Former BSB champ to wow crowds on 200mph machine
MULTIPLE British Superbike Champion John Reynolds will ride Loris Capirossi's Suzuki GSV-R MotoGP machine, in a special parade session at the Brands Hatch BSB festival on the 7th and 8th August, where Suzuki will celebrate the GSX-R range's 25th anniversary.
Reynolds, who most notably cliched the BSB title in 2004 on his Rizla Suzuki GSX-R1000, became the first BSB champion to win on a 1000cc in-line four cylinder machine, before retiring at the end of 2005.
Still heavily involved in racing, working as Suzuki GB race director, Reynolds commented, "The GSX-R range is naturally very special to me. I clinched my last championship on one, but it's also the bike I have the fondest memories of. I'm absolutely delighted to be given the honour of riding the GSV-R800 at Brands Hatch for the celebrations and can't wait to put the old leathers back on and lap in front of the crowds again."
TT star Cameron Donald took a spin on Capirossi's GSV-R at this year's Isle of Man TT, hitting 202mph along Sulby straight on his 'parade lap'.
