Vic Camp Suzuki Gallery
The Camp Suzuki's were built to provide economical
new race bikes for club racers and they gave many
racers an affordable route into circuit racing.
They were built from TS250 trail bikes and by adding
a disc front brake and shortening the front forks,
a surprisingly nimble bike was created. The engine
was effectively half a T500 and so suitable porting
and exhaust technology was readily available.
Vic Camp had been the importer for Ducati motorcycles
to the UK unti the early '70s when Ducati started
their own set up. He had always supported circuit
racing with modified road bikes and had run a race
school with Tom Kirby. Feeling somewhat aggrieved
at the loss of the Ducati dealership, Camp turned
to Suzuki for his Walthamstow bike shop and 250 two
strokes bikes were a natural progression.
