Co-ordit target Brands return.

The Co-ordit British Superbike team could be back on the grid for the final round of the season at Brands Hatch after missing the last two rounds.

The team were forced to pull the plug on their involvement in BSB before the Croft of the championship, but have continued to compete in both the Superstock and Henderson R1 Cup.

Now the team, which ran World Superbike refugee Dean Ellison for much of the season, is keen to get back on the grid for Brands Hatch, revealing they are talking to a number of riders.

“We are in talks with a few riders who would like to run the Co-ordit Superbike at Brands Hatch,” said team owner Pete Bradshaw. “So watch this space!”

Ellison's best result with the Co-ordit Yamaha this season was 14th place at Donington Park, Oulton Park and Mallory Park.

I thought they had run out of money? Think its a bit out of order that they are talking to other riders when Dean has put so much effort into the Co-ordit team this year, he has only actually crashed twice on his own accored yet spent more time on the back of marshalls bikes than on the R1! Doesnt make it easy to get the results hes capable of when the bike always breaks down..... Probably the worst thing a team could do and to the nicest, hardest working rider in the paddock!! On a lighter note, looking forward to watching some good close racing and Brands now the title''s wrapped up.

I have to agree. What a totally underhanded and unethical way to carry on. Dean worked so hard to get the Team Trucks and fuel paid for . He rode for nothing all year (As Usual) only to be faced with mechanical failures for nearly every race He sat out many qualifying sessions through mechanical failure and now they are rubbing his nose in it. It really does not pay for a rider to be loyal. I hope that every rider asked to compete will refuse.
