Crescent Suzuki race team has revealed its 2012 GSX-R1000 race bike for the upcoming World Superbike Championship season, as wellas confirm increased co-title sponsorship from bespoke Foreign Exchange Solutions company, Fixi.
The blue and white 2012 GSX-R1000 which has been built in collaboration with Japanese tuning company Yoshimura, will be ridden by American John Hopkins and Englishman Leon Camier.
Team Principal Paul Denning:
“The team has done a stunning job to prepare the new GSX-R for this level of competition – the attention to detail is faultless and I think that this will be the most advanced GSX-R ever to grace a racetrack! Yoshimura’s hard work and proactive attitude to engine development has also enabled us to be as well prepared for Phillip Island as we can be. John and Leon are ready, the team is very motivated and we will put everything into competing at the best level we possibly can!
I would like to thank Richard Wynn and his co-directors at Fixi for their continued and expanded support. I would also like to thank Ronald Kabella and the team at Motorex and all our partners for their commitment to Crescent Fixi Suzuki’s assault on the World Superbike Championship. Finally, thanks to all at new team partner Sign Language for completing the graphic-wrapped livery so expertly and quickly.”
Fixi Plc CEO Richard Wynn:
“Fixi provides bespoke, state of the art foreign exchange services to the institutional and professional marketplace and we are no strangers to Crescent, having supported them in the British Superbike Championship last year. Having our brand exposed globally is extremely good timing for us – we have offices in London, Chicago and more recently Singapore, and, through our innovative technology, we are able to reach out to clients and partnerships in all the leading global financial centers. The World Superbike Championship offers us a wonderful opportunity not only to entertain our existing clients, but also to enhance our marketing strategy. Last year provided us with one of the most exciting finales any Superbike series has witnessed and we have no doubt that the Crescent Suzuki team will do a sterling job in representing our brand in the World Superbike Championship.”
