Schwantz to take part in Race of Legends aboard his RGV500
1993 world champion joined by Wayne Gardner Freddie Spencer Christian Sarron and other former titleholders
FORMER MotoGP world champion Kevin Schwantz will ride in the upcoming World GP Bike Legends races aboard his iconic Suzuki RGV500 XR84.
The 1993 500cc world champion will take part in the ‘Race of Legends’ at Jerez, Spain, on June 19-21, alongside Wayne Gardner, Freddie Spencer, Christian Sarron, and other former titleholders.
The American said: ‘When I first heard about the event it sounded like it would be a great time,
‘It’s going to be some good fun to be back out there with the old boys on our 500s! Spain has always been the most popular place for Grand Prix racing and I look forward to seeing the huge crowds and all the fans at the event!’
Schwantz’s RGV500 XR84 weighs 131kg and is powered by a 499cc two-stroke V4 engine that makes 165hp.
Also confirmed for the three-day event is Graeme Crosby, who took his Yamaha YZR500 to the runner-up spot in the 1982 World Championship. The New Zealander has also taken part in the Daytona 200, the Imola 200, the Suzuka 8 hours and the Isle of Man TT.
Crosby said: ‘It’s going to be just like the good old days,
‘We’ll be back out on the old two-stroke bikes which are themselves very special, but even better it’s going to be great to see and ride with everyone again. I can’t wait to get down to Jerez!’
