SUZUKI RACING

The latest breaking news for all things Team Suzuki
  1. Bennetts Suzuki signed-off the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship season with another race win for Richard Cooper in the Superstock 1000 class, as he narrowly missed-out on the championship crown racing the all-new GSX-R1000 in its debut season.
  2. Finally rain proved to be beneficial for the Team SUZUKI ECSTAR riders at the Japanese GP. Andrea Iannone got 4th place at the end of the race, with his teammate Alex Rins immediately behind in 5th. This is also the best result of the season for both the riders and for the team. The performance was seen a gift to Mr. Toshihiro Suzuki - CEO and COO of Suzuki Motor Corporation - who joined the Team in the garage to experience the race from the inside.
  3. Bennetts Suzuki's Richard Cooper set pole position for tomorrow's final National Superstock 1000 race of the 2017 season, before racing to a top-10 finish in the weekend's opening MCE British Superbike championship race at Brands Hatch as his team-mate Sylvain Guintoli was unlucky to crash out of today's Superbike race, going down on spilt fluid from another machine.
  4. Today's qualifying session saw Alex Rins and Andrea Iannone secure two solid places in the top 12. The Spaniards best time of 1'55.483 was worth 10th place on the grid, and the Italian is immediately behind in 11th place thanks to posting his best of 1'55.717.
  5. The Bennetts Suzuki team are at Brands Hatch for the final round of the MCE British Superbike championship this weekend with sights firmly set on adding to the success enjoyed last time out at Assen, where Sylvain Guintoli took the team's first Superbike win with the all-new 2017 GSX-R1000.
