Broc and YART to start in 3rd for the Oschersleben 8 hour tomorrow
August 16th, 2013
 After setting a new World Endurance track record in first qualifying Broc, riding for the Monster Energy Yamaha Austria Racing Team, will start in 3rd place in the Oschersleben round of the FIM World Endurance Championship tomorrow with qualifying positions based on the average of the fastest laps from all 3 riders. "I had a couple of times some traffic so unfortunately we couldn’t go faster, we tried something and it was a little bit the wrong way and we didn’t have enough time to fix it, I would have liked to have done a 1’25” I feel yesterday I could have had a 1’25” but made a mistake with the gear. Anyway its good, we showed good pace and today we had a little mistake with the set up and we couldn’t all improve so much, we were close to our times from yesterday. Conditions today were more tricky with a bit higher temperature." Click here to watch the press conference.

2nd in World Endurance Championship by 3 points after Suzuka 8 hour
July 28th, 2013
I started the 2013 Suzuka 8 hour for YART from pole and we were in 3rd place and still on the lead lap after 3 hours but unfortunately we had a small oil leak half distance while battling for 2nd position and lost 4 laps. Anyway after 209 laps we finished 8th and leave Suzuka 2nd in the world endurance championship, only 3 points behind 1st with 2 rounds remaining, the Oschersleben 8 hr in August and the Le Mans 24 hour in September. Click here for the full YART Suzuka full photo gallery

Broc & the Yamaha Austria Racing Team Qualify on pole at Suzuka 8 hour
July 27th, 2013
Broc will start the historic Suzuka 8 hour race tomorrow from the front with team mates Josh Waters and Katsuyuki Nakasuga after YART-michelin beat the record set in 2012 to start from pole at Suzuka for the second year in a row. The N°7 Yamaha finished clear of the N°12 Suzuki (Yoshimura Suzuki Racing Team) and the N°634 Honda (Musashi RT Harc-Pro). Poor weather prompted the organisers to replace the initially-planned superpole shootout with a conventional 40-minute qualifying session which was spared by the rain. Ten minutes into the run, Katsuyuki Nakasuga posted a 2m6.817s, which improved on the record he established in 2012 by 0.028s. The Japanese teams did their best to beat the YART rider’s effort, but Yoshimura Suzuki Racing Team’s second-placed Tsuda (2m6.960s) fell 0.143s short of the pole winner. Nakasuga and Tsuda were the only riders to get beneath the 2m7s mark. click here to see the starting grid
