2015 Road Race Contingency Rules

The 2015 Suzuki Contingency Program runs from January 16, 2015 through December 31, 2015.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Only the following models sold by authorized U.S. dealers are eligible for the 2015 Suzuki Road Race Contingency Program: 2014 and 2015 GSX-R600, GSX-R750, GSX-R1000, GSX-R1000 ABS, and SFV650
  • Qualifying models must display standard logos as described.
  • There will be no updating of Suzuki equipment. A given model year must remain stock per that model year’s Suzuki service manual. For example, you may not install a 2012 GSX-R750 model year engine into a 2014 or 2015 GSX-R750 model year frame.
  • Contingency will be paid to the Warranty Registered owner. If the motorcycle raced is not owned by the racer, the warranty registered owner must complete a sponsor verification form for contingency to be paid to racer.
  • Only one rider may earn contingency on any single motorcycle during a contingency year.
  • Participants must hold an expert license and have a valid U.S. Social Security Number or taxpayer ID number.
  • Participants must have a valid U.S. address.

Earning/Payment Information:

  • Riders may “ride up” one class on GSX-R model motorcycles if their sanctioning body allows. For example, a GSX-R600 may compete and earn money in the 750cc class but not the 1000cc class.
  • Contingency payments will not be made to classes that have fewer than the required minimum number of riders.
  • Suzuki will pay contingency to 50% of the starting grid, up to a maximum of 5 riders in all classes. In no case will Suzuki pay road racing contingency where the starting grid is less than 5 riders.
  • Contingency payments will be made on a reloadable Suzuki Contingency Card only redeemable at authorized U.S. Suzuki dealerships.
  • Participants will not receive their Suzuki Contingency Card until they have placed in a paying position at a specified event on the Suzuki Contingency Payout Schedule.
  • Riders falsifying claims will be automatically disqualified from the program.

The registration must be submitted to Suzuki Motor of America, Inc. (SMAI) within 30 days after the first event in order to qualify for payment. Registrations submitted after the 30 day period will not be eligible for payment. It is the racer’s responsibility to resolve race result disputes with the race organization. SMAI will only make payments based on results provided by the race organization. No payments will be made for races included in the 2015 Suzuki contingency program after January 1, 2016. Any errors or missed payments must be reported to Suzuki in writing prior to January 1, 2016 or those payments will be forfeited.
