By totalmotorcycle $SUZUKI TEAMS READY FOR $SUZUKA #8-HOUR ENDURANCE
Team Suzuki Press Office – July 28.
Reigning World Endurance Champions Suzuki Endurance Racing Team along with Yoshimura Suzuki Shell Advance and Team Kagayama are on track and ready for Japan’s most-prestigious race, the 39th Coca-Cola Zero Suzuka 8-Hours World Endurance race this weekend.
Following two pre-Suzuka tests – the second at which SERT riders Vincent Philippe, Anthony Delhalle and Etienne Masson attended to get their GSX-R1000 set up for the demanding race – the 14-time World Champions are aiming to improve upon their third place in the series. The French team currently lies seven points behind series leaders after two rounds, Team April Moto Motors Events, comprising Gregg Black, Gregory Fastre and Alex Cudlin.
With possibly the strongest field ever in the Suzuka 8-Hour, Yoshimura Shell Advance – Takuya Tsuda, Josh Brookes and Noriyuki Haga – are looking strong following two positive pre-race tests: The #12 GSX-R1000 topped the timesheets in the opening test with Tsuda and Haga, and in the second, with Brookes – focused on different set-up options that they hope will put them on the top-step of the podium in Sunday’s race.
