Crafar joins Suzuki at Motorcycle Live

Suzuki GB welcomed a very special member of staff to its Motorcycle Live show stand today, as 500cc grand winner and ex-World Superbike racer Simon Crafar joined the Suzuki GB team to work at Motorcycle Live, promoting his new Motovudu book and DVD that’s launching in association with Suzuki.

Best known for his amazing win over Mick Doohan at the 1998 British Grand Prix, Crafar now spends his time passing on the expert knowledge he picked up and by way of his latest Motovudu project, aims to spread the word far and wide, making track riders faster but safer.

Simon Crafar: "The objective is to teach any rider how they can ride faster and keep it safe – the methodology isn’t over complicated but effective with logical techniques.

“I have instructed many hundreds of people on circuit one to one and I get mad when I hear how much time and money some riders have spent doing particular training schools or reading books that obviously don’t work. They come to me with some fundamental problems with their riding that make it limiting and dangerous to ride any faster. Of course there is more than one way to achieve your goal, but you need to stay away from the techniques that cause unnecessary risks. I want to pass on the essential rules I learned the hard way, that work at all levels and are not limiting.”

Using the latest Suzuki GSX-R range to demonstrate his circuit riding techniques thanks to support from Suzuki and filmed at the stunning MotoGP circuit Motorland Aragon in Spain, the DVD has a cool and stylish feel, includes high energy, fast action shots and some amazing slow motion camera work – even those not interested in track riding will appreciate the atmosphere it creates.

Simon will be present on the Suzuki stand at Motorcycle Live on all days, so pop along and pick up some advice or maybe an autograph.
