Following a year of racing success on the roads and tracks of the UK, Suzuki GB PLC has announced its 2011 racing program – a subsidised opportunity to make racing more affordable for budding club racers or British Superbike or Supersport contenders.

With Suzuki’s all-new GSX-R600 due to arrive in the UK early for the forthcoming 2011 season and available on the program, the latest Supersport contenders look set to take the racing scene by storm, completely redesigned and shedding an impressive 9 kilograms over its predecessor.

Featuring Showa Big Piston Forks as standard and the renowned Brembo Monoblock braking system, the new GSX-R600 really is ready to race.

Also on the program is Suzuki’s established and proven performer, the GSX-R1000. The superbike dominated the British Superbike Championship, with more GSX-R1000s in the final shoot-out phase than any other bike.

John Reynolds (Suzuki GB Racing Director) says: “After such a successful year of racing right across the board in 2010, we’re delighted to offer the competitive GSX-R range once again on the official racing program.”

“With the all-new GSX-R600 set to arrive in the UK early next year, along with the GSX-R750 which have both undergone complete revisions and significant weight loss, these models combined with our proven GSX-R1000 offer racers a complete range with racing pedigree. To appeal to racers in Championships such as Mini Twins, we are also pleased to offer the sporty naked Gladius 650 too.”

Operational through all authorised Suzuki dealers, interested parties must be competing in any of the disciplines featured within BSB or MRO Championships. All other disciplines will be judged on a case by case basis.
