Guintoli to appear at NEC show.

Sylvain Guintoli will be introduced to fans at the forthcoming Carole Nash NEC Bike Show in November, the Crescent Suzuki team have confirmed.

Guintoli, who currently races in MotoGP with Alice Ducati, will ride in the British Superbike Championship in 2009 after concluding a deal to race with the Suzuki team.

Although his commitments with the Italian team mean he has been silent on the matter so far, the Frenchman will be presented by the team at the annual show for a chance to greet fans and become officially integrated into the Suzuki brand.

For Suzuki GB Marketing Manager George Cheeseman, Guintoli's move from the premier motorcycle racing scene to Suzuki in the UK is an important coup for the brand.

“It is fantastic news that Sylvan has chosen to ride for Suzuki's official British Superbike team – it is credit to the team and the BSB series that it can attract such an international talent.

“Suzuki is absolutely committed to success on the race track and this signing proves how serious we are at getting back the BSB title we won in 2004. Sylvan will have the all new GSX-R1000 at his disposal and together I think they will make a fantastic partnership and one that will lead from the front.”
