‘We want MORE factory support in BSB!’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

One man dis­put­ing Mark Smith-Halvors­enõs claims that di­rect factory support is not within the 'spirit of the cham­pi­onship' is BSB se­ries direc­tor Stu­art Higgs, who says heõd ac­tively en­cour­age more factory in­volve­ment in the cham­pi­onship.

'for any team in this cham­pi­onship to re­ceive of­fi­cial factory back­ing is great recog­ni­tion for the se­ries,' he said. "I would ab­so­lutely en­cour­age more factory in­volve­ment, itõs taken a while for Du­cati to come back and I would hope that ev­ery other man­u­fac­turer will re­turn to the table.

ÒIT was­nõt too long ago that the HM Plant Hon­das car­ried HRC stick­ers and last year the Mil­wau­kee Yamaha team had of­fi­cial support from Yamaha. Maybe Gb­moto need to be talk­ing to Kawasaki about the level of support?
