Dutchman van der Mark has been something of a revelation on the global motorsport stage since 2011. Finishing third in the European Superstock 600 Championship in his debut year, Michael became champion in just his second season in 2012. A pattern he repeated as his career progressed, 2014 saw him become World Supersport Champion alongside claiming his second victory at the prestigious Suzuka 8 Hours endurance race.
Since joining the Pata Yamaha Official WorldSBK Team at the beginning of 2017, Michael has continued to display the same natural pace and determination to win that delivered him early success.
Together with Alex, the team has created the series’ youngest and most exciting-to-watch rider pairing in recent years as they strive to secure WorldSBK success for Yamaha in 2018.
