Bolting-on another year to its already successful two-year partnership, Pro-Bolt will continue to support Yamaha’s official WorldSBK team into 2024, as the project ramps up with the addition of six-time WorldSBK Champion Jonathan Rea alongside teammate Andrea Locatelli.

A UK-based family business, Pro-Bolt is no stranger to success on the world stage – with its products shipped worldwide and used in racing’s upper echelons of MotoGP, WorldSBK, British Superbikes, Road Racing and further afield into specialty areas such as aerospace, yacht racing and Formula One.

Yamaha and Crescent aim to add another world title to the accolade list with its proven race-winning Yamaha R1 WorldSBK with Pro-Bolt and its products a key part of the titanium-strength line-up next season.   

Paul Denning – Team Principal, Pata Yamaha Prometeon WorldSBK:

“Thank you to Stuart and the Pro-Bolt team for their trust and commitment over the past two years as an important partner to Yamaha’s official WorldSBK project. Pro-Bolt’s quality of bespoke titanium fasteners is simply second-to-none and we are delighted to use and recommend the Pro-Bolt product as we continue our collaboration into 2024 – the bolts we use in all critical areas of the R1 WorldSBK race bikes are exactly the same as customers can buy. Our partnership goes beyond racing, extending to Crescent Yamaha’s GYTR Pro Shop store in the UK, where customers can also upgrade their own motorcycles with the same supreme quality parts that are tried and tested on the world stage. Pro-Bolt’s titanium fastener kits are also a key ingredient to every Crescent Yamaha GYTR Pro Shop track day and “special edition” build – and we are excited to be releasing a new very special limited edition early in the new year.”

Stuart Bailey – Managing Director, Pro-Bolt:

“After a successful two years together, we are delighted to renew our partnership with Crescent and Yamaha’s official WorldSBK team for the 2024 season. With the extremely exciting rider line up of six-time WorldSBK champion Jonathan Rea and Andrea Locatelli, plus all the hard work going in behind the scenes, I am sure 2024 will be another successful year for the team. It’s an honour for Pro-Bolt to be the Titanium fasteners of choice to hold their R1s together!”
