The first 100 owners of the Yamaha YZF-R15 who registered for the event took their units around the racetrack for an exclusive riding experience. Out of that 100, the first 45 confirmed riders had an extra special treat; they became part of a circuit racing clinic by former WGP Riding Champion & Yamaha Riding Academy Executive Instructor, Yoshiaki Kato.

To complete the lineup, the YZF-R1 was displayed as a preview of its impending arrival. Also in attendance was actor JC de Vera who became part of the racing scene by riding on the racetrack.

Racers Fernando and Coloma and actor de Vera were on board Yamaha YZF-R3 motorcycles.

The R-Series was in full speed on that day where technical ingenuity and innovative design were not only observed but also felt. The adventure was beyond physical as a bond was created through velocity, a connection was made between man and machine. This is how Revs your Heart truly comes to life.
