Crescent Suzuki Ready For Aussie Test

Posted:

Crescent Suzuki has completed its final technical preparations at its base ahead of the Superbike World Championship pre-season tests at Phillip Island in Australia next week.

Some 21 freight cases, two flights and 17,000kms are all that stand between the UK-based team and the start of the 2015 World Championship season, and racers Alex Lowes and Randy de Puniet are eager to get down to business aboard their Yoshimura-powered GSX-Rs.

Located 130kms south of Victoria‰Ûªs capital city Melbourne, the 4,445m Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit has held both the official pre-season test and the opening round of WSBK competition for the past seven years, remaining a favourite for most championship participants. The circuit‰Ûªs 12 iconic corners, and cliff-top vistas over the Bass Strait, provide breath-taking racing and views for the avid fans while the combination of high-speed turns, long straights, elevation changes and its fast and flowing nature create perfect testing conditions for the GSX-R1000.

With the last two days of pre-season testing due to commence at the Victoria circuit on Monday February 16th, Lowes and de Puniet will be on track for two, two-hour sessions at 11:00 hrs local time to put their Suzuki challengers through their paces ahead of the opening contest of 2015 on Sunday February 22nd.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really looking forward to getting the 2015 World Superbike season started with the official tests at Phillip Island." Lowes stated. "It‰Ûªs a track and event that I really enjoyed last year so I can‰Ûªt wait to get out there and continue the progress we have been making with the GSX-R and the Crescent Suzuki team over the winter.

"I‰Ûªm feeling really calm and positive after the European tests last month and hope to transfer that to the track when we get to Australia.‰Û
