Australia’s fastest Yamaha dealer, Rodney Faggotter, has won the gruelling Australian Safari on a WR450F.
Team Active8 rider Faggotter piloted his WR450F Rally machine to his second consecutive Australian Safari victory in the seven day event that runs annually in the Western Australian outback.
Faggotter is the Dealer Principal of Centretune Motorcycles, a Yamaha dealer based in Longreach, Queensland.
His victory gives the versatile WR450F a welcome boost: “Many of our off road riders opt to race the YZF range for a number of reasons and generally for shorter events. But Rodney and the Active8 Team have chosen to develop the WR450F enduro machine for its ability to handle the rigorous conditions offered by the Australian Safari. The decision has certainly paid dividends,” says YMA race team manager Ray Howard.
