The third round of the 2017 #suzukiasianchallenge (SAC) has kicked-off at Suzuka Circuit in Mie, Japan, the home circuit of SAC General Manager, Yukio Kagayama, many of the official sponsors; and Suzuki Motor Corporation who has put this exciting single-platform series in place.
This weekend, the SAC organisers have also invited 2015 SAC Suzuka Race 2 winner, Takeru Murase along to the event. Murase currently races in the All Japan Road Race Championship in the J-GP2 class, riding the Suzuki GSX-R600-based J-GP2 machine.
Suzuka is the longest track for SAC the five-round season, with a length of 5.821km, with 18 turns and two long straights of 1000 and 800 metres. It is said to be one of the most difficult tracks in the world to master, with two different characteristics.
For Suzuka, the SUZUKI GSX-R150 machine has had several modifications with Yoshimura's new exhaust system, RCB's new rear suspension, as well as new engine oil with MOTUL coming on board as the official lubricant supplier for SAC.
These modifications have given the riders more options in setting-up the machine, as they spent the initial practice sessions getting used to the track as well as to the new exhaust and rear suspension performances.
