Four-time FIM Enduro World Champion David Knight MBE will race this year’s HydroGarden Weston Beach Race on an SR75 2018 Suzuki RM-Z450.
Knighter, a multi-time winner on the Somerset sands, was runner-up in the solo race in 2017 and is confident that this new partnership with Geoff Walker’s SR75 Suzuki team will provide him with everything he needs to challenge for the win this time around.
“I’m very happy to be riding for the SR75 Suzuki team for Weston 2018,” he said. “I tested the all-new 2018 machine and knew it was the right bike to tackle the job on straight away which is very rare for me.
“I love the chassis and the motor as it’s a very easy bike to ride which is the most important thing for me along with reliability because Weston isn’t kind.
“I’ve known Geoff for years and, like myself, he leaves no stone unturned and runs a great team with amazing support from the crew at Suzuki GB and – most of all – he makes it fun which is what I really need out of a team so I can’t wait.”
Knighter has already taken delivery of his practice bike and won the Douglas Beach Race on his first outing last week. Meanwhile, team owner Geoff is preparing a full beach-race specification SR75 RM-Z450.
