BENNETTS SUZUKI CONFIDENT AFTER SPANISH TESTS


Team Suzuki Press Office – March 6.

Bennetts Suzuki concluded a positive five-day test in the south of Spain in Cartagena and Almeria with the all-new Suzuki GSX-R1000 as preparations continue for the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship and international road racing season.

With the opening round of the BSB championship less-than a month away, the team had plenty of work to be carried out, including assessing the full potential of the already-impressive base-package from Suzuki.

Taylor Mackenzie, who returns to the Superbike class in 2017, spent most of the test exploring the bike's potential, running a number of standard components; including a standard engine. The 24-year-old completed an impressive number of laps to give important feedback on the bike's strengths and also work on a base-setting he was comfortable with.

He was joined by Richard Cooper for the full five days of the test, as Cooper and the team looked to better-understand the bike and the direction to take with set-up of his Superstock GSX-R machine. For three days at Cartagena the team made big adjustments to the bike, assessing how it responded and reacted to the changes, before settling on a comfortable base set-up.
