Yamaha has released a teaser video for something new, though very little information is offered by the short spot. 

Yamaha-Logo-10-27-11KENNESAW, Ga. – Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, is The Off-Road Championship (TORC) series’ Checkered Flag sponsor for all UTV classes for the 2017 season. Along with the Checkered Flag sponsorship, Yamaha Viking Side-by-Sides (SxS) will serve as track maintenance and support vehicles while the pure sport YXZ1000R SxS will be the official pace car for all Pro UTV classes.

The TORC series kicks off its first two rounds this weekend May 13 and 14 in Chicago, marking the second year the TORC series is featuring SxS racing. Yamaha Factory-Supported racer Corry Weller secured last year’s championship in the inaugural Pro Stock UTV series piloting her Dragonfire Racing Yamaha YXZ1000R. Weller was the only racer in the series to podium in all races she competed in, as well as the first-ever woman to win a TORC series championship in any class.
