Everybody else seemed to find a set up. I honestly don"t know what to make of this team , there are some issues that need adressing certainly.
As much as I respect all that Rob has done for BSB over the years this season has been a complete disaster apart from Dan Linfort in Supersport.
I think a lot of riders will run for cover next year if offered a Rob Mac ride.

I can see Rob Mac ending the season with no Superbike riders left, Walker will become even more pi55ed off & do a Rutter ,Gowland will prob do himself a damage by trying too hard.
Notice he hasn't managed to replace Rutter yet....there's a surprise! That seat will be almost as hard to fill as the seat as Stoner's team-mate at Ducati!

Difficult to understand how two teams, running the same bikes,can have such widely different results.
The Airwaves team utterly dominant, Rob Macs, seemingly going nowhere.
I have a lot of respect for Rob M, only hope he can turn it around.

"Difficult to understand how two teams, running the same bikes,can have such widely different results"

that's because one is being supplied with all the parts and info from the factory via the input of the official Yamaha WSBK team, including the base settings used for the first round, the other is a diy job.

Sorry, but as I was just relaying the information as given by Colin Wright about the initial setup data they got, as a BASE SETUP, which by all accounts was not a million miles off, and the fact the GSE boys built the bikes at the Yamaha WSBK workshops over in Italy to the specs supplied by the factory, I would have thought it was bloody simple to understand really.
If you really believe the bikes were "near stock" you are an even bigger muppet, they might not have had the full factory engines, but all the chassis mods and electronics were there, and a well sorted chassis and electronics around brands is worth a bloody sight more than the 15 or so hp they lacked.

Insider I feel you are the muppet if you think GSE ran near stock R1's around Brands in a British Superbike race, as said the engines were near stockish. Theres more to a bike than the engine, and the reason they received their bikes so late was because they were being built in Italy with factory equipment.

You are so wrong, the bikes were built at burton on trent,i know i deliver to them regular, on the tuesday before brands i saw the bare frames on the benches, the bikes they had at the bsb launch had no sumps thas why they never ran, the guy were welding them up on my delivery FACT

Oh, so several times Colin Wright has appeared on national TV and lied to the nation about how the bikes got put together and only you know the real truth.....

Go to any top team during the week before a major race and you will find machines stripped to the chassis, it's called meticulous preperation, I've even managed to walk into my own garage and find exactly that when I was racing!

HI A1 sorry to have to say this but we have made a lot of parts for gse, your man is spot on. and i am a gse fan, even though you are not that keen, the bikes were built at burton on trent.
