B&G unveil its Aprilia entry for Smrz

B&G Racing confirms its switch from Ducati to Aprilia for the remainder of the 2010 World Superbike season, starting with Jakub Smrz's home event in the Czech Republic.
This is the bike Jakub Smrz will be riding for the remainder of the 2010 World Superbike Championship after B&G Racing officially confirmed its switch from Ducati.

Continuing with title backers PATA, who have been instrumental in funding the unprecedented switch of bikes mid-season, Smrz will get his first run on the customer RSV-4 at his home event in Brno.

Despite the somewhat extreme nature of the decision, which was motivated by a recent lack of reliability from its Ducati entry, team owners Marco Borciani and Mirco Guandalini were delighted to be treading a new path.

"We really wanted to reach this deal,” they said. “We are confident that as a result of this collaboration, we will be able to prepare for Smrz the best machine in Superbike, if we look at the overall standings.

“However, changing will not be easy, but we are working very hard in order for us to be at our best at Brno, where we will be in three days time. I'm sure this change will be exciting for our rider too, who has been slowed down by technical issues lately and his hard work did not bear fruit.”

B&G Racing becomes the first full-time Aprilia satellite team in the World Superbike Championship and reduces Ducati's entry to six.

PLEASE stop it with the RSV4 MotoGP bike rubbish! It is a production bike FFS! Can you go out and buy one from a dealer? Yes! Enough said. Besides the BMW has more power than the Aprilia, so is the S1000RR a MotoGP bike? Biaggi and the team are the reasons why they are doing so well. The engineers are making the bike work perfectly for Max and his riding style. Who else is doing any good on an RSV4? No-one. Not even Camier can come close to super Max! Another double win at Brno? I hope so! :)
