For the lucky six – Alfonso Coppola, Enzo de la Vega, Mykyta Kalinin, Kimi Patova, Renzo Ferreira and Robert Schotman, their time at the Yamaha VR46 Master Camp has reached its end. They spent their last day at the VR46 Motor Ranch, racing Francesco Bagnaia, Franco Morbidelli and Celestino Vietti, with Flat Track Champion Marco Belli present as ‘race direction’.

They stepped up to the plate on their YZF250s, completing two races around the whole track and one American style race around the oval. The last Master Camp challenge was won by seventeen year old De La Vega, with Kalinin in second and Patova in third. The riders then had to say a sad goodbye to the Ranch, but their spirits were lifted with a trip to the VR46 Store, followed by a trip to VR46 HQ.

But it wasn’t completely over. They had one final technical lesson, led by Sky Racing Team VR46’s Technical Director and Crew Chief Pietro Caprara. They were then taken on a tour to show them the latest products and the VR46 Riders Academy and Yamaha VR46 Master Camp bikes. The squad ended up back at the main office for the graduation ceremony, led by VR46 Riders Academy Director Alessio Salucci and Yamaha Motor Racing Srl’s Managing Director Lin Jarvis. The riders were shown a summary video of the last five days and were given a certificate of attendance, plus some extra gifts from VR46.
