WSBK » Erik Buell Racing confirms WSBK entry

rdc: Looks intersting, but the riders are unlikely to be class of the field, prehaps Camier would have been a good choice, or at least a yardstick
I agree, an experienced WSBK rider would be a better choice, but I think Eric Buell is somewhat nationalistic, to say the least. No doubt, Ben Spies would have been an excellent choice, but I'm afraid we've seen the last of Ben.

WSBK » Erik Buell Racing confirms WSBK entry

I see there are some who think the EBR is a warmed over Harley-Davidson, complete with handlebar streamers and floorboards. You may be in for quite a shock. The EBR may do quite well in WSBK. Eric Buell knows what he is doing. The Buell association with Harley-Davidson is long over. Yes, at on time, Buells used a modified Harley designed motor. That was some five years ago, or so. There was an acrimonious parting of the ways when Eric Buell refused to any longer use the Harley engine. Buells rarely finished a race without an engine failure when running the Harley engines. In fact, Harley forced Buell to not manufacture any motorcycles after the breakup for a period of 3 years, if I'm not mistaken. Since Buell, as EBR, has resumed racing motorcycles they have had considerable success in AMA racing, winning the Daytona Sportbike championship in 2009, as well as winning a championship in European Superbike Championship in 2011. This EBR ain't no Harley!

F1 » FIA returns to F1 expansion plan

BT33: Prodive wanted to enter F1 on the condition that they could buy complete cars off other teams such a McLaren as was allowed in the sixties seventies but was not permitted. Williams' first race was the 1977 Spanish Grand Prix, where the new team ran a March chassis. Enzo Ferrari raced Alfas before building his own cars. Teams should be allowed to buy cars off other teams
Don't forget Rob Walker running a Lotus for Stirling Moss.
