40+ New Yamaha YZF-R15 V2.0 gutted in a major fire at MMST Race track

Gutted Yamaha YZF-R15 V2.0 at MMST Race track

Today when I was surfing around in a Facebook, I found interesting pictures related to automobile and I thought of sharing it with my blog users. Recently at Wallace Sports Research & Foundation (WSR) Pits at Madras Motor Sports Track (MMST), Irrungattukottai, Chennai 40+ brand new Yamaha YZF-R15 V2.0 was gutted in a major fire.

It is surprising to know as none of the automobile blog or social media pages have any update on this incidence. Though we don’t have any further details or official statement from Yamaha about the unfortunate incident, a report is yet to be published highlighting the real cause of the fire.

This 40+ brand new bikes were bought by Yamaha for the upcoming third edition of the Riding Clinic in association with Yamaha Motor Co., Japan and Madras Motor Sports Club, which is to be held in between May 8th -11th, 2012. From the images, it is evident that the motorcycles have been churn into ashes and loss of property could be to the tune of lakhs.

It is also learnt that some of the Wallace Sports foundation& Research (WSR) single seater cars too were damaged, which was owned by FMSCI President Mr. Vicky Chandok. While the cause of the fire has not been determined, could this be occurred due to short circuit?
