Thanks to this collaboration, 3D printers have been introduced in the pits, for the first time in the world of Motorsport. This implementation allowed the Yamaha team to design and immediately produce components to be used directly on their motorcycles. It drastically reduced production times and costs. Several parts have already been created to replace aerodynamic and mechanical components of Yamaha motorcycles: from the creation of the equipment facilitating the “pits job” (such as jigs, customized mountings, motorcycle control unit casings) to the production of customized accessories for the so-called “cold motorcycle” (suction and discharge caps for storage engine, cover carter to facilitate the oil loading procedure, etc.).
The partnership between Motorsport and Mark One 3D printing laid the foundations for a real revolution in the racing world.
