Broadcaster: Suzi Perry

Prior to landing the lead role in the BBCF1 team, Suzi was perhaps best known for her work in presenting two wheel racing, having been the presenter for BBC's coverage of MotoGP for thirteen years. This was combined with seventeen series as co-presenter of hi-tech The Gadget Show on Channel Five.

Suzi's first break in TV came about through her passion for bikes. Having obtained her bkie licence, regular trips to watch racing at Mallory Park and Donington led to a determination and a plan to forge a career in the industry.

"I made a tape; it would be around 1996/97 interviewing some of the riders at Donington including Niall McKenzie, Jamie Whittam and Phil McCallum. I got a lot of help and support from the guys and I still appreciate that to this day".

"Brands Hatch, 1997 was a massive moment in my life. It was the first race I presented on TV. I was working for Sky Sports and it was a six hour-long live broadcast! It's fair to say it was a real sink or swim moment." 

Away from the race track, Suzi was brought up surrounded by the black and gold of her local football club Wolverhampton Wanderers.
