Rutter, Ducati seal new sponsorship deal

“The current engine is great for the roads but we do need to take drive out of the engine for BSB tracks to make the power more useable. You can do it with electronics but then all you are doing is slowing he bike. It's better if you can achieve the same result by moving the power around.”

Rutter was also thrilled with the deal, though he stresses it will still be a privately-funded and run operation.

“People are saying we've now got a factory Ducati but it's not a factory bike in the true sense of the word, we haven't got factory suspension or 10 more people in the garage looking busy! Martin and I have a chance of winning the title, but I won't worry unless we get to the first race and we're at the back of the grid!”

The deal with Rapid Solicitors will also see the team enter Superstock series with Michael Booth, while team will prepare bikes for the Isle of Man TT, North West 200 and Macau GP.
