why would Yamaha give someone who came a very poor second in BSB, apart form Silverstone race two he never won a race outright. Donnington Camier bike problems Mallory andrews & brookes crash & Cadwell Camier Disqualified.

A winning team Like Yahaha i would have thought would have gone with some proven race winning abliity, like crutchlow and tosland

I have watched him at serveral races this yeah and could not belive how poor he was against his team mate, yes Camier has had a fantastic year but to still finish soo far behind on the same bike.

Still wonder if Aprilia had not given Camier the chance to ride for them in the last 2 rounds whether Yamaha would have give him the chance

Good Luck James....Hey cranmer,I won't get in a spat with you my friend,but it might be because he finished every race with points and no crashes and ahead of maybe 26 other riders!! :)

I can asure you, Yamaha never intended to leave WSS, In fact, it was in the table the withdraw of Yamaha Germany, with Yamaha supporting another existing team, like Honda with Ten Kate and Kawasaki with Provec and it was made a proposal to Parkalgar to be that team, with Norge getting full factory Yamaha support.

As Yamaha Germany is testing, looks like the option was indeedkeeping the team.

Brilliant that Gino is getting to test.....the kid is a real star, would have thought Ten Kate would be keen to hang on to him tho'! Either way he needs and deserves to move up to the WSS class now.

Ant West is a great rider when his head is straight but unfortunately that doesn't seem to be very often....

Ellison? Dunno, its a way into the WSB paddock I guess so he could be looking at the way Jonny Rea and Cal have used that successfully to get on the WSB grid....

There were one or 2 BSB riders wandering around the paddock at Portimao carrying their CV's.....saw Ellison and Gary Mason was there too.....with those already there it was like walking round the BSB paddock, except it was hot, the sun was shining, and the food was better.... :)

lots of upset so called motorcycle fans out there,to finish second is no mean feat bsb is always a hot championship and the guys who sit in the comfort of their own homes should give the brits a cheer for having the oppertunity to go further in their chosen careers.
