SUZUKI is calling a family gathering for its famous GSX-R range of Super-sport race replicas at Brands Hatch this summer – and it promises to be one helluva party.
Around 10,000 GSX-R fans from all across Europe are expected to descend on the famous track in Kent on Friday August 3, just one-week after it hosts a round of the World Superbike Championship.
The GSX-R is known for its extreme performance and ability to leave the competition far behind. Keeping true to the GSX-R brand values, this Festival will leave all other biker parties in its tracks as it celebrates the GSX-R history, which stretches back to 1985.
The Festival is open to all, but will have special appeal to GSX-R owners, Suzuki fans and riders of high performance Superbikes. Anyone with an appreciation for the GSX-R and its awesome on road and track performance is welcome.
GSX-R riders visiting the festival will be invited to enjoy parade laps around the famous Brands Hatch Indy circuit. Numbers will be limited, so riders will be encouraged to register early on the day.
The performance junkies who visit the Festival will get their fix at the concours event, which will feature some of the most spectacular GSX-R bikes ever built. You can expect everything from chrome laden Superbikes to turbo-charged specials in this line-up.
There will also be live music on stage, retail stalls, celebrity interviews, off-road riding with the DRZ Sensation and special demonstration laps of the track by UK British Superbike Championship riders John Crawford on his GSX-R750, John Crockford on his GSX-R1000 and Karl Harris on his GSX-R600. James Hutchins, the Junior Superstock rider, will also be on hand to give encouragement to young riders hoping to make it in racing.
The Suzuki Team Performance Riding School will be holding classes to give expert tuition on GSX-R600 bikes and advice to budding racetrack stars.
To cap the day off, there will be displays from European Stunt Champion Kevin Carmichael taking the crowds breath away as he defies the laws of physics on his specially modified GSX-R1000.
And that’s just the start. Lots more activities and big name celebrities will be revealed closer to the event – so watch this space.
Tickets cost £8 each in advance or £10 on the gate, children under 16-years of age free. So book now, call the Brands Hatch ticket hotline on 08705-125250
