SMT scores first BSB podium with Ellison

"It's taken us 5 years and 120+ races to get here, never mind all the tears, laughter and money, but to finally get our first ever podium means the world to me and the team. When James joined the team, he promised me a podium and with the bike set-up how he wanted it, he's been true to his word and delivered his promise.

“I'm just so proud of the team and we're all on such a high right now, it's hard to find the words to describe it. I'd just like to thank sorrymate.com, especially Fergus Dalgarno, for all their support as without it we wouldn't have been on the grid, and also to all the other sponsors of the team as they've made it all possible.

“It's been a magnificent end to the season and we can now look forward to Macau and then start working hard to ensure we're back racing in 2012."

Agreed, James is a very good rider, you don't get to MotoGP and you don't finish 2nd in BSB if you're not. BUT, he is a Superbike rider, not a 600 rider. Get back on a big bike James!! Oli
