Yoshimura Suzuki pulls out of final two rounds

The successful Japanese was set to race at Imola and Magny-Cours following its debut at Monza, but will now focus on its future plans.
Yoshimura Suzuki has revealed it will not participate in the final two rounds of this year's World Superbike Championship as originally planned.

The Japanese outfit announced prior to the 2010 season that it would participate in three events ahead of a full assault in 2011, but financial woes have forced it to abandon its plotted outings at Imola and Magny-Cours.

While a statement for the team didn't mention a change to its plans to join the WSBK ranks in 2011, Yoshimura did say that it has sacrificed these appearances as an attempt to benefit it in the long-term.

“The economy situation has been very tough after the crisis, and unfortunately motorcycle markets and the industries have been affected a lot since then.

“From this fact, we would rather to hold the current plans at this stage and then aim to further possibility in the near future.

The team has made one appearance in the WSBK arena this season with Daisaku Sakai at Monza. The Japanese racer – who only started one race after hurting himself in a fall – was set to compete at Imola too, while former race winner Yukio Kagayama was scheduled to ride at Magny-Cours.
