Yoshimura Suzuki’s Toni Elias extended his MotoAmerica Superbike championship lead with a victory on Sunday aboard the brand-new Suzuki GSX R1000.
He took the win on his Suzuki GSX R1000 at the ‘Suzuki ECSTAR Championship’ event, racing in front of a sun-drenched crowd at Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia, as teammate Roger Hayden finished a close runner-up, just 0.308 seconds behind, putting him into a tie for second the championship standings.
Now with three wins in four races, Elias enjoys a commanding 26-point lead in the Motul MotoAmerica Superbike Championship.
He said, “I’m happy with the results. The team did a great job. We changed the setup and my pace was much better. I wanted to open the gap, but Roger caught me every time. It was impossible.
“The lap before the last lap, I relaxed and gave my muscles a chance to recover and then on the final lap I pushed on the limit and tried to be perfect and we got the victory and are looking strong in the championship.”
