I personally cant see how anybody rates Bridwell he is with the best team at the moment especially with his charm,the only good thing is he wont be there too long.

Good luck to Tommy and great to see he has a ride. Tyco did not fire him, but simply ran low on funds and believe me, the team rate him very, very highly and I think it's mutual.

Real shame for Westy, the boy can ride so let's hope he gets another ride. Best to the pair of you.

Rob Mac Racing is the BSB career killer team. If your name isn't Tommy Hill your ****e, well that's according to Rob Mac.

Anyway Westmoreland had problems adapting to the 600's from 125's, then went on to do quite well, all be it in a team with a handsome budget, he needs time to adapt, I suggest Euro Superstocks, and then get as far away from the money grabbing BSB paddock as possible.

Yeah shame about Westy not getting a bit more of a chance! But has anyone ever seen him overtake another rider in a race? Good smooth rider at lap times but nowhere near enough agression for me! At least Tommy B should sort that side o things out!!!

Completely agree with DBL, but you forgot Andrew Pitt last year.

Good luck to Baz and Westmoreland to find a good ride for the remaining races or, if that isn't possible, for next year.

I know rob is not exactly famed for his happy persona but most years now he seems to switch riders during the season is he really that bad to work for?
isn't it now about time that rob faced up to the fact the glory days have gone and it might be time to call it a day

Was at the Motorpoint launch earlier this year! Very much doubt i'll be there next year! Surely there not gonna throw any more money away at such a crap team! Just where does all the cash go anyway?
