Too true. It is a shame this team still exists, no wonder lowes and cluzel left. Only in it for the money, 6 riders with little talent. And no uk riders, shame on them.

Why not give some young kid a go. Last year was his first year on a 600. I have watched this kid race for a few years now, and he has some talent - actually lead the British 125 championship in 2011, before moving to the EJC. He then went back and raced at Oulton Park BSB and won the race by 20 seconds. He will only improve his skills on a 600 now that he has PTR behind him. I applaud PTR.

have had one year on a 600 in, too race super stock in Europe it's will cost us the same money. And you get no where out of it, you do another year in it and we would only be back in the same situation anyway, you have to do a learning year in supersport anyway. And also (ptrdown) what's your real name? Lets see if your on the list for world supersport and see if your not a d class rider?

This kid has proved his speed in the 125's and a couple of races, where he had a decent bike, in the 600's. He actually did better in the British 125's than Casey Stoner. So the people on this board who know nothing about Davies once again claim to know more than those who run the teams. They look for those who adapt to circumstances and do as well as they can with the equipment given. He raced 450, 125, 250 and 600cc in one season against England and Europes best juniors and podiumed in all classes. He won the European Junior Cup for God's sake! Matt deserves this ride more than 99.9% of other riders. As for paying for the ride, he could have raced Moto3 this season but couldn't bring enough money with him.

What you can be sure of is that he will get a decent bike and a good team of people around him. PTR turn out one of the best bikes on the grid. Good luck Matt.
