""But I'm a visitor here!""
—'Yuri', Cars: Mater-National Championship, [[{{{3}}}]]

Yuri is a character in Cars: Mater-National Championship. His model resembles a Lada 1200 with the front of a Volga M24-10 and the proportions of a Moskwich 412, and he is painted in a dark green livery. His license plate reads "YURIKAA", which is a pun on the phrase "Eureka" and name "Yuri", and he speaks with a Russian accent.


In Cars: Mater-National Championship, Yuri first appears in Team Relay #1, in which he is on a team with Luigi and Giovanni. He later appears in the Road Races Inside the Turkey and Canyon Run, as well as in Team Relay #3, in which his team consists of himself, Fletcher, and Gerald.

  • He and Philip are the only two new characters in Cars: Mater-National Championship that are not playable, although playable data can be found for both characters in the game's files.
  • Despite the cutscene for Team Relay #1 seemingly implying that Giovanni will race with Guido and Luigi, Guido is not present in the race, and Yuri races instead.
  • Unused playable data exists for Yuri in Cars: Mater-National Championship, suggesting he may have been intended to appear as a playable character at one point during development. Additionally, unused sound clips suggest Yuri may have been originally intended to appear driving around the hub worlds in story mode.
