PTR have lost their behind the scenes genius Mark "Brains" Woodage to the Splitlath Redmond BSB team so I am concerned whether PTR can provide a good service to that number of riders.

Also why did "Brains" leave - was it for more money or did he feel that PTR were taking on too big a workload?

@Simon Buckmaster
Have you dropped your price? it was 350k.

As I said yesterday, Pasini's 250k seems like a bargain.
I am sure all those who kept slating Motogp will be quiet, need to realise its in all forms of racing and very rife in WSB.

This Lad is good he showed that last year in moto 2

But i bet all 7 riders do not get exactly the same equipment, engines etc... i mean be realistic you cant look after 7 riders all equally im not having it!

youd have to say that lowes and cluzel would be the 2 main riders. big miss losing brains as well. he has prob seen sense

good luck to jessop and lowes, i hope they get the right treatment

@Mick - You are right - the price is 350,000 Euros and was in my press release published by Crash in September (sorry I forgot - so busy counting). Extract below

PTR wants any aspiring World Champions who would be interested in joining the team for 2012 to come forward and book their place on what is widely regarded as the best Supersport Honda in the World - but the fact is they will need talent and money to get the seat

The anticipated finance level to compete in the 14-round 2012 World Supersport Championship is a cost effective career catapulting 350,000 Euros
