damn honda that sucks. but the championship winning team will be back with a vengeance come 2015. Oh well, im sure padgetts could still fly the flag for Honda.
Anyways go Honda WEC team hope you can do it next year!! :)

Out of 17 confirmed entries, we have:

1 Ducati
2 Suzukis
2 Yamahas
11 Kawasakis

I love an underdog more than anyone and am delighted to see Kawasaki going from also-ran to champion's choice, but it's getting a little bit silly now...

If GBmoto have changed bikes, Honda UK have pulled out and Padgetts were kind of struggling as they were, we could be Honda-less for 2014 - which is pretty extraordinary!

A very pragmatic approach to racing, as an official factory team with an expectation to win rather than just making up the numbers with no marquee signings pause, take stock and come back stronger.

Who would they have put on the bike this year to challenge for the title? It was obvious Lowes was off and the other Honda riders where nowhere in comparison.

Very sensible.

Although i was very disappointed when kawasaki quit MotoGP you've got to think it was the right decision . Putting all their efforts into superbike racing has really paid off. Come on Honda its time for a proper new blade instead of just a face lift .
