EWC 2019-2020


Team Suzuki Press Office – June 19.

New Suzuki Endurance Racing Team rider Xavier Simeon tested the 2020 GSX-R1000 EWC bike alongside team-mates Etienne Masson and Gregg Black under more-relaxed COVID-19 safe-distancing rules at Le Vigeant in France and talks about joining the team following lockdown in this new video produced by Suzuki Moto France.

During the two-day test for the riders and the SERT crew at the Circuit du Val de Vienne, 255km south of the team’s headquarters at Le Mans – their first together since the pre-Le Mans official EWC test in March before the Coronavirus pandemic forced a global lockdown - all three riders and team members were able to restart where they left off with fine-tuning of the machine along with testing new Dunlop tyres in preparation for the 43rd edition of the 24 Heures Motos at the end of August; an event that will be held under closed doors for the first time in its history.

Following the test, Team Manager Damien Saulnier said: “Xavier Simeon has fitted into the team perfectly. He combines efficiency with good humour. All three of our riders provide similar feedback and analysis, which speeds up preparation. They get on very well and have a positive dynamic. But the best part of the weekend was being back amid the sounds and the atmosphere of racing.”
