Suzuki secure first british supermoto championship win

TAS Suzuki rider David McKee came away from round one of the British Supermoto Championship held at the three sisters circuit near Wigan, in high spirits on Easter Monday, after securing two class wins and a third place finish to leave the event with the SM2 championship lead.

David, who has been running at the front of the Irish championship on a virtually standard Suzuki RM-Z450, went into the weekend full of optimism, proving his ability by running high up the order amongst the open class riders in all three races.

Commenting on a near-perfect weekend, McKee said, “I knew we had a good chance this weekend, but the pace of the RM-Z450SMR still amazes me. I had a fall in the first race, but still managed to restart and challenge the open class riders. In race two I got the hole-shot and lead the factory riders for several laps before the larger capacity machines made their impact. However, we still managed to win the class and leave with the SM2 championship lead, so we can be very happy with our performance”.

Commenting on Suzuki’s first British Supermoto win, Suzuki’s Hadrian Garle commented, “What a great start to a championship campaign. David has ridden extremely well already this season and has proven the potential of a relatively unknown bike in Supermoto. With the TAS teams support, there is a very strong possibility of more results like this throughout the season”.
