@ Jayne

I think you'll find he's right, van der Mark is in Supersport with Ten Kate in 2013. Oh and whilst we're at it, Talmacsi isn't with Kawasaki in 2013, he's on a Honda.

great! just when i thought he would leave his comfort zone of wss and return back to moto2 for some unfinished business.

i guess he rather be a big fish in a small pond... a kind of fish that almost being rolled over by the violent tide of the open ocean that is moto2.

perhaps hes playing it smart and lining himself for a factory (properly supported) ride in wsbk next year?? some of you cant think that far ahead though. The real game goes on behind the cameras, what you see on TV is for the sponsors/advertisers.

Kawasaki are trying to build a presence in growing markets hence the india badged team. What the point of trying to please a handfull of geriatric a$$holes shuffling around at a rainy mallory park lol.

Obviously there'll be no Indian in that team. But the team was bought by the Indian Cricket Team Captain, Mahendar Singh Dhoni. Hence, the name.

I think the Crazy Turk will have his hands full With Sam Lowes next season, Every time the Factory R6 has been wheeled out its won the championship, Next year will be no different, Lots of Russian Money and a rider as capable as Sam With a decent team behind him, this could be his year.

speed is not what Sam lacks, its not crashing and maintaining a good race rhythm that is in question, also, dont know if leaving the best bike on the grid for the next best bike is really going to solve his problems with consistency. If Kenan keeps it clean and sharp he should manage well.

The PTR bike is far from the best bike on the Grid, Sam has struggled all season with a lack of interest from his Team, Not a big Payer like Cluzel so his wishes were pretty much at the bottom of the pecking order, Set up data not being put into his bike at the circuit, A general lack of set up direction from those around him, hence the big bust up. How about a cyber 50p bet, Mines on Sam.
