re: "But after three months they said they didn't want to do it anymore. I was p****d off, not with Triumph, but with the situation because I knew we could do well. I don't know why they stopped.”

luca, luca, they stopped because (economy not withstanding) it was "a bridge too far". they would get handed their ****. bloor has been anti-racing since his inception. just having the 675 on the grid in it's first iteration was a small miracle. it would be better that they continue to build on THAT success with a MkII version than go chasing glory in superbike. that can come later... MUCH later.
