WSBK » Talmacsi still unsure of Superbike switch

The Hungarian enjoyed his outing on the ZX-10R in Sepang but isn't sure whether to make the full-time move.

Agree... it's not as though he has that many 'choices'

He'd be a fool to turn ANYTHING down that's offered to him. He's not exactly cream of the crop, and at this time of the year, lucky to get any offers, as many teams are close to starting the season!

That's because Gabor knows that, if you're career is not on the up and up, then once in Superbikes, there is unlikely to be a route back to the GP world. On the plus side however, Superbikes provides better and more competitive racing and a friendlier grid, becoming a master at Superbikes such as Bayliss, Fogarty or Haga still comes with huge prestige. I go to GP, WSBK and BSB races, but I enjoy the WSBK ones most.

Don't do it Gabor!!!!!!

Did none of the rest of you notice how quickly people got dropped and injured in Moto2 last season? The guys has a world title and a Moto2 podium to his name. He would be top of many a team managers sub list.

I know it's not great fun to be an ambulance chaser or topple a struggling rider for their bike, but seriously, a Pedercini Kawasaki? = Bye bye career. Once you leave the GP padddock it is very very hard to get back in it. Patience Gabor, patience.

Hi! There is an age limit in 125 so he cannot go back there. Problem is that teams/sponsors do not really see the potential in an east-european driver because of the size of the market. There are 10 million people in Hungary, were he Italian, or Spanish he would have a steady ride. The economic situation did not come in handy either.... Anyway, fingers crossed!
