 Press Releases

  • Team Suzuki Press Office – June 10.

    Michael Dunlop raced his 2017 Bennetts Suzuki GSX-R1000 to victory in Friday’s Senior TT, taking the win in the most-prestigious race of the event, with a best-lap of 132.903mph.

    The Senior TT - which was restarted after a red flag - saw Dunlop lead from the off after making some set-up changes to his new GSX-R1000 Superbike. He had pulled-out a lead of two seconds by Ramsey, and extended it to three seconds at the Bungalow, before posting a standing-start lap of 132.292mph. He then set the best lap of the race on lap two, with a speed of 132.903mph.

    After the pit-stop, the Northern Irishman managed his lead at the front, controlling the gap to Peter Hickman in second place, eventually taking the win by over 13 seconds.

    Dunlop had been strong on the all-new machine every time he went out, topping the qualifying times despite the bad weather and lack of track time around the 37.73-mile Mountain course. He was then leading the Superbike race before retiring with a technical issue, although he still set the fastest lap of the race.

    He recorded a sixth-place finish in the Superstock race - despite just one lap of practice and a lack of set-up time hampering his performance - but took his 15th TT victory in the event-closing Senior race.


    Michael Dunlop:

    "The bike never missed a beat. We had the problem in the Superbike race, and if it wasn't for that, we could have had two wins with the big girl. But we're here with a brand-new motorbike and the boys have worked hard to get us to this point, and in that race, she never missed a beat. Steve, all the team, put so much effort in and people won't understand how far we've come. We've made the impossible possible. I could have gone faster, but it was important to get to the finish. This potential's been coming. If I'd had this bike at the North West 200 I think that would have been a different story, too. But we've won the Senior TT, what more can we say?"

    Steve Hicken - Team Manager:

    "That's why we came here. We couldn't have any other aim than winning. As we've said all week, it's taken a lot of hard work to get here as the only team in the paddock with a brand-new bike; and we've seen others struggle. It was a shame about Saturday, when we were looking like we could have taken the Superbike win as well, but we learnt from it and made the right changes for today and this is the race everyone wants. And when you consider how early the bike is in its development, it's an even bigger achievement and it shows there's more to come. But we have to also say a big congratulations and thank you to Michael, as without him and his input, feedback and speed around here, this wouldn't have been possible."


    Senior TT race result: 1. Michael Dunlop – Bennetts Suzuki GSX-R1000 - (1:09:24.711),2. Peter Hickman (+13.320), 3. Dean Harrison (+10.185).
     
  • Road racing success continues for the new, 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000, as Team Yoshimura Suzuki’s Toni Elias sped away from several crashes behind him to capture victory in Sunday’s MotoAmerica Motul Superbike Race 2 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Teammate Roger Hayden, who earned Superpole the previous day, finished second putting the Yoshimura-prepped GSX-R1000s in first and second at the checkered flag. Hayden and Elias swapped the lead numerous times, and the final order marked the third time this season that Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing riders have finished 1-2.

    The four-mile, 14-turn road course puts a premium on power and top speed and the new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 demonstrated its capabilities in its first visit to one of the premier road racing circuits in the country. Hayden won Saturday’s Superpole for the second time this season, turning in a blistering time of 2:12.864.

    During Saturday afternoon’s Superbike Race 1, Elias made a great charge from 10th on the grid to be in the top three by the second corner. Engaged in a tight, three-way battle for the lead, Toni tried to exploit the draft on the final straight to the finish, but came up short by just 5-1000ths of a second, marking one the closest finishes in series history.

    The entire weekend’s race schedule ran under sunny and warm conditions drawing a big crowd to the classic Wisconsin circuit to witness the GSX-R1000’s excellent performance. Elias’ win was a series leading fourth of the season and expanded his lead in the series standings to 14 points, Hayden is a close third with 140 points

    Racing will continue this June 23rd- 25th at Utah Motorsports Campus for Round Five of the MotoAmerica Road Racing Championship series
  • (BREA, CA) May 30, 2017 – Hayden Gillim rode to victory on his Cycle World Suzuki RM-Z40 Saturday night at the Springfield TT American Flat Track AFT Singles National at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. Gillim had a perfect night, being fast qualifier, winning both his qualifying and then leading every lap of the national final in front of a worldwide live broadcast on FansChoice.TV.

