Alstare had a bad year and it started out bad with Carlos sick and then crashing in Phillip Island and weather issues during testing....
if it weren't for bad luck they would have no luck at all!!

I was happy to see them come back but the project was rushed to start and a new bike and new team literally as they had been out for a while and had not dealt with the ducati for a decade...

Anyway, I wish them well and want them to come back when the time is right.

Someone correct me if I am wrong but did Ducati some two possibly three years back say they would no longer be a factory racing team. Yet here they are telling us what their plans are going to be for 2014 surely that all depends on some team buying their bikes to race. In summary are they or are they not a factory team?

I hope Ducati can turn things around. With BMW pulling their factory support, which is a shame because they have come a long way, I would love to see another competitive team on track.

On another note, as an American with not a lot to cheer about the past few years, I would love to see Spies come back. Hopefully if he does he can find his mojo in WSBK??? Ducati would also have to find theirs for that to happen.

which could very well be that we're "Cancelling Christmas" in it's entirety. we're focused on grandprix and it's going to take a year to rehomologate the R with a trellis. see you in 2015.

Ducati needs to step up their game or else it will be another Kawi and Aprilia show. The other manufacturers are just tagging along but do not possess the resources and drive behind Kawi and Aprilia. In order to seal more championships in the future, Kawasaki needs to acquire another potential champion to field a 3-man team.
