In the Kawi article they mentioned a spec change, in this instance about starter motors. Anyone got a link for what all the changes are for next year?

Some might say he had a good ride and walked away from it. Fixi crescent Suzuki. Wasn't looking too shabby by the end of the season. Of course money might have been a different story.

From Google Translate:

"It 'lasted a year, the [lack] of Francis Batta [from] Superbike. In 2013, [unless there are] last minute surprises, the [Belgian] manager and Ducati will sign an agreement that binds them for next season.

[This] Will be an official team to all effects (which might be called again Ducati-Alstare as in the past), and the structure of the team is ready to 90%.

"I was organizzandomi" [<--Google fails at that word!] said Francis Batta "to race in Supersport with the MV Agusta F3 if we had reached an agreement. I contacted some people who have worked with me in the past, and [I] did not have a lot of work to evaluate the [possibility of working with] Ducati" .

The team will be reinforced by [a team] engineer who will perform together with the Ducati team and Checa [for] the bulk of development work of this bike that will debut in the World Superbike Championship next year.

"There is still much to discuss" continued Batta, "but I hope to find an agreement. I can not wait to return to Superbike and above all to do [it] with the Ducati."

For now, the plans call for a single rider, Carlos Checa, of course, but Batta spoke with Sylvain Guintoli who has raced [previously] for the Belgian [team]. "Sylvain is a fast guy that has proven to ride a Ducati. [He is] educated, speaks several languages ​,​and made ​​a perfect match with Checa. Surely they both [can add to the] team and this will undoubtedly lead to the development of the bike. But first we have to find the budget to field two riders. "

"Tomorrow we might find out something more."

Maybe this year will be the year Francis Batta stops with those foolish glasses.

Still, when you sign up for a ride, then pull the plug on them without warning........dodgy. I was hoping Josh Waters would get the ride, after the Suzuka 8hr performance, and some pretty impressive tests with the team at Aragon. Probably needed to bring some money with him.....???

Time to invest in the Italian textile industry. Can't imagine the budget to manufacture the HUGE RED oxford shirts to replace the HUGE WHITE oxford shirts Batta previously favored.
