Although some mixed events took place earlier on, the actual Yamaha Classic Racing team started taking shape around 4-5 years ago. This picture shows the presence during the Yamaha 2004 Model introduction at the Paul Ricard circuit in France.
From the left: our late good friend Kent Andersson, Ferry Brouwer (team owner), Chris Groeneweg, myself, Melvyn Frey and Mario van Rooijen.
Ferry and I are wearing our original 1973 Team jackets. Ferry's jacket was later-on stolen during a classic event in Dijon, France. So, whenever you see a guy wearing this jacket, you do know what to do.........!
