Team Suzuki MXGP Suzuki General Manager Stefan Everts and Senior Consultant Sylvain Geboers met Suzuki President (COO) Toshihiro Suzuki at Suzuki Motor Corporation’s Hamamatsu Headquarters in Japan this week, before travelling to this weekend’s MXGP second round in Thailand.
Mr Suzuki had taken time from his busy schedule to meet the Team Suzuki MXGP bosses to thank them for their many Suzuki victories and to wish them further success in the future.
Everts said: “I was surprised and delighted to meet Mr Suzuki. He is a big motocross fan and follows our races closely. We talked about our history of success and our family records; both Sylvain’s and my father’s era too. He sees Team Suzuki, not just as a racing organisation, and both of us respect the importance of its inheritance and succession; and that is very encouraging.”
Geboers added: “It was good to know that Mr Suzuki was very interested and knowledgeable about the Team Suzuki MXGP success history. Myself, Stefan and the team will continue the fight to add to that history.”
