I'm glad that Shakey has stayed in BSB, not because I lke Shakey, but more because this has bitten bord on the ****, he wants a british rider but his choices were Shakey, Sam Lowes and Tommy Hill all who have ruled themselves out, bet he wishes he'd kept James Ellison, who i thought did a fantistic job under very trying circumstances.

People still taking cheap shots at the CRT bikes- why?
The first year of CRT and the bikes were comparatively closer to the front runners than many of the lesser F1 teams.

Think of the budget the manufacturers have compared to the independent CRT teams.
Next year the ART bikes will be far faster as they're being optimised for MotoGP Bridgestones and not WSBK Pirellis.

They'll also have a years worth of data and higher spec electronics.

Ok, HRC are working on customer bikes to drive CRTs out but next year CRT will be significantly faster. I'm not saying the PBM 'own' bike will be fast but if he ran a 2013 ART bike rather than James' 2012 version it could actually be a good seat.

Why run two different model of bike, surely the advantage of a two bike team is twice as much data when testing.

Data and track time is the key to success

With Yamaha, and hopefully other manufacturers, providing MotoGP speciffic engines from 2014, I think the CRT concept is far from dead. Looks much more like they are going to manage to have things like in F1, with independent chassis builders using racing engines from various suppliers. They went with souped up street engines this year for a lack of choice.

Those CRT bikes should be much faster and quicker than WSBK bikes. But bcoz of *****s inside DORNA , they slower and look ugly stupid. If U take max Aprilia , install Carbon brake and shed a few kilos, put Stone tire, plus modify EC , logically guarantees of 3 second quicker than Max original Bike..

Another year as a BSB big-timer or another kicked-at, sneered-at nobody on a CRT-urd... yeah I'd go with option A as well. Go for a 4th and keep that mojo going with Kawasaki.

As previous poster. expect martin jessop to be in with a shout. he will have the sponsership for the ride. unfortunatly tommy bridewell, who has proved his worth on the stock supersonic bmw probably wont have the funds to buy the ride.
I like jessop. he has shown pace on the duc in bsb before he broke his leg.

As much as i support those guys. pbm will be struggling to be competitive. its such a shame because we all want to get behind our british team.
