Davide Brivio, Team Manager of Team Suzuki Ecstar, has confirmed that Hamamatsu factory Suzuki are in discussions with EG 0,0 Marc VDS with a view to supplying the Independent Team with GSX-RR machinery from 2019.
Speaking live in pitlane, the Italian sounded positive about the prospect:
“Yeah we are talking to them and it looks like it’s going pretty well,” he confirmed. “But still, we have to wait probably until Jerez for some sort of final decision and yeah, we are talking about that. We hope to be able to get more Suzukis on the grid.”
And it’s not just the team’s record on track that’s attractive, Brivio says, it’s also their talent promotion – with the Belgian outfit, in partnership with Monlau Competicion, fielding more than ten riders in different categories of motorcycle racing.
“VDS is very interesting, they have a great a program with the younger riders and this will also be very beneficial for us.”
