Calling Rutter unlucky is an insult. He failed on the NW200 Yamaha and failed on the Suzuki. He fluked a big result in race 1 at Mallory, but someone of his calible should be straight onto the works bikes, or calling it a day. It's very unfortunate for SMT, who seem like a good bunch of guys working hard, but not so much for Rutter.

SMT wasted their money on O'Halloran that's the problem!.If it wasn't for Adam Jenkinson they wouldn't be here now. They think they are HM Plant! they needed a reality check.

Sorry Martin I would like to see you line up at the TT or the NW200 and see how fast you can ride round it, 200mph on public roads. Rutter is a excellent rider and a nice bloke but correct not much luck.

He could be better off going to Superstock and race in that Championship or wait and see what happens with SMT Honda.

But I don't think Rutter is finished with yet.

Rutter is a nice bloke and while i would never disrespect what these lads can do,i think he should call it a day.Stalker is from the same era but still has fire in his belly whereas Michael just seems like he doesn't need the aggro.As regards to SMT,BSB needs all the entries it can get,and this is a tidy little outfit that's never disgraced itself.I hope it's a temporary glitch and can find the funding to return soon.

I think it is you who needs the reality check Lucky Girl!! You are obviously ignorant to the extent of SMT's financial woes. It has nothing to do with O'Halloran, he took the opportunity that was offered to him by SMT, thats all. One could ponder as to why they attempted to run two bikes under such trying cicumstances. Perhaps they would have been wiser to stick to one bike for the year knowing that sponsorship was going to be hard to get. It appears that Jason O'Halloran was wise to accept the stint in wss afterall, and I for one wish him every success. If you want to lay blame try the GFC!!!!!
