Is it purely down to Colin Wright - I suspect it is because Rob Mac is a Yam man through and through has ridden at a top level but he could nt get em to work.
What is it that Colin is doing to get so much out of his riders and team?
He mentioned to Tony Carter that given the choice he would run Josh Brookes if he had the chance!
"He just needs the proper management"
Psychology, bit of piss taking or what?
The bikes were virtually standard (so we were told) and Camier still won. Huh?
Does the GSE money mean he gets the pick of riders?
Josh Brookes Royal Rumble at Mallory was just an incredible gift and typical of how stuff has gone their way.
Please correct me if this is not the case but:
I believe Rob Mac's team have developed the bike themselves, with help of course.
Airwaves have had a steady stream of parts and data direct from Yamaha WSB in Italy.
Camier is quite clearly a class act though. He was sensational in his rookie superbike year - cut short by the Cadwell crash of course.
Yeah I'd agree - Airwaves are being supported directly by the WSBK team, I get the impressin that the BSB & WSB boys are working together on a "project". Camier is an excellent rider - he's got a long and succesful career in front of him, but as you said - there is a large element of luck as well, I couldn't believe what I saw at Mallory....
As for the comment relating to Josh Brookes, I think that was just mind games intended to be 2 fingers up at HM Plant Honda and Jack Valentine (Suzuki). Brookes is a fast rider and he has had problems with the Honda brakes - apparently a couple of other racing Honda's around the world have had (this months fast bikes), and I still hold that what happened at Mallory was a reult of 2nd, 3rd & 4th places getting distracted by what happened when the track caught Brookes out.
