Lydia Lassila suzuki ambassador


Suzuki ambassador and aerial skiing champion Lydia Lassila has issued a challenge to would be hot hatch fans.

The world Cup and Olympic champion has clocked a fast time in practise for the Swift Sport Hot Lap Challenge and the race is on to find five challengers.

Lassila will be joined by a bevy of Suzuki stars, including world snowboard champion Alex Chumpy Pullin and star players from the table topping Melbourne Storm

“I’ve clocked a time I think is good enough to win,” a confident Lassila said yesterday. “And on May 7 I’m ready to go even faster.”

Hot hatch fans who think they can better the Suzuki Olympic champion line-up are invited to follow the link at and accept the challenge.

The five lucky winners will receive expert training from the John Bowe Driving School and then have the chance to explore the limits of a new Swift Sport in the safe confines of a race track.

Lassila, however, is confident she can match all comers.

“I am a huge motor sport fan, so The Swift Sport Hot Lap Challenge is a great way for me to train my competitive nerve as I start preparing to defend my title at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.”
