Suzuki Retains Title Sponsorship Rights to Shootout
Suzuki Canada has returned as Title Sponsor of the 2009 Suzuki Canadian Fastest Streetbike Shootout, being held on Saturday June 20 at Grand Bend Motorplex.
"Having the honour of welcoming Suzuki Canada back is wonderful," said Event Organizer Graeme Jones. "There’s really no better choice for Title Sponsor of this race. The Suzuki Hayabusa has been the dominant motorcycle every year in the history of this event."
Suzuki racers currently hold all Pro Street records in North America, including the current Canadian Fastest Streetbike Shootout records of 7.441-seconds and 198.89 MPH. Suzuki has been on top of the world sportbike drag racing scene since the debut of the Hayabusa in 1999.
"We are more than pleased to announce our return as the Title Sponsor of the Canadian Fastest Streetbike Shootout," added Mark Jeffrey, GM of Suzuki Canada’s Motorcycle, ATV and Marine division. "It is no secret that in the world of motorcycle drag racing the name Suzuki is synonymous with speed, track records and winners."
Suzuki’s 2009 sportbike lineup once again features the legendary GSX-R family (1000, 750 and 600 models) as well as a reworked Hayabusa that features better aerodynamics, an improved power-to-weight ratio and increased power – all of which will result in quicker elapsed times on the quarter-mile.
Watch for some of the fastest Suzukis in Canada and the U.S. to show up for a stab at the Championship during the Seventh annual Suzuki Canadian Fastest Streetbike Shootout on June 20. For more info visit www.canadiandragbike.com/shootout.
