Yamaha has retained the talents of Garrett Gerloff for the 2022 WorldSBK season.
Yamaha Motor Europe has offered Garrett Gerloff a one-year extension on his current racing contract that will have the American racing in WorldSBK through the 2022 season.
Garrett Gerloff is the only American competing in the WorldSBK and is having a very competitive and successful season, thus far. His best result this season was the British round at Donington Park, where he finished second. Gerloff also finished second at the Aragon round. Additionally, Gerloff made his MotoGP debut with the PETRONAS Yamaha SRT team, standing in for the injured Franco Morbidelli at Assen.
“I’m really excited to have signed this contract with Yamaha to continue with them next year. I’ve had a great time in Europe the past year and a half, and I’ve been really happy with the progress I’ve seen within myself, the GRT Yamaha WorldSBK Team and the Yamaha R1. We’ve made serious steps forward already this season, allowing us to consistently challenge for the podium, but I know there is more to come. We have been so close to that first win, within touching distance at Donington Park, and with the support of Yamaha and the team I’m confident we can do it before the season is out.” – Garrett Gerloff.
