If all goes according to plan, the 2001 Suzuki GSX-R1000 will make its racing debut this weekend during a CCS event at Homestead Miami Speedway in Homestead, Florida.
John Hopkins and Grant Lopez are scheduled to share a Team Valvoline EMGO Suzuki GSX-R1000 at Homestead, with Hopkins racing in the GTO race Sunday morning and Lopez, the track record holder, racing in the final race of the weekend, Expert Unlimited Grand Prix.
With all stock internal engine components, the GSX-R1000 is already matching the power output of the fully developed 840cc GSX-R750s the team competed with in 1999-2000.
