Team Suzuki Racing is publishing a new souvenir MX Special Magazine this week, celebrating its history in World Motocross from the 1970s to 2017.
Suzuki has claimed 30 individual World Championship titles and 32 Manufacturer titles; and the magazine highlights some of the riders, machines and people who have made this possible since 1970 when Belgian rider Joel Robert claimed the 250cc World Championship title for Suzuki.
In this issue, Suzuki’s long-time Motocross GP Manager Sylvain Geboers talks about his memories, along with Suzuki’s 1991 World Motocross Champion – and the most successful rider in history with 10 World MX titles - Stefan Everts, who took over Suzuki’s Grand Prix operation in 2016.
There’s also some iconic RM two-stroke and RM-Z four-stroke machinery, plus some of the riders who helped develop the machines and win races and championships, featured in the magazine that will be free to download at www.suzuki-racing.com in the coming days..
