GSX-R750 CupFor many reasons, the Suzuki GSX-R750 Cup is a very special race. Not only does this iconic race event offer a uniquely special atmosphere, but our Product Manager has also personally entered the race!

And if our Product Manager Malte Bigge comes back with a mile-wide grin on his face, then we know he had a great weekend of racing. Just like the weekend of April 13/14 in Oschersleben at the Suzuki GSX-R750 Cup, where Malte finished in 2nd and 3rd place respectively in the two events.

What makes this cup so special is that the race is open not only to seasoned racers like Malte, but also to anybody else who rides a Suzuki GSX-R750 (model year 2004 or later) with no more than 140 hp and has at least a B-license or an inter-license. So, with everyone racing the same bike, everybody has the same chance of winning!

This egalitarian approach also extends to the choice of tyres, and here again, Conti plays an integral part in the race. All of the participants will be racing exclusively on soft or medium versions of our ContiRaceAttack Comp. tyres.

Not only this, but the tyres will also be mounted by our colleague Marco Zahn from Road Testing, who has joined the fray as a tyre expert. We are sponsoring the family-focused, traditional cup with around 60 sets of tires. I wonder whether our Product Manager will come out on top at the end of the seven-race season (with each race featuring two separate scoring events)? We are, of course, keeping our fingers crossed for him. But he certainly wont fail because of the choice of tyres.
