Motorrika company, a dealer of Yamaha motorcycles in Russia, planned to organize the Yamaha R3 Cup, a motorcycle racing championship for the customers. The race was to be held in Moscow in the summer 2020. The organizers invited customers to try on the roles of professional racers and take part in the fight for the title of the fastest pilot of a Yamaha motorbike in Moscow.
To make an amateur championship closer to a professional level, it was decided to present a professional motorcycle tuning service for the racers. All participants were offered to upgrade their motorcycles to a professional level by installing modified sports fairings of carbon fibre. There were several reasons for this. Firstly, off-the-shelf fairings have a large weight which does not contribute to achieving high speeds on the racetrack. Secondly, standard fairings made of plastic are hard to repair and remove after they get damaged in races, moreover, it is time-consuming. All these reasons make it difficult to maintain a motorcycle and can greatly affect the outcome of the races. To give competitors opportunity for better results and more pleasure from the competition, they were proposed using composite sports fairings designed specifically for racing Yamaha motorcycles.
