@Locky - ParkinGo didn't blow it! A couple of weeks ago in an interview with MCN Chaz Davies revealed that the ParkinGo Team Manager was helping him negotiate!

That is a sign of what a great relationship they have and that ParkinGo knew there was no chance of them retaining Chaz for 2013.

Good move for Chaz and for BMW. This is the ride that Ben Spies declined and that Rea also turned down, so I think in the end things have worked out very well. Marco will be disappointed, as I know he wanted Checa for his teammate, but Chaz is a guy on the way up and will work harder than most for the team.

I guess this now also makes Haslam to Ten Kate a formality.

No worries about Chaz going no2, been running round on a satalite and mixing it with the factories for the past few months.Class act thats been over looked for far too long and has battled all the way to a factory Beemer seat.

2013 WSB champion then back to Motogp please.

The difference between Aoyama and Haslam is Haslam can ride the blade

Sorry to see Davies leave Aprilia, he certainly deserves what the official ride. But on the other side you can't really blame Aprilia, they will resign Biaggi for next year and they can't fire Laverty who is performing very well right right in the middle of the championship fight...
