My first reaction to this story is that this must be the ride that Simon Buckmaster was advertising at a cost of 300000.
I don't see a problem with that myself, that's just the way motorsport is at the moment due to teams struggling to find sponsors.
I just wonder how Jessopp managed to get the money and hope he gets the results to justify it.
Best of luck.

His backers must have very deep pockets to fulfill Buckmaster's demands, just hope it buys a better bike than Ellison had for most of this season....

His dad owns Riders of Bridgewater, massive west country Ducati/Harley dealership, and the owners of the team Matin and Michael Rutter rode for this year, so thats where the cash came from!!

Not sure about this move, might have a few top tens, but i cannot see him troubling his team-mate Sam Lowes much this year!!

He is a regular top 10 finisher in BSB and 11th in a tough championship, that makes him good enough for WSS in my book. We should be grateful his Dad has the money as many of our brits do not get the chance to. Good Luck Kid.
