Yamaha Motor Australia and Serco Motorsport are celebrating their 20th season of competing together in 2020.

The partnership became official in 2001, with the Queensland-based Serco organisation becoming the factory ‘Lites’ team in 2004.

“YMA and Serco have been in racing for the long haul and the commitment we have to each other and racing has been strong,” explained Serco owner Gavin Eales.

“We see a lot of teams come and go, but look at Yamaha’s consistency in racing, each team has been around for some time and built up a good knowledge and infrastructure base that can’t be replicated in just one or two seasons.”

Serco Yamaha’s first MX Nationals MX2 title was won by Cameron Taylor in 2005, with Jake Moss (2007), Luke Styke (2013), Luke Clout (2014) and Wilson Todd (2018) also capturing the 250 class crown. In addition, Brenden Harrison claimed the MXD title in 2013.

In the Australian Supercross Championship, the first title came when Styke completed the double in 2013, before Jackson Richardson went back-to-back during the 2016 and 2017 seasons.
