The year was extraordinary for Suzuki Ecstar. In its 100-year company history, Joan Mir clinched the title in the penultimate race in the 2020 MotoGP season. The technical alliance between ETS Racing Fuels and Team Suzuki Ecstar proved to be a championship-winning partnership that will continue in 2021.

Bourgtheroulde, France / Frankfurt a.M., Germany, March 15 2021 – In their inaugural season as technical partner and fuel supplier for Team Suzuki Ecstar, ETS Racing Fuels, a fuel technology development partner to the racing industry and a brand of HCS Group, has helped Suzuki clinch the coveted title of World Champion in the 2020 MotoGP season. 2020 marked the 100-year anniversary for Suzuki which has not had a championship win in the series since 2000 and the first official entrance into MotoGP for ETS Racing Fuels — making the victory extraordinarily special for both companies.
“While we achieved this MotoGP championship in only one season, which is truly unprecedented, Suzuki and ETS have a long history together,” says Yann Labia, Global Motorsport Product Manager HCS Group, and adds: “Suzuki gave us our first world title back in 2001 in MXGP, with Mikael Pichon and Team Suzuki Teka, led by Sylvain Geboers. Now we are celebrating our first MotoGP championship together with Joan Mir and the amazing Team Suzuki Ecstar led by Davide Brivio. We couldn’t be more proud.”
The championship victory may have been achieved in one season, but ETS Racing Fuels brings 30 years of competition experience and technical excellence to all of its racing partnerships. Their engagement with Suzuki was no different. After discussing technical and performance requirements with the team, ETS custom engineered a fuel precisely matched to the performance characteristics of the extraordinary GSX-RR 2020. The result ultimately propelled Team Suzuki Ecstar to victory in the most prestigious two-wheel competition in the world.
And their partnership continues. “Together with our shared history of collaboration and winning, it was natural for ETS and Suzuki to continue working together,” says Yann Labia. “So we’re happy to announce that ETS Racing Fuels and Team Suzuki Ecstar will be partners again for the 2021 MotoGP season. We can’t wait!”
