First GSX-R anniversary day a huge success

The first GSX-R Anniversary track day has been hailed a huge success by Suzuki GB and organiser Focused Events, after a sell-out attendance saw over 135 GSX-Rs take to the Brands Hatch track in Kent on Wednesday 7th April.

The first of three special 25th anniversary track days this year, the Brand Hatch venue played host to owners of all eras of GSX-Rs along with both British Superbike teams with their riders joining the fans on track throughout the day.

Suzuki GB marketing manager George Cheeseman, commented, "What a great day. With not a slot free on track, it really was a sea of GSX-Rs. With models from every era in attendance and some really special one-off machines too, it was a privilege just to be present. With two more days to follow this year, at Snetterton and Cadwell Park we’re looking forward to more GSX-R treats."

With Tommy Hill and Yukio Kagayama from the Worx Suzuki Team and Alistair Seeley and Michael Laverty from the Relentless Suzuki by TAS Team in attendance, customers also shared the track with Prodigy frontman Keef Flint and Rugby Star and TV commentator Brian Moore, who both enjoyed track time on their own GSX-Rs.

British Superbike star and current series leader, Tommy Hill, was enthusiastic about the day, commenting, "It’s been great to get involved in the first GSX-R anniversary day. I did a few laps on the race bike, but spent most of the day chilling out with customers and looking at their bikes. They’re a real passionate bunch, so it’s not really a surprise that the range has made 25 years with that kind of following."

The next GSX-R anniversary day takes place at Snetterton on 19th July. For more information on this and to upload your own images from the days visit
