Isn't it time we all recognised that without visionary people such as PB, who are prepared to put their own money into projects and follow them through, this sport would not be at the level we enjoy today. He put together a world beating bike at Brands 13 years ago don't forget
Also, he says what he thinks and says it straight - very few do, and I persoally respect him for that
WRT James, did a reasonable job and hes a good guy - sadly he's not world class and PB has every right to try someone else

@bringback2strokes - couldn't agree with you more, racing needs blokes like Birdy. Love him or hate him, he has sunk millions into this sport with his BSB, WSB, Road Racing & Moto GP projects. Gets my vote.

MD Zane, I don't remember Rossi and Burgess manufacturing or designing a chassis.
For the ignorant the manufaturer of this chassis, which there are 2 versions, got the very last 2st pole position.

As with the above post, whatever kind of person Paul Bird is, we should be happy he is putting his money and persueded others to put their money into this sport. I remember 12 months ago a lot of posts as to wtf he had signed Ellison.

I think what Crash needs is all riders to smile and do little baby waves at the camera, and wait for all the other riders in a .
All team bosses to put loads of money in, and when its not working just smile and think well he's a nice guy, last, but nice.
All manufacturers to stop trying to build a bike to beat others.
A series promoter to not move with the times, lose money at every track because their nice tracks and keep everything as it was years ago even though years ago they were facing the same problems and they weren't good years.

@bringback2strokes - your problem, you see, is that you are talking sense and are obviously not a twisted cynic with far too much time on your hands. The general kind, who comment on here, are the complete antithesis of you and are as negative, cynical and mis informed as the day is long. They do however know absolutely everything.

It would be great just to see the bike be competitive and let's hope it is. We should give credit to Mr Bird for putting his money in at a time when money is in short supply. Top CRT would be fantatsic!