    In the Main, Gillim built his lead to nearly three seconds at one point in the race, but ran a more conservative pace in the closing laps and won by a margin of 1.902 seconds. Gillim accomplished the feat in spite of forgetting to tighten his front brake lever. He was forced to improvise and hold up the brake lever with his thumb.

    The win is Gillim's second AFT Singles triumph, backing up last year's victory in the Peoria TT.

    "Tonight's been an awesome night," Gillim said. "My Suzuki RM-Z450 was working great all night; I don't think I touched anything since we pulled it out of the van. I probably should have tightened up the front brake lever… As soon as I went out on track (for the Main), my front brake lever went loose, and it just dropped straight down. I was having to hold it up with my thumb all race. Somehow, I was able to manage it although there were a couple of close moments. I don't know how I was able to do it without these guys passing me."

    It's well known to racing fans that Gillim is closely related to racing royalty. It seems only fitting that Gillim stood atop of the podium for the Springfield TT 15 years after his cousins Nicky, Tommy, and Roger Hayden swept the podium in the historic race in 2002, particularly in the wake of Nicky's tragic passing earlier this week.

    Gillim dedicated his victory to both Nicky and his late brother Ethan, who passed away in a racing incident in 2007: "Seeing Nicky, Tommy, and Roger put it up on the podium, all three in one night, that's always made me want to get here and get this win. Team 95… this one is for my little brother, and it's for Nicky too. This is for them."

    Gillim now turns his attention back to his full-time road racing gig aboard his Cycle World Suzuki GSX-R1000 and races next weekend at the MotoAmerica Superbike event in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

  • Chino, CA (June 5, 2017) – Toni Elias took a hard-fought victory in Sunday’s MotoAmerica Motul Superbike Race 2 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. Teammate Roger Hayden, who earned Superpole on Saturday, finished second in Sunday’s race putting the 2017 Yoshimura Suzuki GSX-R1000 in first and second at the checkered flag.

    It marked the third time this season that Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing has finished 1-2.

    Elias’ win was a series leading fourth of the season and expanded his lead in the series standings to 14 points (160-146) over Cameron Beaubier after eight races. Hayden is a close third with 140 points.

    For Elias, the win was especially memorable since his mom and dad came over from Spain to watch their first MotoAmerica event in person.

    On Saturday Hayden won Superpole for the second time this season, turning in a time of 2:12.864. The four-mile, 14-turn road course puts a premium on power and top speed and the new 2017 Suzuki GSX-R1000 came through with flying colors in its first run at one of the premier road racing circuits in the country.

    “Road America is usually not my strongest track,” Hayden admitted. “but the team gave me a great bike in qualifying and I was able to put it on the pole.”

    Hayden was strong and sprinted to an early lead and led the most laps in Saturday’s race, but ultimately finished the day in a close third, just 0.153 seconds out of the lead.

    Elias again made a great charge from 10th on the grid to finish second. He pulled up in the draft on the final straight, but came up short by just 5-1000ths of a second, marking one the closest finishes in series history.

    Sunday’s race ran under sunny and warm conditions drawing a big crowd to the classic Wisconsin circuit. Hayden and Elias once again put their Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superbikes up front and swapped the lead numerous times. The race was red flagged with two laps to go due to a competitor’s bike spilling oil going into the first turn.

    Elias was leading at the time, giving him the victory.

    “It’s not the way we like to win,” Elias said afterwards, “but I am grateful for the victory and to build our points lead. Roger was very strong today and we had a good race and were trying to break away. It was wonderful to have my family here from Spain this weekend. I want to dedicate my win to Nicky Hayden and the entire Hayden family.”

    The series next moves to the Utah Motorsports Complex in Tooele, Utah, for the Championship of Utah on June 23-25
