BSB » Pitt slams Motorpoint Yamaha treatment

@ matt The last official update that I saw was when GSE confirmed they were having to withdraw from 2010 because no substantive title sponsorship offer was in place in time to lodge an entry. There was a report the same day that 2 sponsors had approached with joint title offers but their combined offer was not sufficient value to make this possible. The good news however is that the newest interview I could find with Colin Wright it was stated that GSE would return at some point if they can get a title sponsor, budget and machinery in order to be a credible team but not if it was a shoestring that would not allow them to fight for wins

BSB » Pitt slams Motorpoint Yamaha treatment

@ TimBo Might be an idea to check your facts before posting Colin Wright (GSE Racing) DID NOT bail out. They had bikes, riders and contracts ready but Airwaves their main sponsor pulled out at the height of the credit crunch and despite great efforts a suitable replacement sponsor could not be found in time to lodge an entry for this seasons championship. I would not bet against GSE returning as soon as they can regroup theirs was a worthy team in BSB

BSB » Pitt slams Motorpoint Yamaha treatment

Andrew Pitt should not really be surprised over this Rob Mac has a long standing reputation for dropping riders with no notice when the whim or a chance presented its self The real surprise is the poor performance of the Rob Mac bikes over the last couple of years. Last year they had identical spec bikes to the ones provided to GSE and where GSE were constantly winning or challenging for wins Rob Mac bikes were at best midfield

MotoGP » ‘Realistic’ Stoner facing a ‘tough job’

I do not think the bike has a problem perse I believe its simpler than that. For the last few seasons the bike was designed around Stoner in much the same way Ferrari used to design their car around Schumacher. Unlike Ferrari however Ducati need to sell customer bikes in order to help fund racing. Simple fact is that the bike designed around stoner was almost unrideable by anyone else and Ducatis customer teams were about to end their contracts because of it so Ducati changed the bike and engine to make it more user friendly. The changed bike has been enjoying more success in the hands of all its other riders except Stoner. I believe that it is a case of in this new guise Casey can not gel with the bike in the way he used to. The real question should be will Casey gel with the Honda. Honda are famous for their "we build the bike you ride it and win" attitude and they have a reputation for not making changes to suit one rider only

MotoGP » Lorenzo: 'Slow' M1 like riding a 250

ps @ desmotog Ducati better off? at start of Indy both works Ducatis had 2 unused engines remaining Perversely the customer Ducatis all had 3 unused engines each Ducati however do have the largest ratio of engines per rider that have been scrapped due to failure with one for every rider except Stoner who has 2 ( possibly 3 because its believed his engine failed when he threw it in the gravel at Indy )
