Pit lane. Not as glamorous as on the Formel 1 circuits but much more relaxed and fun!

Drag Racing with the GT50

Owner: Guido Samson, Suriname

Comments: ”Here is Suriname we modify the bikes for 400 meter drag racing. We reach times of 15 seconds flat on the track. The Suzuki GT50 is the most popular bike for the race and the most popular team is Racing Team Benie's.

Benie's have two bikes, the nr 6 and 7 (see the pictures). The #6 is sponsored by Big John's Batties. Following modifications have been made to the bike:

51mm bore
28 mm flatslide carb
Polini reeds
home build exhaust pipe
pvl ignition
16 inch alloy wheels
sprocket set 13/36

The cylinder is a tuned standard cylinder but with a bore of 51mm. The cylinder head is freased by ourselves. I will mail you the pics of the bikes so you can put them on your site.

We also use RM125, KX, YZ ignitions, whatever we can build to fit on the bike.”
