Farthing Racing Continues as Factory Yamaha WaveRunner Race Team for 2024


Farthing Racing may be focused on Thailand right now, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t getting a head start on the 2024 race season.

In a recent post on his personal Facebook page, Dustin Farthing announced Farthing Racing’s continued partnership with Yamaha, saying that the team would be the factory Yamaha race team for 2024.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with @yamahboating for 2024,” Dustin announced, adding, “This upcoming season, we will compete aboard the 2024 Yamaha FX SVHO, GP 1800R and SuperJet while expanding into new classes and additional race series.”

Dustin also mentioned, in his Facebook post, that the team may be taking part in some rec ride events in 2024. 

While the post carried the feel of an official announcement, Dustin had already let the news slip about the team’s continued, and expanded, relationship with Yamaha when he spent more than an hour chatting with WCJ Editor-in-Chief, Kevin Shaw on The Watercraft Journal IRL podcast last month. 

“Yamaha was my first OEM manufacturer sponsor in 1992, and they are now Deven and Talan’s first OEM sponsor as well,” Dustin said during the podcast. “We wanted to build that partnership and Yamaha was on board to do that as well.” 

In addition to the relationship between Yamaha and Farthing Racing on the racetrack, the two have also partnered in the Farthing Racing YouTube Series, with the channel serving as a marketing branch for Yamaha.
