Carlos Checa: 100 not out

Carlos Checa reached a new milestone in Le Mans: 100 Grands Prix for Yamaha in the premier class. The Spanish rider finished 11th in the Alice Grand Prix of France, his best result to date with the Tech 3 team.

Checa is second in the list of riders with the most race for Yamaha in the class. Only Norick Abe's has raced more, with 143 Grands Prix under his belt.

The Japanese factory have been instrumental in Checa's success in MotoGP, and provided him with the opportunity to compete again this year after a nervy preseason without a ride. In the following video we go back to Checa's 1996 Yamaha debut, a second place in Malaysia.
