Wonder if Ron's thinking about swapping to BMW's for the race school?
Also anyone know if he will move back to Donington now it's back up & running?

Haslam school swapping to BMW - doubt it...

Dates are up next year, again at Silverstone. It's a pain for them in terms of travel but is saving them a fortune in crash damage. South circuit is good fun and very fast!!

Well done guys and I'm sure it's been a successful testing ... but ... there's those words again - "Ohlins forks originally designed for use in MotoGP"!! We're not buying the prototype bikes ... start racing World Superbikes, like the ones we buy and ride, and not MotoGP bikes dressed up to look like Superbikes!!! :p

Lance - the ones you can buy are called Superstock.

The bikes used to win in WSB have never been ones you could buy - they just look like ones you can buy. The rules do not require them to use the original forks so teams with deep pockets have been using the previous years MotoGP forks for years.

It could have been worse Lance. At least your Blade won't vibrate like a Soviet tractor at anything under 7,000 revs.

Wouldn't suppose BMW could supply the tiddler bikes Ron's school also needs, so, unlikely he'll swap.

Wouldn't it be great to see Rocket Ron having a ride out at a BSB round (Donington Park?) next year - I bet any money he would get the biggest cheer. A true gent and great all round guy.
