GSX-R continues to lead the world

With the third round of the British Superbike Championship (BSB) creating another weekend of GSX-R podium domination at Oulton Park over the May bank holiday weekend, and Leon Haslam remaining series leader in the World Superbike Championship, Suzuki is pleased to maintain its unblemished record this season, leading all major championships from the beginning of the year.

As the Relentless Suzuki by TAS team took their first Superbike win with Michael Laverty at Oulton Park, Worx Suzuki rider Tommy Hill continued to extend his BSB championship lead ending the event with a solid 51 advantage over his nearest rival, while Laverty and teammate Alastair Seeley join Hill inside the top-five of the series standings.

WIth GSX-R1000s leading the way in BSB, it couldn’t be a better start the iconic GSX-R range’s 25th anniversary, as the domination continues in America and on the world stage too.

In AMA Jake Zemke holds a slightly narrower lead for the Michael Jordan Motorsports team, but crucially heads a Suzuki top three lock-out in the series standings with Tommy Hayden just three points behind and teammate Blake Young trailing Zemke by just 15 points in the series standings.

On the world stage, Alstare Suzuki’s Leon Haslam has been the man to beat from the very first round of the series. Challenging and taking race wins from the first race at Philip Island in Australia, no other rider has been so consistent, giving Haslam a three point advantage over Max Biaggi after four rounds of the series.

WIth BSB back at Cadwell Park on 23rd May, AMA visiting Infineon Raceway on 15th and 16th May and World Superbike back out at Kylami in South Africa on 16th May, the teams and riders will be doing their utmost to keep GSX-R at the front of the pack and at the top of the series standings.
