MotoGP » Kawasaki confirms inevitable.


They are out, following from MotoGP.com: Amid quickly changing business environment, Kawasaki has been promptly taking countermeasures to cope with the situation. As the world economy is not likely to recover in a short period due to the major impact of the financial crisis, Kawasaki decided to suspend its MotoGP racing activities from 2009 season onward and reallocate management resources more efficiently. Kawasaki will continue racing activities using mass-produced motorcycles as well as supporting general race-oriented customers. Kawasaki would like to thank all the fans and all those who have forwarded us great help. Press release courtesy of Kawasaki Heavy Industries

MotoGP » Kawasaki speak: No decision yet.


They are definatly out of Moto GP TOKYO (AFP) — Japan's Kawasaki Heavy Industries said Friday it will withdraw from the MotoGP racing circuit as the global economic crisis pressures the firm to cut costs. "The effect of the current financial crisis on the global economy is extremely significant and an extended period of time is required for a recovery," Kawasaki said in a statement. "We saw the need for efficient redistribution of our management resources and have decided to forgo participation in the Moto GP from 2009 on," it said. Kawasaki spends roughly four billion yen (43.8 million dollars) annually to run the team, said an official of the company based in the western Japan

MotoGP » Kawasaki poised to quit MotoGP?


Govey - That's the point I'm trying to make. WSBK is a close & exciting series, this is attractive to viewers, sponsors & manufacturers. FG Sport have worked out a set of rules that encouages this close racing & WSBK is flourishing. MotoGP at the moment definatly isn't flourishing. Think about the 08 season if Rossi wasn't there, Stoner would have walked it! Maybe we would have seen some battles further down the feild but nothing like the Laguna race. All I am saying is that without Rossi MotoGP would not attract the viewers it does now, if you ask people who aren't in to bikes to name 1 rider & they always say 'Valentino Rossi' This is attracting the fans which attracts the sponsors.

MotoGP » Hopkins: Everything is up in the air.


I really hope they stay in Moto GP but the tone of Hopper's statement doesn't seem very optimistic. Both Hopper & Melandri are world class racers but I wouldn't let either of them pick my lottery numbers, they are both very unlucky in the decision making department. Fingers crossed for them. Pandaman - Not sure if you have been watching but Bayliss retired so a Rossi vs Bayliss WSBK race is a little unlikely.

I think I'm going to enter Moto GP next year on a C90, with the size of the field I'm almost guarenteed some points!!! The future certainly isn't looking bright for the championship. Rossi only has 2 years left on his contract then he'll be off looking for his new challenge, probably WRC by the sounds of it. Love hom or loathe him he is keeping things alive at Moto GP & without him it will be very different. That means Dorna have only 24mths to sort things out & make a chapionship that can rival WSBK for excitment, after all that's why we all watch it. Losing Eurosport coverage is another nail in the coffin, the BBC coverage is terrible. Bye Bye Moto GP. Hello WSBK the new king!
