Pitt: Reitwagen have gone into hiding

The Australian looks to the BSB for an opportunity to revive his 2010 racing season.
Andrew Pitt says he is fielding offers from elsewhere after revealing he has not heard from Reitwagen BMW, the team with whom he competes with in the World Superbike Championship, for more than two weeks.

Pitt was left on the sidelines shortly before the Assen round of the series when Reitwagen confirmed it would not be able to take part due to financial concerns, but the Australian insists he was assured he would be back on the grid for Monza.

However, Pitt says he has not heard from any Reitwagen representatives since then and is now resigned to the fact he is unlikely to return with the team for the time being.

“The team has decided to withdraw from this weekend due to ongoing financial problems. This comes as no surprise to me and I feel that the team had no intention of competing here this weekend.

“There is a complete lack of communication at this stage and nobody can be contacted. I am meeting with BMW shortly to discuss these problems.”

Pitt went on to reveal he is now considering offers from other teams in World Superbikes, British Superbikes and the Endurance World Championship

Double World Supersport champion Pitt made his return to the Superbike series this season for the first time in four years, scoring points twice in the six races he competed.
