Words from the Team Director, Yohei Kato:

"I am very delighted to say that Yoshimura SERT Motul will participate in the FIM Endurance World Championship in 2023. The statement from Suzuki Motor Corporation (SMC) ending its factory participation in MotoGP and EWC at the end of 2022 was of course very difficult to digest. However, we accepted the situation and set our mind on putting in place new plans for the EWC 2023 season."

What's next for the Yoshimura Suzuki Endurance Racing Team?

Damien Saulnier, Team Manager, said: "It is with great pleasure that, together with Yohei, we can confirm that the Yoshimura SERT Motul partnership is renewed for 2023. We will be running our Suzuki GSX-R1000R in red and blue livery to symbolise our association with both Yoshimura and Suzuki for the third year. We’ll also run with the traditional number 12 plate when we return to the track next April. Despite the withdrawal of Suzuki from the official competition, we are still getting significant support from them as we continue to represent the brand in this important world championship. We will do our best to reward such confidence and return the Japanese manufacturer to the top step of the EWC podium in 2023."

The first race of the EWC season will be the 24 Heures Motos at Le Mans from 13-16 April.
