During their ten years in the paddock they have had a wealth of success but now due to commercial reasons they have decided to go their separate ways.

The following statement was issued by Francis Batta, Alstare Group President......

"After ten years of outstanding collaboration benefiting all parties involved, Grupo Modelo and Corona Extra have decided to withdraw from the motorsport world for commercial reasons.

As a result, the contracts between Corona Extra and the World Superbike Championship and Team Alstare Suzuki will not be renewed for 2008.

Team Alstare Suzuki and their partners would like to thank Grupo Modelo and Corona Extra for their support, which helped Team Alstare to win many victories in the World Superbike, Supersport and European Championships. They are also grateful for their assistance in promoting the development of the World Superbike Championships and increasing its popularity."
