BE1 chose to leave... course they did :)

Surely they would have been testing the Yam's if the decision was theirs, not the 675's that they actually tested!

As for the terd Triumph comment, I bet you have never even ridden one, let alone raced one!

BE1 were not only meant to be racing in WSS this year but also testing the 2012 Triumph 1100cc triple Superbike, hence the hiring of Scassa who dropped down from SBK with a view to moving back up. The problem lies at Hinkley. New regime not interested in racing or paying anyone else to ...

Triple Treat has hit the nail on the head. I dont think be1 would have tested the triumph at the end of last year if they werent planning on racing them. It all seems a bit of a rush job too.
