2nd on the grid for the Bol D'Or at Paul Ricard with Monster Yamaha Austria Racing team
September 19th, 2015
We all did a good job today and we are feeling good with the bike. There was a lot of traffic on the track and on my stint I didn't get in one completely clear lap. Other than that it went really good. The team and the riders have worked really hard on the set-up of the bike and the tank to improve fuel consumptions, so we can stay out on track longer, which will be important for the race. I think this is the best position we have ever been in, with all three riders being this fast, and I hope we can get the victory tomorrow. Bike and all kit looks great in yellow, would like to thank all involved ‪#‎arai‬ ‪#‎ragedesigns‬ ‪#‎alpinestars‬ ‪#‎yamaha‬ ‪#‎yart‬ ‪#‎monsterenergy‬ ‪#‎60thanniversary #worldendurancechampionship

Podium finish with 3rd place in the Oschersleben 8 hour World Endurance Championship
August 22nd, 2015
We were a little bit lucky, we had a problem from the start with the electronics, the bike wouldn’t run in the first stints for all of the riders, we had to turn off all the electronics and go. The bike was much better after that, we just had to learn to ride different, we had no pit lane limiter or anything. Then I crashed on some oil and luckily the bike didn’t destroy itself and we could continue and we didn’t lose too much time and lucky to get on the podium. Click here for the full video.

Pole position with Monster YART at the Oschersleben 8hr World Endurance Championship race
August 21st, 2015

This year’s been a bit tough for the team because they’ve been so fast but had some problems in the race but the bike is new and some really small have things have happened. It’s the first time here with the new R1 for Yamaha, we didn’t really have a base set up, every session we have something new coming from Yamaha, we just keep putting the new stuff on, its getting better and better and sometimes we need to fine tune it. Today we tried something and it was not 100%, but we all have good race pace and consistency. For us the most important thing today was to get the pole position but also to make the bike good for everybody. Me and Sheridan (Morais) are more alike because we’re smaller and ride more supersport style, where Ivan (SIlva) pick’s up the bike up so we try to make a compromise. Its clear now for our race tyres and we’re all pretty happy, the good thing is we’re all fast, for any rider in a team it’s the most important thing. We’ll try to see the chequered flag this year. Click here for the full video.
