This year marks 30 years of performance heritage for the Suzuki GSX-R sportbike. To celebrate the brand and the owners who’ve helped make it so popular, Suzuki Motor of America is hosting “GSX-R 30 Years of Performance” events throughout the summer — 10 Anniversary events total — with the first event set for April 11-12 at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas. Coinciding with the inaugural race of the 2015 MotoAmerica Road Racing Championship series, as well as the RedBull GP of the Americas, this event finds the perfect setting at one of America’s finest racing venues.
Riders of Suzuki GSX-R motorcycles, and all Suzuki motorcycles, scooters, and ATVs, are welcome to visit the Suzuki Hospitality area at the COTA circuit where they and a guest can watch the racing action and talk Suzuki motorcycles and racing with like-minded enthusiasts and Suzuki staff. To enter this exclusive Suzuki Hospitality Area, riders need to present either a Suzuki vehicle key, or their insurance or registration card that shows ownership.
Those fans riding their Suzuki motorcycles to the event are encouraged to plan their route through Waco, Texas, roughly 100 miles north of the event site. Barger’s Allsports, Suzuki’s authorized dealer in Waco, will host the first Suzuki Pit Stop in conjunction with the MotoAmerica Road Racing Championship on Saturday, April 11 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Suzuki owners will be greeted with a free fuel fill-up station and quick service check, plus they and a guest can enjoy food and drinks before finishing their ride to Austin, Texas.
“We look forward to hearing the stories of Suzuki riders — especially GSX-R riders — during this ‘30 Years of Performance’ celebration,” said Steve Bortolamedi, Communications Manager for SMAI. “And we want to hear from Suzuki riders nationwide, so we’ll host similar events in conjunction with MotoAmerica races throughout the summer. The next ‘30 Years of Performance’ event after Austin will take place April 18-19 at Road Atlanta, a favorite Suzuki venue.”
Suzuki is eager to celebrate the 30-year tradition of “Own the Racetrack” GSX-R sportbike performance at events all summer. More event-schedule details will be announced soon.
