Our Team PhilosophyEverything that we do revolves around our vision and this would not be possible if we did not recruit the most talented riders and if our team was not passionate about what they do, with a relentless craving to achieve outstanding results. Our vision and values guide us in how we work on a day-to-day basis and we hope they will give you great insight towards what we are trying to achieve.
Our Team VisionAt Altherm JCR Yamaha, our desire is to create a team that leads by example, that people and sponsors want to be a part of and that is successful on every level, leading to a long term future in racing both in New Zealand and Internationally.
We are all in this together. There is no 'I' and sometimes things will not go the way that we want but it's about taking responsibility for your actions and working together collaboratively. Team member’s ideas and perspectives are always welcomed and all team members are approachable.
We are here for the long haul. We want a team that is focused on the long-term vision and strives to achieve this together and will provide all the tools, resources and equipment necessary to achieve the team’s vision.
We want to create an optimistic culture where you know the team and staff has your back as a rider and you also have theirs by supporting others decisions. As a team, our focus is on the positives and solutions rather than the problems and blaming others.
It's important for the team’s future that all Altherm JCR Yamaha team members understand the costs associated with racing and keep this in mind throughout the season. Racing is not cheap and we do not have unlimited budgets therefore at times need to be grateful for what we have.
This is why we do it. It's not just about the results; it's success at every level. When we achieve all of the above values and work together as a team, success is inevitable.
