TEAM SUZUKI has recruited Guy Martin to ride a Katana at the Spa Bikers’ Classic four-hour endurance race at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium on July 1.

Martin is also joined by Pete ‘Boasty’ Boast, who’s no stranger to classic racing and has claimed British and European flat track titles with Suzuki.

Martin has had a fair bit of success with Suzuki, taking GSX-Rs to victory and podium finishes that Ulster Grand Prix, Oliver’s Mount, and the Isle of Man TT.

Team Classic Suzuki team principal, Steve Wheatman, said of Martin and Boast’s inclusion in the team:

'We’re really pleased to be welcoming Guy and Pete to the team for this round of the Classic Endurance series, both have strong links with Suzuki and both love their classic racing. The Spa Classic is an excellent event that is well-known across Europe. It’s always well-attended, with plenty going on alongside the four-hour race for fans to enjoy. But of course, the four-race is why we’re going, and after the disappointment of Donington we want a good result. I also want to thank Pete Littlewood from B&B Motorcycles for his help and involvement in the project, and we’re looking forward to being a part of such a special weekend.'

The Spa Classic takes place from 1-2 July at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium, with Team Classic Suzuki taking part in the four-hour race that starts at 20:00 on Saturday.
