Team Suzuki CN Challenge Heading To Suzuka 8-Hours With Special Mission

© 2024, Roadracing World Publishing, Inc. From a press release issued By Suzuki Motor Corporation:

Editorial Note: This effort is being led by Shinichi Sahara, the former Suzuki MotoGP Project Leader.

Suzuki Motor Corporation will participate in the 45th Suzuka 8 Hours Endurance Race 2024 which will be held at the Suzuka Circuit as one of the 2024 FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC), from 19 to 21 July by using Sustainable Fuel and multiple sustainable items.

Suzuki will use the 40% bio-sourced Sustainable Fuel, certified by the FIM (International Motorcycling Federation). Since this is not the official fuel of the EWC, Suzuki will participate in the Experimental Class, a category set for experimental purposes. Besides Sustainable Fuel, development of new sustainable technologies will also take place including muffler, tires, oil, fairings, and brakes which will be provided by our sponsor partners, who have agreed with our challenge, involved in the development and supported this project.

The team is named “Team SUZUKI CN CHALLENGE” and is mainly composed of Suzuki employees. Yoshimura Japan is working together in a collaborative partnership. Additionally, along with all our partners, we will strive to overcome issues to achieve our goal.

The purpose of the participation is to accelerate development of environmental performance technologies through participating physically in the demanding conditions of the endurance racing. By verifying valuable information gathered through this participation, we will discover higher goals and promote feeding back of technologies to our future production models.
