Suzuki announces 2016 Gixxer Cup

Snapshot: Suzuki Gixxer Cup returns for its second season in partnership with Red Bull for road to Rookies 2016

Suzuki Motorcycle India, a subsidiary of Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan, has announced the return of its popular Gixxer Cup for its second season. The Company has launched the Gixxer Cup last year and through the 5 rounds, it became a platform for aspirant racers in India and a racing championship.



In 2015, the Championship ended with the presence of Kevin Schwantz, legendary racer and 500cc World Champion (1993). In 2016, the Company will begin the season in partnership with Red Bull for the Road to Rookies Cup 2016. The Championship has been approved by FMSCI (The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India) and it will be organized by the Madras Motor Sports Club (one of the oldest motorsports clubs in the country). It will run as supporting races along with the 5 rounds of the India National Motorcycle Racing Championship from the months of June to October 2016.



Mr. Satoshi Uchida, Managing Director, SMIPL, said “We saw a hugely positive response after entering the Indian racing arena last year, and clearly felt the need to only improve upon the laurels from our first season of the Gixxer Cup. This year, we bring Red Bull Road to Rookies Cup, a world-renowned platform, to the young Indian riders for the first time, while sticking to the Gixxer Cup format alongside. We can’t wait for the season of exciting racing to begin!”
