Here again is a classic explanation to lots of people who think these boys are being handsomely paid to ride these bikes !! They aren't, and have to bring a large bundle of cash with them to help fund their own rides.

Anther reason BSB is going to be all EVO's next year.. to keep cost down! Everyone in the AMA didnt like what DMG proposed in the AMA series, which was go from WSBK/BSB rules to Superstock rules, but in the end it has made racing more affordable and a bit more exciting, in which Im very happy for. With this current economy we are all suffering, as a spectator and the sport we love to watch.. I hope that WSBK follows in the same foot steps in order to keep racing competitive and exciting, I just would hate to see another team such as the Yamaha SBK team leave the series, along with with its riders that keep it exciting.

Such a shame for Loris....... BUT...........

It is not so long ago when Rob Mac signed him loads were posting on here that he would be dropped faster than a hot stone when his sponsorship money ran out. Rob Mac has a history now of only valuing & keeping riders while they bring money

So, the marshals don't get paid, the riders don't get paid, retails and food pitches are paid for at pretty handsome costs, most of the circuits are owned by the championship's owners...

Yes, the air ambulance and some other expenses must be covered, but where the frig does ALL the money go?

It's no wonder some of these lads stick predominantly to the roads where there's some actual prize money.

Rob macs known for being tight obviously he not interested in good results just the cash the riders bring in wouldnt be surprised if hes still got the purple cadbury boost bikes in storage incase he needs basically doesnt matter how good you are on a bike all depends on your bank balance.

Rob Mac ain't running a charity, he's running a business. I know some can't actually handle that, but this is how it is. Baz signed to ride for him for a pre agreed amount. If he can't meet that then the ride has to stop.

And can any of you experts tell us how much it costs to organise a race meeting, because I'll guess that it is an awful lot, before you even mention the TV prodcution.
