Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki Concludes Positive Test at CA Speedway

Record-setting, six-time AMA Superbike Champion Mat Mladin’s Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki team debuted its 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000 Superstock machine at their successful two-day test at California Speedway in Fontana, Calif., on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006.

Australian rider Marty Craggill rode for Mladin’s fledgling team in 2005 and will again ride for Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki. Last year, he raced a Suzuki GSX-R1000 in AMA Superbike and won first-privateer bragging rights by finishing in seventh place. For 2006, the Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki team will contest AMA Superstock on a more production-based GSX-R1000.

"It was a great couple of days and it was nice to be back on a bike after five months,” said Craggill. “I felt very good and the 2006 GSX-R1000 performed flawlessly for the two days. It is amazing that we started building the race bike just three weeks ago and when we turned up to test, the bike never missed a beat. It goes to show how great a package the 2006 Suzuki GSX-R1000 is and I look forward to the first race with the Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki team."


The Hotbodies Racing Mat Mladin Motorsports Suzuki team’s first race will be the season-opening round of AMA Superbike at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., March 8 - 11, 2006.
