Press release

The Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team is pleased to announce that, following the inspection carried out by FIM personnel on the engine used by Steven Odendaal in the first two rounds of the season, no irregularities of any kind were found. The inspection carried out on this occasion follows the one carried out during the 2020 season, which also ended without the slightest irregularity being detected. 

An epilogue expected by the reigning World Champion team, which since its debut in the world of motorcycling has always respected the regulations in force in its reference category, in line with its philosophy of clean and fair motorcycling. After this further confirmation of the regularity and goodness of the work done so far, the Evan Bros. WorldSSP Yamaha Team is ready to face the 2021 World Supersport Championship with confidence and a desire to be again at the top of the category. 

Fabio Evangelista (Team Principal): “I'm not surprised by what has come out of the checks carried out by the FIM staff, as we are confident in the regularity of our work. The performance of our Yamaha YZF-R6 is undoubtedly of a high level, but this is the result of continuous work, which has allowed the 2020 package to take a further step forward. During the winter months our team, directed by Mauro Pellegrini, has worked tirelessly to achieve these results, so I hope that from now on there will be no further speculation about our alleged irregularity. I would like to thank all our sponsors for their continued support, and I look forward to the continuation of this season with them”.
