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.
