SUZUKI'S 50th TT CELEBRATIONS: Suzuki organised and clearly detailed their intentions to celebrate the 50th year of Suzuki competing at the Isle of Man, specifically a Suzuki Memorabilia display at the Manx Museum, an appearance by Suzuki MotoGP Star 'Loris Capirossi' and his 300th GP Suzuki GSV-R800 and a lap of the TT course after the Senior TT by Suzuki's Cam Donald on the GSV-R800, the first MotoGP bike to lap the TT course.

50 Years of Suzuki at the TT: The Manx Museum held an exhibition of Suzuki motorcycles, memorabilia and race leathers from their fifty years of competing at the TT. The display albeit small contained some pertinent reminders of Suzuki's many successes on the Isle of Man.
