“This season we set out to prove that the Yamaha FZR can completely dominate the APBA Prostock class and we did,” said MacClugage. “With the FZR being in its first year of production, it is truly amazing to see it outperform all of the competitive boats that have so many more races under their belt.”

“From conception, the FZR was designed to be the ultimate high performance race watercraft out of the box,” said Bryan Seti, Yamaha’s national marketing manager. “The results of the FZR on the National Tour demonstrate the game changing nature of this hull and engine platform for the closed course.”
