British Champion and twice European and American Flat Track Champion, and by the fitness trainer Carlo Casabianca. The five riders will also be able to train at the Galliano Park and at the Fisio Gym.
