    suzuki Series, not the Tri Series

    Thread Starter: jellywrestler

    the last official Tri Series was in 2012, since then suzuki requested it be called simply the Suzuki Series. two reasons, the word suzuki was being dropped and of course they pay they don't see their name, not hard to work the rest out. secondly, that left the door open to maybe run a fourth...

      Some technical infringements in one new class which were apparently sorted before they went out on track

      His favourite action? What about you Kick were you happy with the weekend?
