The Suzuki Speed Racing Team signs Santi Barragán
Santi Barragan’s number 51 will be worn next season in the Suzuki Speed Racing Team
The signing of Santi Barragan by the Suzuki Speed Racing Team, with teammate Adrian
Bonastre, gives the team the energy and youth needed to come forward in the first race
of the Championship of Spain with all the options for the title.
Without a doubt, the style of both riders, the potential of the Suzuki and Dunlop’s good
work will give plenty to talk about this 2013.
Santi Barragán: "I am very excited about the project, I've never ridden a Suzuki, so it's
exciting to face a new challenge. It looks a very balanced bike with which you can do
many things. Last season the team surprised everyone. I personally knew they would be
fast given the quality of the coaching staff and their pilots, but they turned out to be
more powerful than I expected. There are members of the Suzuki Speed Racing Team
that I know and wanted to work with. I can’t wait to ride the GSX-R and see how I get
used to it. There is potential to fight for victory."
Jose Regaña (Team Manager): "We are very pleased that Santi is with us. He is a young
rider, with lot of potential and he can perfectly fit into the team. Santi and Adri will make
a great couple. Their similar way of riding makes me feel confident that he will get used
to the Suzuki GSX-R without any problems. We have all the tools to win, now we just
have to work hard”
