Come on Higgs & Palmer, get your act together. BSB is losing too many teams and looks like its going too be a poorer series than last year. As other posters have already stated, with gate receipts etc and the extra cash from forcing entrants to use only BSB tracks for testing, there must be more that can be done to allow young BRITISH talent to prosper. Bridewell clearly showed that he is a force to be reckoned with. If we keep losing riders like Tommy and teams like WFR, Supersonic and Padgetts then I shall NOT be going to any BSB this year. Time to stop profitering and put some money back into the sport.

Funny how 19 riders in WSB is wonderful but 22+ in BSB in thin. Watching Shakey Kiyo Lowes Ellison Brookes and the new kids Farmer Waters Jacobsen Buchan and co is worth my hard earned 25 quid any day over 60 at Silverstone for World stuff.

@ gilbert

It's thin because it was 32 last year. One year ago it looked like BSB is in a very good shape.

The problem is not with the riders, Shakey, Kiyo, Ellison, etc. are interesting, although Tommy Hill should be there. The problem is that the grid dropped largely in a so little time and teams which could got into the top 6 are pulling out.

I saw the supersonic racing truck heading north on the M3 yesterday... sad to see that it probably aint there truck anymore!

Msv / bsb needs to find a good way of supporting these well managed teams and talented riders to go racing. Talent like gino rea and bridewell need to be on good machines.

its a very sad day when talent such as tommy bridewell cannot go racing because of lack of funds, we all know he did wonders last year with what was a new team and a pretty much stock bike,don,t know what else the poor lad could do to impress anyone,its a shame and a great loss to the sport if nobody gives him a chance to further his career,if you are an average rider and a big wallet suddenly you are wanted and everone is suddenly interested in you,but surely for the teams sponsors they would like to see someone battling in the top 6 than being an also ran, not many sports that i can think of any other sport where you have to pay to participate , lay your life on the line for the pleasure of the spectators ,and receive no reward for your exceptional skill, strange!!!maybe someone drops out like last year ,fingers crossed

How many people like myself have no personal link with Tommy but take a particular interest in his career because we were introduced to him at an early age, (along with late lamented brother Ollie), thanks to tv coverage of the R6 series? Same goes for other ex-Yamaha Cup riders like Crutchlow. There's a good article on motomatters at the moment about the following Moto3 riders have, on Facebook etc, amongst the teenage girl demographic. The riders have a similar following to boy bands being young, fit and attractive, with different types for different tastes, plus all the thrills and spills of motorcycle racing which the rest of us enjoy. When sponsorship money is so tight that talents like Bridewell have no bike to race, the organisers should be pushing for something like the R6 Cup again on TV, or better still, a British "Red Bull Rookies" Moto3 series, (allowing wild card entries at the British GP). Not just the races, but enough coverage of the riders "back stage" to reveal their

contd. Not just the races, but enough coverage of the riders "back stage" to reveal their personalities and background, thus creating and expanding a fan base and potential market to attract new sponsors from new areas.
