Very sad to hear this - I hope Tommy gets some decent offers because based on last years stunning performance he deserved a decent ride. Also feel sorry for Patric Muff who has been steadily improving in BSB.

A great shame to lose Supersonic, WFR and MSS.

Looks like a downward spiral for bsb.
I hope tommy bridewell can get a decent ride for the season as he was showing his potential last year and was definitely looking like a good bet for a future contender .

Am gutted for Tommy.
Last year Tommy's infectious enthusiasm coupled with great results was fantastic.
Desparately hope he can get a competitive ride asap.
Fingers crossed cos BSB needs him.
I will also say Tommy exceeded what Supersonic thought they would achieve and it would be nice if BMW rewarded Tommy's efforts!

Gutted. They were a credit to the championship last year. Bridewell rode a strong and mature season, and deserves another crack at it with a decent team behind him again.

What a waste off top talent, Tommy would have been a real threat on the tested BMW just a shame we have no place for british riders in a british champship

STU, he may be British but it was an Italian based team that gave him the ride mate.

BSB seems to be struggling, someone has to be making a fair bit of money out of all huge gates the championship attracts/MCE cash/TV rights and it is obviously not filtering down with all these teams falling by the wayside.

I remember Higgs stating that they go out of their way to help teams attract sponsors, well what do you do when there aren't any willing to front up with the cash?

Teams and riders should be getting paid for good results. That won't be enough though but least the chance of cash for podiums would's called Prize Money and if bike riders don't deserve that for putting their lives on the line i don't know who does
