SHOCK HORROR - Rob mac gets rid of pitt because he will gain some money out of it

nothing against Baz as he is a good young talent but im not suprised Pitt is P8ssed off with the way he's been treated

Has Rob mac ever paid a rider, or does he just get young talents to pay for their rides!!!!!!!!!!!

Johnboy.Rob Mac has done more for british bike racing than anybody involved with BSB today.So he makes a few quid out of racing,so what i bet you dont work for nothing.People are not forced to ride for Rob Mac they choose to and it is usually the case that Rob picks riders up of the floor and gives them a chance when they have no other options.The paddock would be a lot better place with more team managers like Rob Mac. FACT
Good luck to all the team,Dan Linfoot and Loris Baz at silverstone. Loris Baz has already been around silverstone in Euro SSTK so he could spring a suprise.

I dont know the ins and outs of whats gone on but i feel for Pitt,since that Brands accident with Craig Jones he has not been the same and he got shafted in World Superbike too when he was doing ok.Even Neukirchners not the same since his massive accident and he was up there challenging for race wins and podiums.
Not so rosey as we might think racing huh?One minute your idolised the next your out on your ass looking for a ride.

G i hope this kid gets a chance for a full time season, should be a better championship next year with the new green kaw racein at the front, i sure hope Baz can keep a bike or 2 between him and despert Dan as he will bust his ass to beat his team mate.

@BSB Fan

Are you OK?! I mean, mentally 'with it'?!

I only ask, because either:
a) you are sleeping with Rob Mac
b) you want to be Rob Mac, or
c) you are Rob Mac

I can't think of any other explanation for your blind view that he is a good chap (he is known for shafting riders, and doesn't even treat the ones he has with the respect they deserve). He has an awful reputation, and is known for not paying what he owes.

As for the assertion that he has done more for BSB than anyone else...what exactly is it you think he has done?!

Like him or loath him Rob Mac' has been racing/managing for most of his life. There isn't a more experienced guy in BSB today or indeed probably in Europe.

Rob is passionate about racing, does everyone not remember his massive stand up row with Colin Wright after one of the Airwaves guys took out Karl Harris. They were very close to fighting.

Rob owns and runs the team as a professional and expects the same of his riders. No-one out side the team knows the reason for Andrew Pitt being eased out but it is certainly NOT to line Rob Mac's pocket.

Maybe Yamaha Europe are involved to give their employee more experience ?

Good luck to Loris Baz he is one of the few that can make the 2010 R1 work well and as a 'young gun' he deserves our support

Terry.
The answer to the question 'what has Rob Mac done for british racing'can be seen in some of todays top riders that came from the R6 cup and Jon Kirkham and Ben Wilson from the R1 Cup.Tommy Hill had his first success on a SBK riding for Rob Mac.Whitham,Mackenzie rode for Yamaha under Rob Mac.Billy Mcconnell,Tommy Bridewell,Conor Cummins all rode in the R6 cup.
I am not claiming Rob Mac is an angel but a lot of people who are doing well in racing today may not of been where they are if they had never rode for Rob Mac in a championship or a one make series that he organised.
