Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes join Festival of Speed

Voltcom Crescent Suzuki’s Eugene Laverty and Alex Lowes will join the world motorsport elite at the 2014 Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK this weekend to take part in the famous Hillclimb aboard special race-replica GSX-R1000s.

Laverty and Lowes will both take turns at the 1.87km high-speed course, which runs across the Goodwood House and Estate in West Sussex. They will be running Voltcom Crescent Suzuki race-replica Suzuki GSX-R1000s – which are available from Crescent Motorcycles - and will also be on-hand to meet fans and support team partner Rossetts Commercials.

Voltcom Crescent Suzuki will be present at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from June 27th-29th. After the British festivities, the team will travel on to Portimao in Portugal and then Laguna Seca in California, USA, for the remaining consecutive race weekends ahead of the summer break.

Eugene Laverty:

“This is my fifth consecutive year at the Goodwood Festival of Speed! It’s a fantastic event with all the old cars, bikes and heroes of mine from the past so I feel like a fan for the weekend and I always enjoy my visit. It’s nice to be able to meet the fans and support Rossetts too this year, in return for all their support for us so far this season and I’m looking forward to the Hillclimb with the GSX-R1000.”

Alex Lowes:

“I’m really looking forward to Goodwood. Last year was my first experience of the Festival and I thoroughly enjoyed the event, so it’s great to be invited back with Voltcom Crescent Suzuki. There is always the opportunity to meet some interesting people and of course to ride the Hillclimb. Hopefully the weather will be nice and we can have some fun!”

Perry Reeves – Rossetts Commercials:

“Rossetts are delighted to be attending this year’s Festival of Speed as it is an important event for us to showcase the variety of our business to such a cross-section of the motorsport industry and its enthusiasts. Having both the Voltcom Crescent Suzuki World Superbike riders in attendance to meet the fans as part of our display, alongside the Crescent Motorcycles’ showpiece, provides us the perfect opportunity to underline our partnership with both the race and retail aspects of the Crescent company and I am really looking forward to watching Eugene and Alex climb the hill!”
