What an absolute shambles of a team,with any luck they'll disappear up there own backsides.
Would be nice to see a team from BSB or the AMA make the move up to WSBKS someone like the Swan Yamaha team,put it this way they'd do a more professional job than Effenbert Liberty.

The 'Team WRG' of the WSB paddock. They need to be realistic about their status within the paddock and stop throwing their dummies out of the pram when the races don't get stopped because one of their riders has broken down, or stop sacking riders who are doing a good job on privateer machinery. Hate this team.

I am pleased to see Lorenzo Lanzi getting another ride, however I don't understand why the team would drop Smrz who is a fast rider and deserves a permanent slot in WSBK.

I also don't understand why Brett McCormick isn't riding for Effenbert Liberty. A great shame that his debut season was ruined by that incident with Checa a few months ago.

Hopefully Sylvain Guintoli will help Jakub and Brett get new rides where they can both show Liberty what a mistake they have made.

@IntheGravel - is that true or are you joking?

McCormick is riding this weekend - full three man line-up this year.

I heard a rumour Smrz owes money, but not sure how true that is. Either way, there is something not quite right about this team!

@Boo - yes - just noticed his name in the FP1 list, however the report by Crash a few days ago said he wasn't riding.

This team is a shambles - they couldn't organise a p@ss up in an effenbert brewery!

If Smrz owes the team money, presumably his sponsors have not been paying.

I know it's the way things are, that most rides in BSB and Moto2 are pay rides, but it is sad that WSBK has gone this route.

I remember when riders got paid!
