So, the final MotoGP test of 2011 approaches, and the Rizla Suzuki are taking a special guest with them to Qatar for this session.
John Hopkins will make his return to the MotoGP paddock as a Rizla Suzuki guest.
Hopkins recently joined the Samsung Crescent Suzuki team in British Superbikes in an aim to re-build his career following surgery to his wrist to enable him to keep riding. Hopkins will assist Rizla Suzuki with some PR filming planned for the test weekend and will be watching the progress of the 2011 Suzuki GSV-R around the 5,380m Losail circuit with interest as there have been rumours that he may get a wildcard MotoGP opportunity during the 2011 season.
“After the two good tests at Sepang we have a better idea about the bike and a good setting to start with at Qatar. This final test will be very important for us, as it will be the last time we can make some more improvements to the GSV-R before the first race. I am really looking forward to racing again and that can’t come soon enough for me. The team has worked very well in the pre-season and we need to carry this on and into the rest of the year.”
