Plenty of English chassis manufacturers in Moto2 but where the hell are the English riders?? Will this MotoGP circus ever change? If you're not Italian, Spanish or Japanese you've got no hope.........utterly, utterly boring.

Muppet - Graeme Gowland has tested for Steve Bones.

When we get a national Moto2 series we will get more riders progressing into Moto2 and MotoGP. At the moment British racing is structured around Supersport and Superbike. Brit riders that have the ambition and dedication to make it in GP's currently race in the Spanish 125 and CEV championships.

I think Crutchlow would've done well in Moto2, but Yamaha had other plans for him.

I think once a few national series start a Moto2 class, the Spanish/Italian overload will reduce.
Presuming the rider can get money for a GP effort of course.

We have the same problem getting local support for our riders in Australia as you do in England, with the added disadvantage of most of the races being a long way from us and the markets of potential sponsors.
