SR75 SUZUKI BATTLE TORRID CONDITIONS

SR75 SUZUKI BATTLE TORRID CONDITIONS TO COMPLETE WESTON BEACH RACE

Back to news

SR75 World Team Suzuki contested this year's Weston Beach race, and fielded experienced motocross legend Nev Bradshaw after a last minute deal to campaign the team's RM-Z250, shod with a special 100 red plate to mark the brand's 100th anniversary.

Aboard an RM-Z450 Luke Oldfield completed the team's lineup for the gruelling three-hour endurance race.

Despite being famed for multiple Arenacross successes, the team is also no stranger to beach racing and have recorded top-six finishes at Weston in the past.

From 1000 starters, Bradshaw brought the RM-Z250 home in 24th place, an excellent achievement considering the advantage 450 machines gained on the long straight and its lack of modifications for the event, such as a larger fuel tank. Oldfield ended the race in 31st place.

With thousands of spectators attending the SR75 Suzuki team also took the show to the paddock, with a display of race bikes and road-going machinery, plus a Suzuki Swift.

Team boss Geoff Walker commented, "I want to say a huge thank you to Suzuki GB and all of our sponsors for the continued support that enables us to go racing. Luke [Oldfield] returned to Weston for the second time with the SR75 Suzuki team and rode the RM-Z450, which was totally dependable throughout, despite the very testing wet and sandy conditions.

"It was great to get Nev [Bradshaw] onboard last minute. He's got plenty of experience and was a great fit for the team, and he did a great job on the little 250."
