What a sad state of affairs when a championship winning outfit are unable to find funds to compete the following year!!At a time when i read somewhere that a Premiership player was willing to take a £10,000 a week paycut.Paycut....Get motorcycle racing on terrestrial tv as well as on Eurosport then they may be more sponsorship available.

What a shame...Gary and his team, Sam especially, ALL did such a Fantastic job in their debut season.

Hope that they will be in a position to make a return sooner rather than later, as they certainly added something to the BSB Paddock.

Keep The Faith!!

Just goes to prove that the BSB paddock is still an expensive series to race in. GNS Racing needs to find another paying rider, or alernatively go to the Spanish Championship for a win, they'll probably get more exposure there than in the UK.

As well as GNS, Raceways will not be here for the 2011 season. £5 a Litre for control race fuel, £200 a set of control tyres. Sure Mr Higgs could help a few of these teams out rather then selling the rights to these companies for massive amounts of money, only to pass the cost on to the teams. GNS was the best team in the paddock last year but no help to run this year. Mr Higgs please put some money back in to the sport before we loose any more great teams....GUTTED
