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.

Really refreshing to see Lorenzo has still got some fight in him, and gave Marquez a damn good fight, but Marquez has the guts to push to the end, and ended up the victor. Great display of riding by Rossi to move from 10th to 3rd- one can only wonder what might have been had he been on pole.

Ok, now we know how the script goes, but at the moment, Marquez has this thing won already, no? The only thing that will stop this guy is an injury…. oh, wait a second, he broke his leg at the beginning of the season….. This is the future of racing. Move over Pedrosa and Lorenzo, and maybe The Dr. Give a factory ride to Espargaro, Bradl and Bautista!
