Suzuki have recently confirmed that they will supply eight V-Strom 1000 machines, for marshals and medics to use at the newly reincarnated Eppynt Welsh Road Races.

It’s the latest bit of positive news, in relation to the UK’s newest upcoming roads meeting, which is scheduled to take place from the 3rd to the 5th of August.

Event Sponsorship & Facilities Director, Phil Morris stated about the deal with Suzuki:

“We are extremely grateful to Suzuki for the generosity and support in agreeing to supply machines for the Welsh Road Race in August.

The V-Strom 1000’s will be used by the six travelling marshals and two event doctors, and they are the perfect motorcycles for the task.”

Marketing Manager for Suzuki Great Britain, Rob Cooper added:

“We’re delighted to be able to offer our support for the event later this year. We have enjoyed great road racing success as a brand, most recently, of course with Michael Dunlop in last year’s Senior TT on the new GSX-R1000.

But we also recognise the important roles marshals and doctors play at these events, and by providing a fleet of V-Strom 1000’s, we will be equipping them with the right tools to do their jobs.”
