SUZUKI TO DEFEND ARENACROSS TITLE IN 2017

161025_46

Thomas Ramette, the 2015 and 2016 Arenacross Pro Champion, has confirmed he and SR75 World Team Suzuki will return to AX in 2017 with a single-minded determination to once again lift the coveted AX Pro crown.

Whilst undoubtedly the most successful Pro racer and team in the four-year history of the ultra-competitive UK-based race series, Ramette and SR75 will be up against some stiff opposition next year.

Both preceding Arenacross champions Adam Chatfield and Fabien Izoird are already signed up and chomping at the bit to get out on track to secure points, and a share of the significant prize fund. However, Ramette may have a slight advantage in that he is the only former series winner to return with the same manufacturer, team-mate and team set-up.

Ramette’s smooth style and determined attitude served him well in the closely-contested, and often controversial, 2016 series, particularly as it reached the climax in London. He set out his stall at the opening round in Manchester back in January with an Arenacross racing masterclass to secure the first win of the year, and then went on to take a further four Main Event outright wins.

Of the 11-round championship, the Suzuki pairing of Ramette and team-mate Cyrille Coulon enjoyed 10 podium finishes, confirming SR75 Suzuki as undisputed back-to-back Team Champions in the process.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Ramette kept himself pretty busy once the AX dust settled. Immediately after the final leg at Wembley, he jetted out to America to tackle the East Coast rounds of the gruelling AMA Supercross, prior to returning to Europe to contest, and win, a number of high-profile indoor and outdoor Supercross events.

In the latest chapter of the Ramette success story, the likeable 25-year-old Frenchman was crowned King of Stockholm SX at the beginning of October, ahead of fast-charging Arenacross regulars Angelo Pellegrini, Jack Brunell, Izoird, Flo Richier and Matt Bayliss and, more recently, he added the King of Poland SX award to his bulging trophy cabinet.
