Haslam to BMW

Alstare Suzuki has released Leon Haslam from his contract, meaning the Brit is free to sign for BMW’s World Superbike factory team in 2011.    The decision came after Suzuki could not confirm the level of factory support in 2011, meaning Alstare could not realistically fight for the championship. Team boss Francis Batta then decided he should let Haslam ‘decide his own...

Suzuki's loss is BMW's gain. Haslam will be very hard to beat next year.

not really sure what too say on this,have suzuki told leon to go??does leon want to go??(as all year he has been saying how happy he is at suzuki)...weird!!!!

i don't think the bmw is a championship winning bike to be honest,not even with leon on it(i hope i am proved wrong mind!).all the best leon i hope you do well next year(and most importantly we still got olly in the paddock!! ha ha.).

ELF Business

I agree Suzuki could have won the title with Haslam and you can be sure that this would have increased sales of the GSXR. Suzuki's treatment of Haslam I suspect has been poor. I am not convinced that teh BMW will be a championship winning machine next year even with a top world class rider like Leon on it. Looks like history could be repeating itself Ron on the ill fated ELF and Leon on the BMW. I hope I am wrong.

the only series suzuki have put everything into is the ama superbike series with the yoshimura suzuki team.

them bikes are brilliant to ride and just shows you when ben spies got on it and dominated.

and this is because the gsxr 600 sells massively state side.and america is there biggest customer.

If a few million in the bank and 2 wsb titles makes JT a "tosser" ... What the hell does that make you ... With your grand achievements?... He really must be upset that someone of your sway and stature doesn't like him.
