More, from a press release issued by Team Suzuki Press Office:


Team Suzuki Press Office – May 31.

Team ECSTAR Suzuki Supersport teenager Sean Dylan Kelly recovered from a high-speed crash yesterday to take third position on his GSX-R600 in today’s second race at the opening round of the 2020 MotoAmerica Championship at Road America, USA.

The 17-year-old, who was in contention for a podium in Saturday’s opening race, showed true form today, despite bruised from his slip-off, to bring home the team’s first podium now that racing started under a closed-circuit environment due to the ongoing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, and under strict social distancing, at the Elkhart Lake venue in Wisconsin.

He said after the race in a TV broadcast: “It’s definitely been a tough day after yesterday, as ultimately I wanted to be on top, but the goal was to be on the podium, so thank you to all the M4 ECSTAR Suzuki team.”

• Superbike riders Toni Elias and Bobby Fong were unlucky to both slide off when they were in challenging positions in the early and mid-parts of the 12-lap MotoAmerica Superbike race.
