Suzuki return to MotoGP 2015

http://www.x-spirit.co.uk

After a three-year hiatus Suzuki will return to MotoGPcompetition next season with a new team—and a 1000cc prototype. The yet-to-be named machine is in the final stages of development by Suzuki’s overhauled and now fully in-house Hamamatsu, Japan-based factory racing squad.

And this time Suzuki says it’s getting serious. Despite years of success in both Superbike and Supersport racing with its GSX-R line of sportbikes, the Japanese motorsport giant hasn’t been able to transfer that success to GP racing since the series moved from two-stroke to four-stroke equipment 12 years ago. In fact the brand has recorded just a handful of podium finishes and only one race win—in the rain at Le Mans.

F1: Hamilton vs Rosberg

Did you know this is the first time since 1996 that the F1 title battle has gone down to the final race and involves just two drivers from the same team…

Countdown to this weekend’s crucial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is well underway… T-Minus 3 days! Who is your pick?

This is really going to come down to car reliability, but Rosberg proved that he has the staying power, but he has to hope more than anything else, that Hamilton does have mechanical issues.

Who knows what will happen?!
