Suzuki Motorcycles Australia has announced a new rider contingency program for 2018, offering up to $900,000 across a selection of disciplines in the sport domestically.

Suzuki is providing racers a chance to be rewarded for their commitment and results by offering selected amounts that are available for national and state motocross and supercross, national and state superbike and supersport, Australian Off-Road Championship, Finke and Hattah desert races.

Registration to the Suzuki Support Rider (SSR) Contingency program is free, where riders can register multiple machines in different capacity classes with cash rewards available in both on and off-road racing categories.

Riders who compete on a current generation Suzuki motorcycle are eligible to register as a SSR, however only one rider can register per VIN.

Suzuki will send each rider an acceptance letter, which includes a SSR registration number. One number will be issued per rider, even if the rider competes on more than one machine or in multiple capacity classes.

This registration number will be used in all claims for contingency or other correspondence with Suzuki. Only the nominated Motorcycling Australia (MA) sanctioned events will be eligible for contingency. For more information, visit
