Kevin Schwantz To Make Guest Apperance At GIXXER Cup Finale

Posted:

The penultimate round of the new 2015 one-make Suzuki Gixxer Cup Championship at Madras Motor Race Track at Chennai in India provided another weekend of close and exciting racing; along with the announcement that Suzuki‰Ûªs 1993 500cc Grand Prix World Champion Kevin Schwantz will appear at the final round later this month.

The Suzuki Gixxer Cup, which is organised by the MMSC and approved by the FMSCI using the popular Gixxer SF range of 150cc production motorcycles, saw new part-upgrades including improved braking, handling and performance this weekend that gave positive feedback from the riders involved and moving the development project forward.

The first Open Race, for riders over 23-years-old, saw the top contenders battle-it-out for six intense laps with Ananth Raj taking a hard-earned victory from Abhishek V with a gap of just 0.09 seconds. The championship standings remained the same with Ananth retaining his lead over Abhishek, while the fight for the third position still remains wide open with three riders within five points of each other.

The Novice category (under 23-years-old) also had its share of excitement in both races where it was impossible to predict the winner until the final corner: Amarnath Menon finally crossed the finish-line by just 0.068 seconds from Vishwadev Muraleedharan, while in the second race, Vishwadev got the better of his rival on the last corner of the last lap. The championship is now led by Vishwadev with Amarnath just two-points behind.

‰ÛÏWe are extremely excited to announce our next and final round for the 2015 season at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida." Mr. Atul Gupta, Executive Vice President, SMIPL, said. "Not only does this bring the races and excitement to northern India, we will also have the presence of the legendary racing icon Kevin Schwantz (www.kevin-schwantz.com) ‰ÛÒ the 500cc Grand Prix World Champion of 1993 and a die-hard Team Suzuki rider for decades!

"Our racers, customers and fans will have an incredible opportunity to meet and interact with one of the world‰Ûªs greatest motorcycle racers ever!‰Û
