The winner of the ‘Yamaha – 24 Heures Moto’ contest launched by French sports daily L’Equipe was handed the keys to his Yamaha R1 on the Bugatti circuit just before the start of the 41st edition of the Le Mans race.

Clément Brog – who made the trip from the Vaucluse in Provence – is the first winner of this year’s 24 Heures Motos. He walked away with a free Yamaha R1 courtesy of French sports newspaper L’Equipe, the organizer of the ‘Yamaha – 24 Heures Motos’ contest.

Brog was handed the keys of the Yamaha R1 GYTR/Yamalube by Vincent Thommeret, the director of Yamaha Motor Europe’s French subsidiary, and Hideki Fujiwara, the designer of the latest-generation R1, as François Ribeiro, head of operations for FIM EWC promoter Eurosport Events, looked on.
