Byrne, Ellison reveal Superbike attraction.

"But where I am right now, this was just the perfect opportunity for me. I'm looking more long term - rather than going into World Superbikes, maybe getting a couple of podiums and fighting for the world championship - and then what do you do after that, you know?

"It's so hard for British riders to get into MotoGP. This door was opened by Peter Clifford (WCM team manager) and it was just 'right - I'm in' and it's paid off. People are noticing what we can do, Peter's happy with the way things are going and I'm building a good relationship with the team.

"So hopefully, when we do get the V6 going and if it starts working, I've got a long term relationship with these guys," Ellison concluded.

Ellison currently sits 22nd in the MotoGP World Championship standings with 4-points to his credit, while Byrne is 23rd with 1-point.
