WSBK » Liberty changes view, criticises Guintoli


Just hours after offering one reason for Sylvain Guintoli's departure , Liberty Racing goes on the offensive by claiming it was his 'poor results' that led him to being dropped.

Translation: the team is experiencing funding/sponsor problems to the extent that they lack the money to pay their mechanics/technical staff, the crew refuses to work without pay, no crew = no ride for Guinters, so he (rightfully) walks away, and then the team blames their lack of funds/financial support on the poor performance of their best-scoring rider, Sylvain Guintoli. Now that's a first class operation all the way around.

The Frenchman, who won a race earlier this season at Assen, has been Liberty Racing's most successful rider since it joined the WSBK fray at the start of 2011, Guintoli having now notched up six podiums with the Czech-based team. Quote, unquote!

Silly people in a completely unprofessional team run by clowns!!!

The only thing to regret in this whole story is the loss of a race seat for Sylvain, and of course the mechanics.

But in every other aspect, there is nothing to regret.
This team is a complete joke, and now they are showing it everytime they make a press release.

They fire (or not) their most sucessful rider, because... he has achieved poor results.

Fu.. off, will ya?! Keep the king of crashers Smrz, and try and have some good results...

Hope to see a new team next season and Liberty out of the picture. They dont deserve to wear the Ducati banner.
