Press Release –
Jeremie Warnia, Suzuki Pro ATV racer from Paris, France, made a guest appearance this weekend at the fifth round of the ITP QuadCross Series held at Glen Helen Raceway, San Bernardino, Calif.
Warnia had a 2-1 victory, which was enough to clinch the overall from Doug Eichner.
More interesting was that Warnia’s Suzuki QuadRacer R450 was a nearly stock unit with only minor aftermarket mods, including Yoshimura exhaust, Fox shocks and JB A-Arms.
In a field of highly modified bikes, Warnia showed the true power of the stock machine to awed onlookers surrounding the challenging course.
In France, 21-year old Warnia is the national SuperQuad Champion of 2004, 2006 and 2007 as well as Spanish MX Cross Champion of 2006. In that year, he also attained second place in the French National Championship.
Warnia was excited to have the opportunity to race with the U.S. Pros and was very pleased with this victory. “I love racing in America,” said the French champ. “The tracks are really fun and the people I have met have been very nice to me. I always wanted to ride at Glen Helen as it is a well-known track in France. I look forward to trying to qualify for the Red Bud National event this weekend.”
