Following the news that SR75-Molson Racing will officially represent Suzuki on next year’s Arenacross Tour, the team unveiled its 2016 RM-Z450 colours at the NEC in Birmingham at the weekend, ready for the season opener on January 2.
Running under the official entry ofSR75-Molson Racing Suzuki, the team, headed by Geoff Walker, has previously enjoyed support from Suzuki in the Arenacross Championship, having contested the series with RM-Z450 machines since 2014, clinching two team titles and the 2015 rider championship with Thomas Ramette, whoreturns to defend his title in 2016, alongside teammate Cyrille Coulon.
Suzuki GB marketing manager, Rob Cooper said at the team’s unveiling, "Geoff and his team have a truly enviable reputation in Arenacross racing. Their performances and results against some of the top teams in the series can only be described as a genuineDavid and Goliath feat, so we are honoured and proud to increase our support with official status this season."
Team principal, Geoff Walker, commented,"This is the next stage in the evolution for SR75. We’ve enjoyed technical support from Suzuki over the past two seasons, but to reach an agreement for official team status is great news for both us and the series as a whole. We came and we conquered last season with Thomas on the Suzuki, while Cyrille had a tough championship due to injury, but still finished fourth. With the help of our sponsors and partners we go into the 2016 series stronger and hungrier than ever before with our sights set firmly on championship glory."
The SR75-Molson Racing Suzuki team will commence testing shortly, ready for the first round of the series at Manchester Arena on Jan 2.
