'At this stage BSB is a great place for PJ to be and although we have no immediate plans to move onto the world stage just yet, I believe that PJ will have an opportunity to do that within the next few years' - Philip Neill

But Jonop you're missing a trick, just think of all the mileage you could get out of it next year if he did win in BSB....clearly if an American no-hoper like PJ can be successful then the whole series and all the riders MUST be sh*t.....

Why the f*ck would anybody want to 'race' a Harley anyway, not exactly the career path to fame & fortune is it? 2 wheels on a concrete mixer does not make a race bike, I can understand it being hard to work up the enthusiasm to ride one on the track.

If you'd care to research PJs career I think you'll find he never competed in a full season of the Harley championship in the States, so your point there isn't relevant. And saying he's bringing a pay check to Tyco Suzuki is a joke because PJ had signed to ride for PTR Honda in World Supersport for 2011, but he lost the ride due to money, so once again another point that isn't relevant.

PJ seems like a good kid and he has talent for sure, it will be interesting to gauge his improvement against Brookes next year who is no mug.
The Tyco tie-in gives him a proven package and there must be hope he can shine.

IF HE GOES WELL, there's every chance he will be snapped up by GP.
The USA is an important market. After the disappointment of Speez and with Nick & Col doing squat for so long, there will be opportunities.
Passport racing is a fact.

Good to see a Yank with ambition taking a home sickness pill and coming to Europe.

Unlike some sports in the US, no way can bike racing there be considered a place to take your career forward.

By what he's shown so far, I'm sure he's got something. I think all genuine BSB enthusiasts will welcome him here. Most Brits, contrary to what is sometimes reported, are totally welcoming to overseas riders competing in the National Championship.

Where did he get noticed? Where is he riding next season, what is it with you Americans? If there was nothing in BSB why has he bothered coming her?

Surely he would stay with all the all super, mutant ninja fasts boys hiding away in the USA, capable of waisting everyone but not that interested in doing so due to be so incredable that they see no point.

I no exactly how good you have to be to come to a strange track , strange championship, strange bike and win, in two seperate classes! Am I taking stupid pills do people honestly think thats no biggy?

Well anyway the boys who run the team do, maybe when the rest come over we'll realise he's nothing special, where did Zemke finish again??

@Cod99,
What's with you hypocritical Brits? In one thread you're ranting that foreign riders should have to bring money to race in BSB and in the next you're praising one that has none for being there?

If the AMA isn't worth anyones time why did Ellison and Davis come race here? (Got their asses kicked too)

@phil arm
"until those other guys mentioned come over and do similar or better then there is no way to tell if they have more talent."

As far as the other Americans I've listed, they've all been on the track with Jacobsen and beaten him more often than been beaten by him. Apples to Apples.

Theres no point in arguing with you.

The reason, which obviously you missed, why I was mentioning on another thread about taking rides is simple. PJ is an genuing up and coming talent, not some already established winner in another championship thats just bringing money. Especially a championship who's supporters are touting as some super fly championship, just go buy a wsbk ride if it's such a high level. Not slag the gift horse off.

Point being the top teams should have one genuine up and coming rider and one established rider, fck it re read it yrself its about the organisation structure. Factory Honda UK have it right this year.

Why Ellison and others went there, LOL simple MONEY! no other reason, tool.
Why no results or as you put it "got their ****s kicked", because teams seriously over estimated the equiment they had and underestimated the difference lots of money can make to results.

Also quite simple why PJ has been beaten in that championship, probably the same reason ol

@drifterjake

I will have to take your word on that as I don't get to see much AMA but they still haven't done what he has and made the trip over to a european championship new tracks different riding styles different weather conditions alot of variables and won. If as I said before they come win on a new bike at a new track against well established competiton then fair enough but until that happens P.J is an oustanding talent with the potential to go right to the top of the sport.
