Haslam reiterates the challenges he faces with the lack of electronic rider aids in BSB imposed by the control ECU rules. “World championship racing is all about electronics, how many data guys you have and how much experience you have behind a computer to make your bike work on a Sunday.
“In the British championship that factor is out the window. You don’t need the data guys and the electronics guys as much, you don’t have so many things to set up to get your bike to work. Hence the racing is a lot closer.”
Haslam will have to call on every morsel of his vast experience to make the transition back into a series that he feels is still as competitive as any in the world. “The competition in BSB is just as strong as it always has been,” he reflected.
