BSS: Hamilton chasing competitive ride

Jamie Hamilton has found himself without a ride after parting company with Gearlink Kawasaki.

The current Metzeler National Superstock 600 champion's only points-scoring result of the year was a 14th place at Mallory park.

“This season has been action packed so far. I've had my motorhome ransacked and all my gear nicked, broken my collar one and I'm now without a ride," said Hamilton. "I think that is pretty eventful and we are only halfway through.

"I know I can be competitive and run at the front I just need the opportunity. I am capable of running in any class; I just want the chance to prove it.”

The bike is a proven winner but as always its down to funding no doubt. There are a lot of riders missing from the field this year due to funding (lack of!) I have been to a couple of BSB meetings this year and its definately not what it used to be. Weired feeling in the paddock... Wonder who will be next to be ripped off/sacked through lack of funding?
