Now surely no racing champoinship in the world will accept an entry from this team.
Sacking riders for underperforming (race wims and podiums appears to be underperforming), not paying riders or crew, disappearing from the champoinship only to return for 1 round before deciding that WSB is of no interest to them!
If there is ever a need to have a ban for a team this is it.

Its about time Dorna sorted this team out in out in out its doing the Okey Cokey
They should be made to show finances up front and sign a bond stating they have the funds, They are playing with riders careers and have damaged the confidence of a number of quality riders with the exception of GUINTOLI.
The motto should be if you cant afford to play the game do not buy a ticket!!

It has been obvious for a while that they are shisesters and shouldn't be allowed in the car park, nevermind on the grid.
This is more of a shame because they put together some good bikes and got some worthwhile results.

I feel sorry for those in the team...riders/mechanics etc as it's the people with the money (or without it might be nearer the truth) who have done all the screwing up. I am sure there are a lot of people within that team who have suffered hugely.
As already mentioned, the team should never be allowed in another championship...specifically those at the top...on the plus side it would seem those lower down the scale knew their jobs pretty well and could put a decent bike together...i hope they all get jobs elsewhere with decent teams who pay them what they are worth

Sad to say this isn't a surprise,feel very sorry for the rider . Did comment when it was announced they was coming back Mark should still look for another ride coz it would end in tears. Seems like a beer company with champagne tastes and fizzy pop money. Lets hope the sponsor and team management never return. Marc V.D.S they definetly are not.
