Swiss team will race with the Swiss manufacturer from 20181887245a1f611d1f009.jpg

Forward Racing have announced that they will be racing with Suter  machinery from 2018 on, with the intermediate class outfit’s riders  Eric Granado and Stefano Manzi having tested out the new bikes at Jerez  with positive results and feedback.

         The collaboration extends to a test program that is especially  but not exclusively designed to prepare for the 2019 season, when the  intermediate class engine supplier will change to Triumph. At the same  time, it marks a return to their roots for Forward, with Suter having  been the first supplier for the team during their initial year of  Moto2™.  Moreover, Suter Industries is one of only two engineering  companies in the Moto2™ World Championship capable of realising a  complete motorcycle in-house – with Suter’s setup cited as a key reason  for the switch, which creates an all-Swiss combination that the team  will hope to take to winning ways in future.

         “I'm very happy to work again with Suter Industries, which were  already a vital part at the beginning of our Moto2 experience,” says  Team Principal Giovanni Cuzari. “This is a return to the origins;  looking back to the past I see not only the same bike supplier but also  Milena Koerner, who started the Moto2 experience with us. I still have  very good memories of these years, the start of everything, a period of  hard work that has rewarded us with fantastic results. During my latest  visit to the headquarters, 7 years after my last trip to Turbenthal, I  saw great progress and a lot of investments made by this company and I  think that Suter Industries is the only engineering in the Championship  that could bring important updates race by race.”

         Race by race starts in March, but first the team will be back on  track in preseason testing in the new year as they settle in to the  switch.
