@ tg crescent probably could run a bmw/ bsb team, but i doubt if they would be wanted to run a bmw moto gp team,to be honest the crescent outfit have a dismal record (results wise),from memory the only success they really had was j reynolds bsb,which i think was more down to reynolds talent, and a decent suzuki,more than anything crescent done,expect tas/relentless to go a lot better next year with the factory fully behind them,the riders relentless choose will be interesting? with possibly some ex wsbk riders wanting a ride,along with the current bsb crop,who i think would be a better choice,the relentless team are real racers ? and are not reknowned for massageing egos/or past reputations

The BMW thing was mentioned because Paul Denning does tend to run a good team.
The fact that Suzuki has been unable to supply the goods for the team to work with, should not detract from the work the team has done in the past.

I have heard the Yamaha stories too, but as Denning and Cresent are the Suzuki main importers it may be unlikely.

there is no doubt the team is a slick one,with all the baubles,but it has not produced the results,the suzuki is/was good enough to win bsb title,others have done well with the suzuki

Mystic - I don't think TAS will get more support in 2011 - Suzuki are saving money and not supporting Crescent any more. The TAS proposal was obviously more attractive because it included BSS and the Roads. I don't expect ex WSB riders will be beating a path to their door either - there won't be a lot of money for riders wages.
