As part of the agreement between Abarth and Movistar Yamaha, Abarth will supply cars from the FCA Group at race and test events around the world.
The Abarth Scorpion logo is no stranger to Yamaha having been previously placed on the YZR-M1 machines of Valentino Rossi and Colin Edwards at the 2007 Australian Grand Prix. Abarth has a long history and credible pedigree in racing with Carlo Abarth achieving sporting success on two wheels as far back as 1928.
