James East will not be part of FS-3 Racing's debut campaign in the MCE British Superbike championship after the two parties were 'unable to agree final terms'.

In December, the team announced it was set to make its BSB debut in 2016 with East having secured Paul Bird Motorsport's former Kawasaki ZX-10R machinery with businessman Nigel Snook at the helm, but the deal with the former National Superstock 1000 contender has now fallen through.

FS-3 Racing has confirmed it still plans to enter the 2016 championship and will announce a replacement rider ahead of its pre-season testing programme.

"We are disappointed with this development, but despite this we have worked hard to assemble a team with high-calibre, proven experienced staff and technical hardware to match,” Snook said. “We hope to conclude the final part of the jigsaw over the next week and ahead of a scheduled five day test across two circuits in Spain."

Marco Melandri claims to be willing to ride in any championship for little to no salary. If this team is serious about competing why not contact him, the worst he can say is no and the best he can say is yes and they'd have a world class rider.

Do you not think there is something else behind the whole Melandri situation? As you say he's a world class rider that publically said he'd ride for free (much to the annoyance of pro riders everywhere) so why hasn't he got a contract in his pocket?! Even Leon Haslam is riding for free at GB Moto!
