Speed rider Rudolfo Maduro, sets European 1000cc Record!
Rudolfo Maduro of Holland who owns Europe’s
first 7 second GSX-R1000, came into England's Santa Pod Raceway
Extreme Bike Weekend looking to put up some great numbers to close
season on a high.
The EB Speed backed turbocharged GSX-R1000 of Maduro had struggled
to put up good E.T.’s due to some nagging chassis issues
that resulted in excessive wheel spin. For the Extreme Bike event
he made a shock change and the numbers started to come down immediately.
Even with less than optimal gearing Maduro was able to pull of
an outstanding 1.26 60’ time. After a few more changes to
the ECU, he made a clean pass and posted a new personal
best ¼ Mile E.T. of 7.83 seconds. With that run, Maduro
now has Europe’s quickest GSX-R1000! With the newfound confidence
and reliability in his machine, he went on to take the win in the
Top Bike Class.
After the event, Maduro stated: “I would like to personally
my crew chief Eric Boender and Barbara. Ethan Barkley from EB Speed
for his continuous support from day one of this project. Also
a massive thank you to Wouter Dijk from Vreedijk Motor
for his outstanding support with tuning of the ECU. Lastly I would
like to thank my friends Charly Anasagasti and Thurtny Martina
for their support!”
