BSB » TAS Suzuki back in BSS with Mackenzie


"It's refreshing to bring in an enthusiastic and talented young rider like Taylor, which will help us start the development process going all over again, a bit like we did with Tom Sykes" - Philip Neill.

I can't beleive they've signed Taylor Mac. He's been nowhere all year. I don't know how he kept the ride at Mar-train. Whilst Kennedy was winning TM was finishing 16th! maybe its something to do with his name.

A bit sh1tty on Seely-if you don't want the lad,at least
tell him straight. Still,their loss is Gear links gain.
Thats going to be one colourful team to say the least and i can't see Mackenzie mixing it up with them.

Ive allways been a fan of the Mackenzie clan
havin first met his dad when he came down to cadwell on his lc yamaha, and followed his and his sons careers with great interest.
But this is not right, a best finish of sixth place rewarded with what amounts to a semi "works " ride.
Big kick in the cobblers for seeley and all the boys who finished higher than sixth place last season looking for good rides
"its not how well you ride blah blah blah but who your dad knows"

He showed moments of some form in 125's. But hasn't set the paddock alight in 2011.

Lets see what he does with a year under his belt.

Yes his dad will have opened some doors. Connections with Suzuki, and some of the sponsors of TAS will have undoubtable helped.

Maybe TAS were not going to run BSS, but if Suzuki come along and offer you some free bikes (due to NM connection) and sponsor is will to foot some of the bill, them have the knowledge and experience to do it.

lets see what he can do, after all before 2011 he sent his career on 2 strokes, plently of world class racers took a whole season to get used to a Moto2 bike after being very competitive on a 125GP.

To the first couple of posters, do you actually think getting a ride/keeping a ride in the UK has ANYTHING to do with ability?

The whole paddock is about money, right from the top down, all the way down to the little people filling the classes to pay for the same old people.

The who you know, who's yr dad, how bigs yr wallet treadmill continues...
