So why is it called a Motorpoint Yamaha Team? Or do they just cough up the money for pointless paddock hospitality tents and no money to run the bikes? Seems to me they are in danger of making themselves look a bit silly if they can't at least step in to bridge a gap for a round or two.

at last some young racer comes along,and takes the stupid look of this team by getting some decent results,and shows a bit of form,(actually makin the team look good for a change),and as usual they cant afford to run him,many on here said it would come down to this, and they were right, well someone else will snap this talent up,and the team can return to lookin stupid again.

What you guys on about..riders have to pay into a major team to access the facilities and equipment. If a personal sponsor drops out, the team is NOT obliged to find extra funds to pay for the rider to continue. Its a pretty standard deal.
For any dewy eyed turn up in a transit and do my own spannering types..this is how it is..Motorsport costs big time and riders need to pay for it! This is how it is!

Yes - only the very best, well established stars of BSB get paid to race.

Unfortunately Baz has a personal sponsor who has not paid the team any money so far this year. I hope he finds a replacement sponsor because this kid is seriously talented and should be on the grid.

Personally I would like to see him in WSS asap rather than in BSB - perhaps he could replace Davies or Scassa if either of them move on next year?

@motorsport sponsor

Yes, riders with lesser talent and/or riders within lesser teams. Talented riders GET PAID by top teams - they don't bring money. But obviously Motorpoint isn't a top team.

If Motorpoint or Loris can't find the funding he'll land somewhere later in the year or next year because he actually has talent.
