WSBK - Sylvain Guintoli will ride at Alstare Suzuki in 2010! -

Author of a very disappointing 2009 season, the Alstare Suzuki team intends to do much better in 2010 … For this, Francis Batta’s team has secured the services of two talented drivers: Leon Haslam but also and above all Sylvain Guintoli !

Between the severe injuries of Max Neukirchner – and his recent signing at Honda Ten Kate -, the decline in form of Yukio Kagayama and the withdrawal of title sponsor Dr. Brux, the 2009 season of the Alstare Suzuki team was not easy. . We would even have easily understood that the charismatic Suz ‘team registered for the SBK World Cup is discouraged…

Nay! Francis Batta’s team made a clean sweep of this "annus horribilis" and set off again with a bang, announcing the arrival in its midst of two excellent drivers next year. But this good news has something to delight French bikers since alongside the promising Leon Haslam, freed from these obligations by the Honda Stiggy Racing team, a certain Sylvain Guintoli will line up. !

This season – that of 2009 therefore -, the Frenchie played "at home" in England. But he too has known his share of setbacks and disillusions…

Indeed, after having taken pole and winning the very first race of the year, then after having lined up three new podiums in a row, poor Sylvain was struck just before the start of the first round of Donington, the third meeting of year !

The day before yesterday, at the end of the British Superbike final at Oulton Park, Sylvain said he was concentrating on the 2010 English season … But throughout the weekend, behind the scenes, a more ambitious project was being set up !

"These last few days have been very busy for us. We started negotiations with Sylvain Guintoli late Thursday evening and worked all weekend to finalize the deal", points out the Alstare Suzuki team, who would like to thank"Suzuki Japan, Suzuki Great Britain and Paul Denning’s Team Crescent".

For our favorite n ° 50, it is therefore the big comeback at the international level! But the "Crazy Frog" could strike hard, from the start: "Sylvain already knows the Suzuki GSX-R and Pirelli tires", warns Francis Batta Himself,"and his professionalism and motivation for this new challenge will allow us to start working together now".
