    The beauty of the Spa result was the fact they won it by a mile, BM bless e’m have been on a mighty steep learning curve in recent years and as far a WSB and BSB are concerned they still are, but clearly they are making some sort of progress or be it through gritted teeth.

    What I don’t get is if a small ish bike manufacture like KTM can go racing why don’t BMW get involved?

    I guess the same could be said for Kawasaki “I know they did” I guess they are all to focused on road bikes now days.
    After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

    The short answer is KTM don’t foot the bill Redbull do.

    It’s a shame I can’t go into my GP connections but they ain’t for these pages, but the factory that intrigues me is Aprillia how the hell they finance the operation heaven knows

    So with all the great PR they are both getting and going to...exactly what are they going to do with it sell another couple of hundred bikes!!!  :087: Cuz thats what’s it’s really all about and while the Suzuki thing is a tad more complex a very similar end game in the end cuz the numbers don’t add up.

    It's not always about the bottom line. Often it's about the ego of the owner(s). Eddie Jordan, Colin Chapman, Frank Williams, Soichiro Honda. I doubt any of them got their money back.
