Team Classic Suzuki to raise funds for Mathison family with Superbike sale

In News, Roads

ISLE of Man TT stalwart Team Classic Suzuki is gearing up to raise money for the family of Daley Mathison with the sale of one of his former superbikes.

The rising roads star, who lost his life in an incident on the island during the opening 2019 Superbike race, left behind wife Natalie and now-four-year-old daughter Daisy.

But the squad for which he rode on a number of occasions is now hoping to benefit his family as they commit proceeds from the sale of one of their Superbikes to the Mathisons.

“Team Classic Suzuki and Steve Wheatman were proud sponsors of Daley Mathison,” a team statement said.

The former TAS Racing Superbike ridden by Daley, which is being sold to raise funds for his family…

“For the 2013/14 season we supplied him with the TAS Racing Tyco Suzuki GSX-R1000 superbike that William Dunlop rode in 2012. Daley owed much of his early success to riding this machine.

“Daley tragically lost his life at the Isle of Man in 2019, leaving behind his wife Natalie and daughter Daisy, now four-years-old. The bike has been in the Team Classic Suzuki collection since then, and we have decided to put the bike up for sale with all the money raised from the sale going to Natalie and Daisy.”
