Suzuki Motorcycles: 50 Years of Racing
Suzuki Motorcycles is celebrating 50 years of international motorcycle racing this year, and to commemorate this milestone American Suzuki Motor Corp is printing five collectable cloth stickers, one for each racing discipline of Superbike, ATV, Off-Road and Motocross plus a special gold anniversary sticker.
The celebration kicks off this weekend with the release of a limited number of special gold commemorative 50th Anniversary stickers. These special stickers will be handed out at the Suzuki display at Laguna Seca Superbike event and at the Washougal Motocross pits. This special gold sticker will continue to be distributed at select events throughout the summer.
The next release will be a limited-edition Road Racing sticker honoring Suzuki’s long list of American champion riders and motorcycles. This sticker will be distributed at the VIR round of AMA Superbike Series in Alton, Va. in mid-August.
Also in August, Suzuki will release a commemorative sticker that honors Suzuki’s successful ATV racing history. The sticker will be distributed at the final round of the AMA Pro ATV MX series at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tenn.
Motocross Racing is highlighted with the September release of the fourth limited-edition sticker. Suzuki has a long and storied history of winning races with their revolutionary stable of dirt bikes. This limited-edition sticker will be available at the Pala Raceway for the final round of the 2010 Lucas Oil Outdoor MX Series.
October honors off-road racing at its finest, with the tough and wooded racecourses that really put machines to the test. Suzuki has done well in the woods with both their dirt bikes and ATVs. Look for this release at the final Ironman round of the 2010 GNCC series.
