MSS Kawasaki's BSB future uncertain

“We're pretty excited about the prospect of Alastair riding our bikes at
the North West,” added Morgan, who saw Rutter triumph under the
 MSS banner in the Superstock class at the event in the spring.

“We had a good run at the event with Michael on the Superstock bike and
 we had the Superbike working well at the end, so we're confident with 
the bikes and confident with Alastair, because he goes like a jet around

“Alastair had a whizz out on the bikes at Snetterton and 
even though he only managed 15 or 20 laps he got a base feel for the
 bike," Morgan told the Belfast News Letter.

“The bikes are clearly good enough to run at the front and Alastair is
 obviously the man around there.

“We've also done a deal with Dean Harrison next season and his RC 
Express Racing team so it should be really good for us because you've 
got Alastair's experience while Dean is coming through.

“We'll be supporting Dean with technical help and helping with the bikes 
at the North West, TT and Ulster Grand Prix and we may run another rider 
at the TT depending on what budget we are able to put together.”

Im afraid to say it but BSB will become like WRC. There will be 2 or maybe 3 teams and a handful of bikes. The rest (if any) will be just making up the numbers. Sad but I hope it doesnt come to this.

@ mike. Correct and I agree. However, it's not good for sponsors. They want exposure and a return for their money. More and more will bite the dust before the start of the 2013 season.
