Loris Capirossi’s Moto GP bike to lap at IOM TT

Loris Capirossi’s Moto GP bike to lap at IOM TT

Suzuki Motor Corporation has confirmed that Loris Capirossi’s Moto GP bike will complete a lap of the TT Course following this year’s Dainese Senior TT. The bike will be ridden on a special demonstration lap by the double TT winner Cameron Donald.

The bike is the same Suzuki GSV-R800 that took Loris Capirossi to his 300th Grand Prix race at the opening round of the 2010 world championship in Qatar in April. Loris will be on hand to dispense some tips on riding the bike as he will be joining the Suzuki parade on a GSX-R1000 that is timed to take place shortly before Cameron’s lap.

The activity is part of Suzuki Motor Corporation’s celebrations of 50 years of International Racing at this year’s Isle of Man TT Races – the venue where it all began in 1960.

Suzuki GB is the Official Motorcycle Partner for this year’s TT Races and will be providing the Travelling Marshals bikes. Suzuki is also supporting an exhibition of Suzuki history that will be held at the Manx Museum throughout the race fortnight and is backing the famous Ramsey Sprint events on Sunday 6th and Tuesday 8th, the Laxey Moddey Dhoo meeting on 10th and a parade of Suzuki machines on Senior Race day.

Geoff Corkish, MBE, MHK, Political Member for Isle of Man Tourism commented:
“We are thrilled to share this anniversary with Suzuki and we are very grateful to the support that Suzuki has given the TT Races throughout the company’s long history of competing on the Isle of Man. Many fans will be thrilled at the chance of seeing a Moto GP bike on the Mountain Course for the first time and we also look forward to welcoming Loris Capirossi to the Isle of Man for his first experience of the TT.”
