Over the last several years, Suzuki has been utilizing the state of the art technology derived from MotoGP racing in the development of new motorcycles. The benefits now expand well beyond engine and chassis refinements to the development of a new high-performance motorcycle oil line: ECSTAR Suzuki Genuine Oil.
Tyler Scott powered through extreme heat Friday at Circuit of The Americas, in Austin, Texas, to earn provisional pole position during MotoAmerica Supersport Qualifying One. Riding his Vision Wheel M4 ECSTAR Suzuki GSX-R750 in ambient temperatures of 106 degrees F, Scott covered the 3.4-mile course in 2:14.435 to top the field of 36 riders.
Championship point leader Xavi Fores was just a tick behind Scott with a second-best 2:14.567 on his Warhorse HSBK Racing Ducati Panigale V2.
Fores currently holds an 86-point lead in the Championship, and if he finishes Saturday’s Race One with a 75-point lead, he clinches the 2023 crown.
Earning the third and final spot on the provisional front row was Scott’s new teammate, 18-year-old Canadian Torin Collins. A regular in the FIM JuniorGP World Championship, Collins recorded a lap time of 2:15.876 in his first day of MotoAmerica action.
