I feel sorry for Mr Laverty already. I like the guy but have no time for the odious cretin he'll be riding for. A man that thinks the best way to motivate his rdiers is to publicly slag them off on live tv.
I'm actually surprised he managed to find anyone willing to put up with his managerial skills and style.

To a commenter on page 1:

Is there still such a thing as a 'Factory Honda' in BSB? In fact is there one in any superbike series?

Sure some team personnel have a better relationship with Honda and can get better parts than others but 'Factory Honda' doesn't seem to have existed in BSB since Kiyo and Rutter were on them?

I think it is quite obvious why James rather left for BSB! The CRT misery is an embarrassment and when the guys have other options, they go for it. DORNA is gonna ruing this sport. The only effect of CRT is the risk of fatal collisions...

Whilst Ellison may be able to go quick. He was always cruising whenever the camera was on him. That would erk me me if I was his manager. Compare that to Johnny Rea, he is always on it. And I always feel confident he IS getting the best out of the bike.
Really good luck to the new riders, they need it!
And Ellison will be in the BSB shoot out, come the end of the season , no problem.
