Team SUZUKI ECSTAR enjoyed an incredible experience when they joined Suzuki Thailand in a pre-race celebration with Suzuki fans before the weekend’s inaugural MotoGP of Thailand.
Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins joined more than 200 fans, and Suzuki Thailand’s Representative Director of Thai Suzuki Motor Co., Ltd., Masayoshi Ito and his team, at a special fun event; signing autographs, taking part in a Go-Kart event and taking in the atmosphere and support of the Thai fans.
Said Mr. Ito: “I hope everyone could enjoy this meeting because you are all a special part of the Suzuki family. To have a chance to get close to our special guests, Team Suzuki Ecstar riders Andrea Iannone and Alex Rins, before they return to the world premiere MotoGP.” Mr. Ito also thanked all who attended the event.
Iannone, who participated in the Go-Kart race with 10 dealers, unleashed the madness in front of about 300 people, not only competing in the karting race but also practising as Suzuki’s ambassador in the delivery of the trophies and signing Suzuki promotional materials for more than 200 people.
In Sunday’s MotoGP, both riders rode hard, Rins racing his GSX-RR to sixth and Iannone 11th in the hot and humid conditions at Chang International Circuit in Buriram; and with a huge amount of support from the fans at this event.
